why buy the cow

Yeah.  I just changed a shitty diaper, made breakfast and did a pile of dishes. Next it's off to talk about stuff and re-organize a closet.  But it is her birthday.  I usually don't have to re-organize closets.

Gotta run.  Need to break up a (wooden) knife fight between a 2 year old and a 5 year old.  

Lockie just sighed.

Perhaps this little short story will ease your pain Clint:

A man and a woman who had never met before, but were both married to other people, found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a Trans-continental train.

   

 Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room, they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly.....

       

 He in the upper bunk and she in the lower.

     

  At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying,

'Ma'am, I'm sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket? I'm awfully cold.

       

 I have a better idea,' she replied . 'Just for tonight, let 's pretend that we're married.'

         

 'Wow! That's a great idea!' he exclaimed.

     

 'Good ,' she replied. 'Get your own friggin' blanket.'

         

 After a moment of silence, he farted.

     

 The End

Once you put a down payment on the cow with the intent to buy, if you don't follow-through with the purchase, the cow leaves.

Not all of them. Some keep hanging around the feed pen while they go dry.

While you're mulling that over you might want to cease and desist from any cow references when speaking about your bride.  It will only make your quietly desperate journey longer and more desperate. And don't fool yourself, there is no such thing as free milk.  

Good advice above.

And further, you need to spend less time with the Portly Pollack and more time with smarter people.  One of the most important pieces of advice you can take from older guys is that you need to learn when to speak, and when to shut up.  Calling your fiance  a cow is one of those times when you'd be better served by shutting up.

As Ol' Abe said, "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt."

Yeah marriage really affects my upland wanderings.  :p

I love my wife, without her in my life it would be a mere shell of what it is today.

Find the right woman for a life partner, love her hard, and hang on tight.

It doesn't get any better.

Tis a big decision and if you have significant doubts going it - you better get it settled sooner than later.

Have you considered renting versus owning? There is a strong financial argument to consider.

For instance:
