I don't agree with that. I think that couples should be entering marriage with the tools to strengthen their relationship (like those provided in pre Cana or pre-marital counseling), not the tools to dissolve the union if it doesn't work.
To elaborate on my late night post, a big component of marriage is a business contract. You are joining two prior independent entities. Even with the greatest business plan in the world, it would be unwise to start a business partnership without spelling out contingencies should one party want out. I don't think anyone would consider that to be a bad thing. It is the smart thing to do. So why should one not consider that possibility when entering a marriage, especially when so many fail? Most divorces happen to people who "knew" they would be together forever. The best of intentions did not prevent their divorce. It is a possibility that should be taken into consideration when entering into the marriage agreement.

Let's take a poll on an issue that's already come up: she wants to rename my python (my actual ball python, get your mind out of the gutter) to "Sunshine," (his name is "Snuggles.") What are your thoughts?
Snuggles is an excellent name!

Good luck with the girl.

Sunshine is a stupid name. My old mutt used to be named "Sunny", that got changed first thing.

So she wants to change the name FROM Snuggles TO Sunshine? Nah... keep it Snuggles. And tell her that the first date is way too soon to be renaming pets.

Cool. Somebody in my class has a nose whistle going on. Not remotely annoying, no sir.

Hey Mimi, Toj, and PEllen: This morning's "Random Vinyl" was "Brand new key" by Melanie. Super fun to hear at 6:30 a.m.!
I was listening to that last night.:D

The other day I had a particular Lynyrd Skynyrd song going through my head all day and when I started the car it started playing on the radio. Coincidence? I think...probably yeah...I mean like some kind of mystic force was gonna play that song just for me? Pfffttt

I was just asking your opinions on which name you liked better. Looks like the "Snuggles" have it. I'll tell her she can name my "other" python Sunshine

I hit the ice hard this morning. I basically bounced off this guy. I went one way, my stick went the other, he didn't move. I am going to be in pain later on today.
You're serious? I thought you were pulling my leg about playing hockey lol, sorry!

I hope your leg is okay!

Yeah, I really do! Started a couple years ago, now I play 3-4 times a week. It's a blast, but I am not a formidable force against most of the people out there. It's a no checking league, but accidents happen.

Not my leg, it's just going to be my whole neck/spine area. Didn't hit my head, so that was good.

I've toyed with doing roller derby, and then this morning the woman DJ said she tried it and broke her leg in three places. Ouch.

I am liking the comments:

It makes me giggle a bit inside to see pictures of high school girls not wearing makeup for ONE DAY and posing with all these signs about inner beauty and then putting on the makeup the next day and going to class.

Inner beauty! Celebrate it 1/360th of the year!

I thought about doing that, too. We have a local team and they're always fundraising at the farmer's market or hockey games. Would NOT like to fall on my ass with no pads on.:-/

Discussion with some of my hockey girls:

"We really need a women's line of hockey equipment."

"Yeah, the pants never fit quite right, nor do the shoulder pads."

Then K chimes in with "Yeah, and the helmets shouldn't smudge your makeup." *crickets, then laughter*

"You're the only one wearing makeup, K." I thought she wore a lot of makeup to play, but then I hung out with her outside of hockey. She just wears a base layer for hockey.

I love it. I sent out a liked in request for recommendations(for those not on linked in, its where your professional contacts can write up a little testimonial to your greatness which is then visible to all who view your profile). One former co-worker emailed me back. Gave me his linkedin user id and password. Told me to write whatever I wanted.
