RE: time to vent! Singles vs. Couples...

Donna: In regards to just being able to walk out of a 20 year
relationship...ummmm, in most states, there is a common law marriage
provision that after so many years of establishing a common household,
states that in the eyes of the state, you are married and therefore
should you split up, you need a legal divorce...with all the
legal/financial ramifications involved in such. Most states I believe it
is seven years.

Boy, have I stirred up a can of worms here :)<br><br>Dakota, just for
the record... John and I do talk and most times know<br>what the other
is thinking. He had some serious surgery and was on pain<br>killers at
the time. Strong ones! Lucky he knew his name at the time. He<br>has
since been weaning himself off of them, although the doctors
don't<br>want him to yet. He had no business out of the house, let alone
doing<br>yard work. Luck he didn't rip it all back open.<br><br>In his
altered state, he remembered that I was talking about pulling
out<br>some loosestrife before it flowered. He just forgot which plant
was<br>which and decided to help me. I just got way too upset over the
whole<br>incident and flew off the handle. Most of my yard is all native
(weeds)<br>plants, so he is used to seeing them and know that they
belong here.<br><br>For those who are married and it is working out...
go for it! I had some<br>bad experiences prior to knowing John and now
choose to keep my<br>independence. Had I met John before my ex-husband,
things would probably<br>be different. We are more married than most
married couples, just not<br>legally. :) As a side note, since we both
know that either of us can<br>just walk out, makes you keep the
relationship alive, and not take the<br>other person for
