I'm taking a chance this year, and last night I started some seeds for zinnias in those whatcha-call-ems that are made of peat and have a little hole punched in the middle. Zinnias tend to get powdery mildew, but the DH has been lucky at the blackjack table, and I can buy some spray.

And a few tithonias, which butterflies really like. Tithonias need support, though. The branches are brittle.

We are both immersed in our careers so it wouldn't be an ideal environment to bring up children in our household, purely our opinion mind... We did look at adopting and went so far down the line but decided against it in the end. A pity really because we can offer a loving family unit in a large house in a spectacularly beautiful area of Argyll.

That said, there are many gay couples, married, civil partnership or indeed living over the brush who take on adopted children. One couple near us are angels, taking on short term foster children. I can say this as nobody here will know her and she tells people anyway, but one of our medical students was born to lesbian parents through donor sperm and is busy writing a book in the little spare time she has, as an autobiography .Not of a model brilliant childhood but of a normal one with ups, downs, roughs and smooths. Her long term boyfriend, after living in care was adopted by a gay couple too. They reckon they both waited ages to tell each other they had gay parents, not knowing the other did too...

This is the real world where love describes your feelings and life, not the twisted minds of scared old men.

I do not go around classifying people as to whether I think they have "parental instincts" or not, or to what extent. And I am very open about what I think and have no agenda, thank you. We know that your agenda is to demote certain people who don't have children. Married gay couples in particular.

Allow me to draw you a picture Steve, you said, "And how do you know that everyone has "parental instincts" in the first place?". I did not say, or think, that everyone has parental instincts, but I am absolutely certain that a huge majority (most people)do.

I ain't never tried marriage yet, eh? I would not do it unlest I was sure I had found the one right girl, know'm sayin'? And there are a lot to choose from too, so it is, like, hard to decide which would be best for ME. There are, like, the girls at the donut shop...but most of them won't hardly talk to me. Then there are the girls who go in the Wet T-shrit contests at the Iron Horse. Some good ones there! Then there is Officer Dana. I would marry Officer Dana if things was set up right, but they are not. So far. What I gotta do is score a huge amount of cash so's I can impress her with what a great provider I am, eh? This means startin' a huge grow-op somewhere. But where? I can't, like, do it at our house. I have tried that before, and I got arrested. Six times in 8 years! So that is not the solushion. Then too, if I was to marry it would make the women of North Ontario very sad! There might be some suisides, eh? I would not want that. I gotta give this more thoguth.

Steve, your joke about shirts really made me laugh.

Today the DH and I went to a special showing of 'Singing in the Rain,' the musical with Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor. But they removed the orchestral soundtrack and substituted our symphony orchestra. It was enjoyable, but I did wish my seat was not in the second row - it was all a little too powerful.   

Seeing it on the big screen made me realize how expressive Debbie could be without lapsing into hamminess.

Mostly I went for the DH's sake, because he loves to watch dancing.

OK, the spirit of the thread.

Mrs Musket looked on indulgently this lunchtime whilst I had a try out (by appointment) of the Apple Watch at the store at Meadowhall. She pre ordered and bought me one on the opening morning.

She can't understand the attraction but knew it would make me rather happy.

Can't wait to get delivery...

I then drove us to our old local pub as we were near where we used to live and offered to drive as she drank with old friends, then when we got home I made a lasagne from scratch (pasta mangle still has novelty value) and I just put it in the oven a few mins ago.

Later, we will cuddle up with choccies and watch Indian Bloody Summer,as I tell her of course I enjoy watching it. (Just opened a nice 2002 Rioja so mellowing by the minute.)

Some swine cancelled the rest of the Top Gear series so nothing else to bloody watch I suppose.

That's love, as they say.

I came in late night last from fishing and picked up some souvlaki and baklava to surprise my love with from her favorite Greek restaurant. When I got home she had made me risi and bisi from my favorite veggie cookbook, though she had never done it before and even added a mushroom medley which made it very special. We've been together almost 12 years, are not married, have separate finances and residences but spend every night together when we're both in town. Takes all kinds.
She is the most moral person I know and being married would not add or detract from that. What a silly notion.

Absolutely. Tolerance means that you think that couples having children or not is entirely their own choice, free from moral hectoring from people with odd notions. Intolerance means imposing your archaic and narrow-minded opinions on people when it's none of your business.

Many people who marry don't want children. Mrs Musket and I being an example. I have two grand lads, and more recently a daughter in law and a wonderful granddaughter from my first marriage. But my marriage is about us. Not children and having them wouldn't make it any better or worse.

Many people have children who don't bother with marriage. Marriage and children are mutually exclusive for many people.

If you want children you don't need to be married and if you are married you don't need to be biologically capable.

Why is this insistence on children part of this thread? Irrelevant.

I am not talking about battered partners sticking it out, but normal arguments and problems that at one time most people worked through, but more often now lead to a parting of the ways......esp , if someone else more desirable comes along.   But I am not advocating interference, just expressing an opinion.

No poison no agenda, just facts. Of course there are those who need some verification of commitment to one another, but I have never felt the need of that and I do not believe it works or is beneficial especially if the religious aspect is missing.

Outsiders setting down rules as to what constitutes or should constitute partnerships/marriages is every bit as nonsensical as the old practices of enforced marriage - it is no business of anybody's other than the couple (or however many) concerned - who gives anybody the right to decide of the details of partnerships - especially not the State or the Church.
It is of little surprise that one of the advocates of outside interference is a practicing homophobe.
"at these times it's easy to walk away"
Sure it is - an abused wife should hang on in there and continue to get battered "for the sake of the family" - that was the advice handed out regularly by the Church up to the point it began to lose its influence - dangerous up to the point of being lethal.
Marriage is what it says on the label "the tie that binds" - if you're into bondage, fine.

Megan. When you piss off, will you take Akenaton with you?

This thread is about doing nice things for each other. Marriage works nicely. So does cohabiting and even one-night stands if nice things include Gimp masks and a feather.

The children distraction on this thread is just that. You don't have to be married to enjoy bringing up children. You don't need to get biologically capable either. Sadly, there have always been many children needing a place to grow up in a loving family environment. Couples who are married or otherwise who may not for a variety of reasons have children of their own or indeed don't want any can still do nice things for each other. The longer you grow older together the more these nice things become appreciated and hit the right spot.

Every marriage has "tough times", at these times it's easy to walk away, but personal responsibility towards ones family should take precedent.....in almost every case the problems are overcome and the children are the balm that heals.

Children need to see reality, that their parents are human, but love and security are there for them whenever it is required.
Marriage takes us beyond self interest......that is the major reason why redefinition is dangerous and harmful to society.

Talking of the opening post, BTW, I think it was about people who do things for each other without being asked. It is not marriage that brings this about but a closeness and instinctive knowledge of what the other wants or needs. I read the point much more as this is one of the things that helps marriages, or any long term relationship, to work rather than it being a state of affairs that can only happen in wedlock. I am sure leeneia did not intend it to be a diatribe against modern values. Far from it.

Marriage can be very "nice" indeed. Most of the people round here, think it is "nice".

If you don't want comments on marriage, why put the word in the thread title.....I know what was intended by the OP, but most people who have responded seem to think comments on the institution of marriage and how it works were being encouraged?
