Much to my enjoyment, I’ve been watching season 3 episodes of House from about 5am this morning. Considering that this is approximately my 20th time watching this season, you’d think that I’d be bored dead, right? Not at all! House is actually on of my favourite shows ever. I find the medical stories and the diagnostics somewhat intriguing. Anyway, this post isnt about House.
Somewhere between Dr. House‘s usual sarcasm and cynicism, and watching the medical savant work medical magic, I picked up on a quote to ponder from a conversation on relationships between one of Dr. House’s supporting doctors and a patient’s wife. Read on…
Wife: “Marriages don’t fail because couples get bored. They fail because while they’re dating, people pretend to be the person they think their partner wants and then, there’s only so long you can keep that up.”
Dr.: “Maybe they are that person when they’re dating but then they change.”
Wife: “People thinking their partner will change, that’s another reason marriages fail. People don’t change, at least not in any way that really matters.”
So what do you think?…
I’ve been thinking about marriages and divorce all day...read more after the click
Check out my latest Twitter rant!:
Elin is reportedly asking for $780m in her divorce settlement from her soon to be Ex, Tiger Woods! Sad part is last year Forbes approximated Tiger’s worth at only $600m. So I sincerly doubt she’ll walk away with $780m upfront! But whatever she gets I hope it breaks celebrity divorce settlement records! She deserves every penny for the shame and embarrasment Tiger’s infidelity or “indiscretion” brought to her and her family!
But as I was later reminded by one of my followers: “Michael Jordan’s ex wife got $168 mil and they were married almost 20 yrs. it’ll be interesting to see what she does get.”
And if I remember clearly Jordan was only making about 2 times that amount so…the settlement in Elin and Tiger’s divorce ought to be very interesting!
That is all!
