Here's yet another MASTERPIECE by Christopher in Oregon. Though he still doesn't have his own blog yet, he does share his thoughts on the Happy Bachelors forum. This is yet another masterpiece by my biking buddy, Christopher in Oregon...
I think I've mentioned a friend of mine in the past. His name is Tom. We've known each other since we were small children, but parted company when he got married the first time. His wife was a slut of the first order. She cheated on him, even hit on me, and the marriage ended after about ten years. Lost his house. One kid who has been brainwashed by the mother to hate him. Never talks to him.
Married again, second wife cheated on him with a sixteen-year-old, and again, the marriage ended and he lost another house. Two kids; reasonable relationship with both of them although the mother has tried to destroy that.
Ten years ago, he married a CPA he met when he was visiting relatives in Austria. He brought her here, certain that this devout Catholic from the old country would be more traditional. Nope. She cheated on him, and they divorced. Lost another house that he's renting back from the people he sold it to.
He now has three renters occupying the spare bedrooms in order to help pay the rent on what was once his own house.
This formerly robust fellow, who was always athletic, at only 49, is falling apart. The stress has given him severe ulcer problems. He can't eat. He is losing weight like I've never seen before. The stress of his ex-wives, and the problems with his children, are slowly wasting him away. One of his son's is about to marry a tramp, and it's killing my friend.
I warned him each time he got married to not do it. The first time we were nineteen, and each subsequent time I tried to reason with him. He quietly ignored me, and now he is paying the price.
This man's life is effectively ruined. His health is is deteriorating rapidly. Stress is killing him.
All because of women and his inability to see them for what they are and say "NO" to himself.
Such an insane price to pay, and what a vantage point to sit by and watch over a period of thirty years a friend being ruined by women.

So, what did we learn from this? Don't get married! The life (not to mention money) that you save may be your own! Until next time...
