I don't see a problem, as long as your girlfriend is energetic and punctual. She might even have some spare time to help DW get organized, and carry some of her stuff.


The reason our wives tend to live longer is that we suggest stuff like this, from time to time.

Question guys?? I need some advice. How much time do I have? Do I spend what time I have taking care of an unfaithful wife (how much do I owe her?)
I know this is a RV site but some of you guys have been through this thing.

DO I BAIL OR STAY?
Honest guys I'm not making this up.
You already made that decision 48 years ago.

Doesn't the line go "for better or worse, in sickness or health"?

No wife, no kids. I go where I want, when I want, for as long as I want. There are a lot of available women who may be interested, and if one goes along we will have a lot better time than most married people. I have never been accused of not knowing how to treat a lady well. But I don't intend to impose myself on one full time. They shouldn't have to put up with my idiosyncrasies, and vice versa.

There are three states of marriage: happily married, married, and unhappily married. I suppose a few here will take offense at this, but the number of people happily married is dwarfed by the other two. I know there really are some people who are happily married, but most people who claim to be happily married are liars. They are either unhappy, or they are just coasting along because it's the just the way things are, and don't want to admit it to anyone, including themselves. I have been in less than pleasant relationships, and have always chosen to leave. Life is too short to spend it that way. I am especially baffled by the people who would rather be in an unhappy relationship than be alone. It makes no sense to me. I'm quite content to be single, and I can have dinner and time together with a different woman every week if I choose. Or I can pack my stuff and be gone for weeks, and have no one asking where I'm going, who I'm going with, or when I'll be back.

What baffles me most is the number of people who have been married multiple times and are now in their third, fourth, or even fifth(or more) unhappy marriage, and can't seem to figure out why. If they don't understand it, they're either incredibly ignorant or incredibly arrogant.

Melvonnar, I suspect you don't even like the woman anymore. Once you address that issue, and answer yourself honestly, you'll be in a better position to decide what to do. We've only heard your side of the story, and only YOU can decide what you really owe her. It sounds like you're in a tough spot, and I'm sorry to hear that. Making a decision that you think will make you happy may leave you feeling guilty and just as unhappy as before.

I guess that I am lucky if I say lets go camping, before I can change my shoes she has the MH packed and ready to go and is sitting in the passenger seat.

One of my favorite quotes, from either Dear Abby or Ann Landers years ago, is, "What's worse than being single? Wishing you were single."

Being married isn't better than being single, and being single isn't better than being married. What's good about one state is bad about the other, but there are tradeoffs with either.

I'm really happy for those who are happily married or even contentedly married and I have sympathy for those who are unhappily married.

I refuse to answer under the grounds that anything I say will incriminate me, and or "She Who Must be Obeyed" knows where I tie my goat.

Congrats on the 52 years! We are only working on 41. But I'm like you, I often ask myself what did I do to deserve this?

Thumbs up

It took me 4 tries but I got a good one now. Sets up the CG reservations, Loads the MoHo, helps set up when we get there, helps unload the Harley and never complains. Always wants to go and adventure. She is up for anything. She calls me "Adventure Bill" and wants to do it full time. She is also beautiful and kind hearted and takes good care of me. Don't get much better than this

the OP question reminds me an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond" Ray told Deborah to they were leave at 7PM "AIS" she asked AIS, yes "A$$ in Seat" AIS or not the car was leaving at 7.

On another note we celebrated our 36th anniversary yesterday, I hope for another 36, i don't want to train another one in..... jk :-)

Everyone is different. Marriage is for some people, not others. I love my husband, we're married 17 years, 4 kids, and we don't argue that often. When we do, it's not even that bad. I like him as a person, he's funny, he's smart, and we have many similar likes and dislikes. We also agree on our parenting styles, which is very important (being united against the enemy) and he puts up with me and my attitude, at times.

That being said, if, God Forbid, anything were to happen to him...I'm NEVER doing this again.
