  1. Dear Bob,

    Tell the truth; then you won’t have to try to remember what you said before. this is what I learned myself, because I found that being honest is easier than to ly, that it is easier to tell the truth, even your own faults, as the first one, before others discover the truth…

    I got 2 important advices in my life:

    #1 was the advice of my mother
    #2 the advice of a patient girlfriend

    #1: Always try to have your own home, your own key, your own contract, so that you will never have leave because of divorce or similar situations

    #2: Stop complaining about your unhappy marriage. Change something. Then you can complain anew and I will listen again.

    Cheers, Connie

  2. Connie,
    A mother’s advice is usually pretty good; no one should leave home without it.
    Going along with your #1: Have plan B in place; plan A may not handle everything.
    Here’s another one: obey the laws; they are basically for your protection.
    Thanks for your comments.
