First of all, can we say *facepalm*? :)

"And whether you like it or not, it IS always a black and white choice, depending on the couple."

Isn't that a bit of a contradiction? Either it's always a black & white choice, OR it depends on the couple, surely? :) I still think it's possible for couples to maintain successful careers in separate fields with no sacrifice on either side, although you're right insofaras it certainly does depend on the individuals involved. Wanting the same things in a relationship is crucial, whether that be both wanting one partner to remain at home, or both wanting to pursue careers.

"So, I guess all I was saying that while Paul was a horrible womanizing dog for cheating on Jane, I think Jane was just as responsible for the breakup, and she or he should have probably broken things off sooner, because there was no way that relationship was going to work, unless one of them drastically changed their goals. That was not about to happen on either end."

I do absolutely agree with you on this point; I just don't blame Jane, exactly. Applaud, more like!

"LOL, yup, I certainly can testify to it, though being apart from Ron is NOT what I would choose, if I were given the choice."

You & Ron are the couple I had in mind when I wrote that, as a matter of fact.

Well, at least you have the knowledge that I was holding the two of you up as an exemplary marriage. :)

Every time I respond to a rant, I consider the possibility that I'm going to be ripping into one of my, uh, homies. :) But I can't say that's ever really stopped me from voicing my opinion. I'd have said more or less than same thing if you'd posted this in your own journal, which I think you probably know.

"Erm, no. What I mean to say is, that every single couple out there faces a unique set of circumstances and decisions, BUT each person's goals as they apply to the relationship are quite black and white. If Ron and I had wanted different things in life we never would have gotten married. Black and white."

I think we're more or less on the same page, we're just expressing it differently. Quelle surprise :)

"Yup, (though I am still surprised by your lack of comment on my War post...Peladon not voicing her opinion? What is the world coming to???) and I have to do the same thing. Same with BeatleSecret. But I think at this point, we've established that we are mature enough to handle differing opinions and still like each other. ;)"

I'm still surprised by my lack of comment on your war post! I think it's a combination of desperately not wanting to offend you or shit all over the things you believe very passionately in, and knowing that if I were to talk about my perspective on the subject, it would be an epic comment :) Would you have any reservations if I were tackle this in my own journal? I almost feel I should, because a lot of people seemed to think I'd already done it in my America entry, so I might as well make a proper job of it!

I second the motion - after all, I'm ex-military.
