  • Wow, I didn't think of it as funny. So many moms on CM seem to be tormented about staying in a loveless marriage and ask what they should do. I thought such a quote would be helpful for them.

  • My thoughts are the quote is that love is what it is but it is terrible to commit yourself to someone for life if you do not love them.

  • I laugh because I stayed in a relationship for ten years and there was no love. I did it to do the right thing thats why I laughed.

  • pinkdragon36: That's the point. Did you really do the "right thing"? I guess with asking that we'd have to define "right thing".
