  • Absolutely not! If anything he is better than the "standards" I had wanted in a husband.

  • Not currently, but I was engaged prior to my dh and I, at the last minute, realized I had. I have now realized that I would rather be alone than settle.

  • No, I didn't, but I think that far too many women do. It's almost like they decide that any man is better than no man. That is surely a myth. There are lots worse things than being a single woman, one of which is being married to the wrong man.

  • No,I have bettered myself,can't get better ,than a husband that works everyday to provide for his family,puts his family first,I have two beautiful daughters,The oldest is 20 ,is an LPN ,finishing up her R.N ,my other one graduates this spring and will be attending college in the fall to persue a career in teaching.and I am going to be a grandma in sept.If it sounds like I am bragging,then I guess I am because I am proud.I grew up very poor,had no chance to go to school functions,college,so yeah My kids have had a life ,I could only dream of.

  • NO & YES! ive been married twice. 22 years with my first & my childrens father. He would be a no, even though we are divorced. I still feel that if his alcholism hadnt gotten the better of him & our marriage we'd still be very happy together. I re-married trying to find what i had in my first marrage...OMG! am i sorry! he would be a YES! What the hell was i thinking! Im trying to divorce him, & he wont go away. We dont talk or see each other, he has a new whoopie & parades her around proudly in our small town for everyone to see knowing hes married to me & wont sign the divorce papers. no children, no property, no reason to move on...so whats the deal? Sorry to go off!

  • I know this is going to sound crazy [at least a couple of my friends thought it was crazy] but when I was searching for someone to possibly date I had a list of all the qualities I wanted in a man. And everytime a guy would come up to me and try and "holla" at me; this list was going through my mind. And if I saw 1 thing that I didn't like about the guy I cut him off completely. You might say I was quite the bitch to boys lol. But then I met hubby and it was like a dream. He exceeded the expectations of my list!!! And I knew I could not let him get away. haha So I got what I wanted out of a man. God was watching out for me lol. So the answer to your question is Nope I don't feel stuck at all.
