I should have broken up years age, but with the kids it was not that easy. My 15 year old son has Aspergers and my girl is 11. Now that they are older its still not easy being a single mom but its do able.

It starts with the stories about motorcycle wrecks and finishes up with the realization of having to go to the morgue to identify - not a body - identify body *parts*. They probably got married before most of the stories.

I don't really think that's it. Everyone "knows" motorcycles are soooo dangerous since they're like 5 years old and they first point at one and say "cool!", then the parent goes berserk saying how they're too dangerous and never get near one lol.

Also, I've seen that it happens with cars and other hobbies too! I've seen a whole lot of ads for Mustangs and other cars saying that their wife won't let them keep it lol.

I've also heard people say their spouse won't let them continue some hobby they've had for years before they met.

I think basically, people just feel some kind of need to change the person they're with. No idea why, I think it's so stupid. If you want something else, go find something else!

But anyway!

Great that you're riding again Ottergirl!! And it's super cool that Knifemaker actually made a joke and not only were you not insulted by it, you actually liked it!! lol Awesome!
