Men cant understand women because women are stupid. They really are not hard to understand and their brains are tiny.

Before my life or my marriage fell apart, the only thing I know is what I've heard especially from my own friends. The only thing I can do is feel sad because I knew the people who supposed to be married. Only 3 couples that I know who left their wives, ( the 3 women is my close friends). but they were in the military, so I guess I could use it even though the situation was different.

As this moment, those friends of mine are still in Hawaii, but they didn't remarry.
