Commentary About A YouTube Video

A few days ago I watched a video on YouTube of an old episode of Divorce Court that aired a few years ago.  The couple was married for five years and were getting a divorce.  I normally don't watch divorce shows because I do not believe in divorce, at least not in the casual way it is treated today.  Anyway, when the judge asked the wife her reason for wanting a divorce, the woman replied that her husband was "too nice."  The judge and the audience were baffled. 

The "complaints" this woman had about her husband to a normal person sounded ridiculous.  She stated that he would tell her he loved her at least twice a week and that he caused her to gain weight because he would cook full course meals for her not just during normal meal hours, but at 2:00 in the morning if she were hungry.  The more this woman spoke the more appalled everyone in the courtroom became.

Just Like Home

There was a guy that I was friends with and knew for many years.  After graduating from our separate colleges, we started to hang out as friends and nothing more.  At one point we went more than five years without communicating with one another, not because we had a falling out, but because were living our separate lives.  A few months ago, we reconnected and started to hang out again, but this time it was different because he confessed that he wanted to date me.  I wasn't interested in dating him and only saw him as a friend. 

We had a few little disagreements in the past, but this time we were really having arguments. One night before him and I met up I noticed that mentally I was making a list of topics not to discuss or hope wouldn't come up through the course of our evening.  No hot button items that could quickly turn our nice evening into raised voices in public and result in me storming out of an establishment (which happened twice).
