Appreciation

One friend of mine has been divorced for several years now. Her husband is very charismatic and friendly, too friendly. And a liar, been that way since birth most likely. He's very good at it. He shines around people, so that you are easily taken in by him. Once you start to see his seedy side, there's no unseeing it. He is remarried to a psycho. He's about to go to jail for contempt of court, I think it's called- he owes my friend many months of child support. But he can make people believe his lies so easily....

Another friend of mine has a husband mixed up with some pretty nefarious people, and has picked up some pretty nasty habits along the way. They are separated, but he barely helps her out. She brings home a little over 700 bucks a month! He just got out of jail for stealing and will probably have a pretty hefty penalty for it. Got a girlfriend he parades around town in a short skirt. He used to a nice guy, but drugs have taken hold of him. He's only a few years younger than me, but he should still know better. If you're still getting high and making shitty choices in your 30's someone needs to beat your ass. Especially if your choices hurt your family and kids.

What is it with men in this area? Am I the only one with a decent husband?

More importantly, what can I do to show my dear husband how much I appreciate that he's not a total bastard?

I think alot of it has to do with the fact that we're so *koff* spoilt *koff* well off that some adults never need to grow up.

As far as the hubby goes, I'm sure you'll find a way...

Yep, some men (and women) are just morons. Those two DO sound like they need a beating. As for showing your hubby...well, I'm sure if you asked him, something with lubrication or you on your knees might be suggested :) but it's still nice just to tell them, too. They like hearing it as much as we do.
Nice to have a normal hubby, ain't it?
