do you ever just feel very different from everyone else?

And most of the time I am 100% fine with it. There are others that I wonder if I am too different.
I don't care if my husband has female friends, he works in a female dominated field and you are usually friendly with your coworkers.
I don't snoop, he is allowed a private life as am I.
I don't care if I am pretty or not, it has nothing to do with who I am.
I never once contemplated being a sahm, I didn't really know anyone who did that (I do now, but few and far between) & I am glad I didn't. (Dh lost his good paying job and our roles were reversed after #2)

I didn't think his child support (he has 4older kids) should have been lowered because we had kids, I figured I could handle our kids on my salary. I never wanted my presence to change his kids lives, anymore than it had to.

I married a man who had 4 kids, with 3 women, when I had none & at the time had no plans for kids.

I could go on...

What's so different? We all have our idiosincracities...(sp).

 As long as you are okay with things, it doesn't really matter.  People get judgmental just to make themselves feel better.

I agree, but I guess there are times (not just on CM) that I wonder about always being labeled the weird one, on the hippie friend.
If I am missing (the best word for it I can think of) something.

True, but even close friends/family call me the weird one, or the hippie. I don't know, most of the time I am good. But there are times..

Yeah. But I am almost the opposite of you.
I agree about the child support only. Lol.
But I feel different.

Oh I am old. Old enough to have embraced a lot of the weird. But it bothers me sometimes...
