    Meredith-- My deepest sympathies for your loss. I have no other words to express my sorrow.  I am glad that you were able to spend these last years together.  The memories you made and love you shared more »

    In response to Dread27's comment: While on the whole I would agree that things change and evolve constantly.  However, a marriage is still a marriage no matter the time frame in my estimation.  You co more »

    In response to JeepersCripes9's comment: Very true CB. I do think it most definitely started as a religious 'rite'. Where they came up with that in each cultural religion, who knows. The Mayan marriag more »

    First, for the sake of argument, you have to admit that "A marriage today in the US should still have at least something in common with a marriage in 300 BC in Turkey shouldn't it?" may be a faulty as more »

    well, my response to this one is that it is too simplistic to essentially say that fear--any fear--prevents us from living our lives. If I have abandonment issues, and as a result I never get close to more »

    I can understand fear based on what might happen being something that can keep you from enjoying life today.  But I still won't jump out of a plane with someone's handkerchief tied to my back. I would more »

    I think the intersting part of Alf's response--saying "needed"--was that Alf included a working definition of "needed" as it applied to her response--and note that Alf did that only after reading some more »

    RT:  I agree, there is no right or wrong. Clearly the answers being given on this thread are colored by how one interprets "need".  If you look at my first post, I based my opinion on the understandin more »

    Actually RT, I think Kar has answered the question. She has made it more than clear, at least to my reading of her responses, that given the sort of "basic existence" definition of "need" you put fort more »

    I do agree, Kar.  And I think that you have made it clear what your answer to the question is depending on the definition being used for "need". What you define as "need", is what I would call "desire more »

    I am not certain that there is a truly adequate way to re-shape the question. I was thinking something along the lines of: What would you prefer: to be with someone that wants to be with you or to be more »

  • Posted 02/21/2012 01:29:07 EST

    RT--I think you and Kar are arguing over the meaning of the word "need", more than any point about whether "needing" someone is, on its face, good or bad. Both "need" and "want" carry underlying meani more »

    Pats trailing 20-17 late 4th quarter.  Brady will lead them downfield, and find Gronkowski (who has sat most of the game due to his ankle) for the go ahead score. This will be Brady's only TD pass of more »

    Pats will be fine as long as the secondary can figure out how to defend the fade to the left corner of the end zone.  It's the play Eli uses every time. Beat us in the SB, beat us this year during the more »

    Look for a lot of ghost penalties and non-calls to keep this one close. Brady leads a late 4th quarter drive to give the Pats the lead, with time left for a possible Tebow moment. Whether the Pats D h more »
