    I'm sure he does, as do you. I had ample reason to froth at the mouth about my ex. I'm not going to go into them. I'll just say I returned to my passion for photography after the break-up of my dysfunctional relationship. One of the many reasons it was a very good thing for me.

    Unlike Sirius, you don't bring it up your ex every time there is a thread here in which folks mention their relationship difficulties.

    Facinating... I hadn't thought about that one, but you are correct!

    How about "reverse mysogeny"? I hate that just as much as I hate the term "reverse discrimination". To me it is all "discrimination" whether white against 'people of color', or 'people of color' against white, or white against white, or 'poeple of colr against people of color, or men against women, or women against men, or Americans against Brits...

    Reminds me of 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'. Directly translated from Swedish the title of the book/movie is 'Men Who Hate Women'.

    Do you hide your cameras from your wife?

She didn't apologize to me but one time in the entire nineteen years I knew her and that was after we divorced. She was the same with our small child who lived with me after the divorce. Whoever controls the universe had pity on me and our young son and gave me the perfect excuse to divorce her. Still bitter after fifteen years of freedom? Yes. Happy to be rid of her? Yes... Oh good God YESSS!! Now that I'm alone I have the freedom to do whatever I can and whenever I like. I'm a boring man with very simple tastes and decent moral character. However, I'm not the quiet meek sort I was when I was first married. That's the one thing my ex gave me... plenty of pinned-up anger to not put up with any BS from anyone. Am I lonely? Sometimes, yes. Would I rather be in an abusive relationship? No. So... I can be bitter if I so choose and so can Sirius.
    I thought for one second you were talking about my ex.

    Things got so bad she would only let me out the house of an evening on a Monday and Friday (yes really). This changed after a while to a Tuesday and a Thursday because she didn't realise everyone else went out on a Friday to unwind etc . . .

    My cat (who I had before we met) was forced to live outside, even in winter.

    I was the only earner (well paid), yet was given pocket money and no access to the bank account.

    The final straw was being woken at 6:30am on a Sunday morning, having worked 7 day weeks for at least 2 months. I'll never forget the psychotic look in her eyes and I'll never forget the bucket of icy cold water hurled (with bucket) in my direction. My crime? I had put the frying pan in the top basket of the dishwasher instead of the bottom.

    The divorce was 12 years ago and whilst I'm over it, the mental scars never fully dissapear.

    Last I heard, she'd met a bloke called Keith. Apologies to any Keiths out there.

    Well, be honest, how many times did she tell you that the frying pan goes on the bottom?

    You should have thrown it back... everyone knows that frying pans shouldn't be washed in an automatic dishwasher!

    Sorry Guys & Gals. Forgetting my manners there. Thanks for the welcome. I love a forum with a good 'off topic' section. Oh, and some film stuff as well.

    My ex loved giving me guidelines. She probably 'pounded' me with the frying pan rule slightly less than the 'off to bed with no supper' clause.

    To be fair to the crazy bitch, sorry lady, she had been an army wife for 16 years beforehand and only knew army life. Her husband left her for another women when he had to start living with her full time. Oh and she had a thyroid problem. Steer clear of women with thyroid problems who choose not to medicate.

    Good grief, where do you men find these crazy women? Must be a Northern thing. Might I suggest a trip to the deep South to meet your next significant other? I have never been around women who would behave and treat their husband/boyfriend in such ways. That is awful! I'm sure there are deep phsychological issues surrounding their behavior, but we (women in the South) tend to handle things in a different manner. Don't get me wrong; when treated incorrectly, we will set your car on fire; but give us respect and love and you've never been treated so well in all your life! Southern boys so love their mamas ... and women down here tend to base husband skills on how well a man treats his Mother.

    Ooh, sounds like a dream come true. A women that 'only' sets light to your car when she's mad. I thought they only existed in fairy tales. Fancy dinner?
