commented on Relationship Advice for Americans from Elderly British Aristocrats
One DOES wonder why people bother getting married at all considering how likely it is they will need to divorce. Divorce is exhausting, expensive, and leaves a sense of betrayal in its wake yet people choose to marry each other, often they marry several times, sometimes to the person they just divorced.
One thing is clear. Tolerating the differences in another person and not freaking out about how their behavior reflects on YOU all the time is an interesting relationship saver. I'm not talking to people getting their asses beaten or compromising their own core values (neither was Dan, btw).
Perhaps less about affluence, misogyny, or "the changing times" and more a question of "is marriage a contract and if so could you keep the contract simple and balanced enough that it works for the people engaging it?"

Deep, brooding ink bomb really says it all. That's why it tastes like graffiti.

What's with all this "bigger" talk? Giant Jenga is fucking awesome. Like some, ahem, other things, size is kind of meaningless as long as it's fun to play with.
