After 12years with the same man, doesn't that give me SOME insight?

My brothers think I can't possibly understand how sh*t works in a "real" relationship because DH and I got together at 15 and have never been with any other people. Doesn't 12 YEARS give me a little insight? Sure I am not a dating professional but who doesn't know that when you and your significant other are doing nothing but fighting and calling each other some of the most despicable names ever, you two probably shouldn't be together.

What do you think, does my longevity with one man give me at least a little good advice, or because I have only been with one man what the f*ck do I know?

  • If you had been with your husband 12 MINUTES you'd know more than they apparently do.

    But remember, they're working from a severe disadvantage. Y Chromosome Defect. It's a terminal illness, you know.

  • Let me guess- their relationships haven't lasted 12 months?

  • IMO yes, that doesn't mean that they want to hear it.

  • Well, you appear to have some knowledge and understanding about how to build a lasting relationship. People who call their partners awful names and cuss each other out may have insight in how to build and destroy an unworkable relationship, so in that sense, you have very different skill sets. Maybe that's what your brothers meant. Personally, I'd rather have your talent.

  • I blame reality TV. They think that shit is normal! lol :p

    You're right- they're wrong- but like gdiamante said, they have a disadvantage. LOL ;p
