"Yeah,but the average gay union only lasts 18 months.Another reason not to have it called a marriage!" -BE
Actually, this is yet ANOTHER reason that we should have gay unions! Think about all the gay couples who DO stay together for years who deserve a justified union. I agree, for some reason gay relationships just do not last long and I can't figure out why. The handful of times I really made an effort at keeping a relationship going, it failed. I think it has something to do with the nature of my personality, very much absorbed in playing and listening to music, and the fact that I'm kind of quirky. LOL
Take my aunt for example, who is a lesbian. She's never dated much, but she has had several long term relationships. My entire childhood, and even up until my very early 20's, I thought that her lifelong "roomate" Drew was just that, a roomate! They were together at LEAST 10 years and I do know that they were friends in high school. My mom knew I was gay when I was 16, yet she didn't let me know about my gay aunt until I was 20! Weird huh?
Guess what else she didn't tell me? I'll start at the beginning. When I was 3, 4 years old, I had a kitty I loved named Mickey, who was an outside cat. Even though I was really young I can remember one day I was calling him outside all day, and he never came home. At the end of the day, my mother sat me down and told me "Honey, I'm sorry but Mickey ran away. Mickey still loves you but sometimes kitties need to be outside and on their own."
Fast-forward to my porch at our new house, when I'm 20-some years old. Me, my mom, and the neighbor were talking on the porch about our pet cats (my old neighbors back home were also cat lovers) and I told the story about how sad I was when my beloved kitty Mickey ran away.
My mother then started smiling. Then she started cracking up, and laughed so hard that she split the ass of her pants. It probably would have split anyways, because she has a huge, cellulite-laden ass. Just kidding. My mom's cute.
I said "Mom, what the fuck is so funny? My kitty ran away!"
"Oh my God honey. I never told you?"
"Told me what?"
"Well.....honey, um. Wow, um, your dad, it was an accident! He came home from work, and Mickey, well....your dad ran Mickey over!"
To be continued. I'm ditching out of this thread now that I'm not pissed. I got more to say though. BE, watch your ass 'cause I'm comin' back with a vengeance! LOL Just joshing. Say what you want, no hard feelings.
