Irreverentad's Relationship Advice Thread

Recommended Posts

I don't normally bother with valentines, but the other half wants to do something as she's never really been with someone at this time before, but she's not high maintenance so a brunch filled with pancakes, syrup, scrambled egg and bacon at the nice local cafe will do! ( such a simple set of foods but they do it so damned deliciously and we both love it) then go see a film afterwards. Although I suspect my wishes to see either Room or Spotlight may be vetoed due to distinct lack of appropriate spirit.

I'm in Germany but I sure hope the rest of you are at least making them wait until after Villa v Liverpool has finished.  Invite them along if they really want to spend the day with you.

Valentines Day - what a swiz!

Everything becomes more expensive for just one arbitrary day.

I don't bother personally, it's a load of bollocks. You have to be a chump to fall for it.

Bit of an update I've gone to stay at my mums for a few days I need space away from her

At the weekend so really went off things thrown at me saying all sorts of things about me it was as if it wasn't really her if that makes sense.

The final straw was when she called up her mum and stated saying that I was mentally abusing her I just can't look at her at the moment without feeling sad or angry so I've had to step away.

Now all I'm getting are texts to say she is sorry and that its my decision to end marriage or not putting it all on me

God sounds like my ex (although we were only engaged) she would be on the phone to her mum all the time and I would have her calling me. Get out of it if I was you you deserve happiness and this definitely does not sound like it. At end of the day does it matter who calls it off as long as you can both move on with your lives?

Has she always been this way or has it started since the pregnancy? I wouldn't be too quick to end a marriage on behavior that could be based on her being incredibly hormonal and possibly scared.

The FaceMan is wise. For some wimmin, getting pregnant can seriously feck with your hormones/head.

Everything?

You go out for a meal or a drink, and it should be the same price, surely?

If you're not religious, what's the difference between Valentine's Day and Xmas (other than the bank holiday). I'm speaking in terms of gift giving ...

Valentine's Day is made up by the card company, Christmas even if not religious still has a big meaning.

Not everywhere. For many establishments, if you're lucky enough to get a table, the price is the same as normal. Some places push a special Valentine's menu, but by no means all.

The card company? Which one?

Without the religious element, what is Xmas? A time of holiday, 'goodwill', generosity, loving and giving, sponsored by whom?

If you 'opt out' of Valentine's day, you could opt out of Xmas on the same grounds. They are both capitalist sponsored days/themes, designed to get us to spend money.

and love each other, obviously.

Christmas is a Christian holiday (although also celebrated by non christians as well) while Valentines is nothing but a couples day that is meaningless dont understand that bizarre comparison?
