I haven't said anything personal about "that guy" so how can you even make that statement. Did I mention a MARRIAGE COUNSELOR told me that? I think it's good advice.

Exactly! This doesn't mean my husband doesn't do anything without me, or vice versa, it means we realize we're both human, and so we don't put ourselves in compromising positions.

How old is that photo? The last one I saw of her, she looked scrawny, pale and unhealthy.

Absolutely not. What I'm saying is that anyone, under the right (wrong) circumstances would cheat. The key is to prevent those circumstances from happening.

No, to me adult=leader. I just prefer (in my personal relationships) for the man to be the leader.

I can't say 100% for sure that The Boyfriend would never cheat on me. I don't honestly believe he would, but you still get that little nervous twinge when he does jobs like (literally) a photo shoot with Holly Madison. I'm 20 years older than her and she has 10 pounds of silicone that I definitely don't have. But when I think about it, I don't really think he would. If he did, I don't think I'd want to know. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.
As far as the weight thing goes, I've had bbody image issues for a couple of decades now, due in part to (now ex-) husbands with completely unrealistic expectations about me while staying morbidly obese themselves. Kind of messes up your head, and I was never attracted to lean guys because I figured they'd REALLY be on me about my weight, even though I never was very heavy anyway.
About a year after The Boyfriend and I started going out, I put on almost 20 pounds of what he calls "happy fat". Didn't make me too happy, and I figured it wasn't what he signed up for. He acted like it didn't bother him at all. I started eating Primal, and he was very supportive, noticing when I lost even a few pounds and calling me Skinny Butt. I gotta tell you, that's way more motivating than when Ex #1 told me I needed to lose weight, get lipo, get a boob job, a nose job and dye my hair brown.
Madonna? Last time I saw her she looked too skinny. No meat on her and it was like you could see the bones in her arms sticking out.
Christina Aguillara? She usually looks pretty good, but in that pic her face is just very... bloated. Sad because she's usually gorgeous and a good example of a woman having a few curves.
Has anyone else notice a resurgance in the number of women with the 1940s pinup look? I wonder if it's a rejection of the super skinny model ideal, and I would imagine most guys would be thrilled with it.

Most of those women are pretty skinny. The trick is the TV you watch them with. You're so accustomed to those proportions that you think they are normal, but they are skinny in person. Sure, some have larger proportions (bigger breasts or butts for their body), but they are all skinny.

I couldn't agree more. Marriage is not natural to the psyche of the majority of humans.

You can desire to not be a parent (due to money, time, profession, w/e), but your instinct can still drive you to make a baby. We are basically not in control of our instincts. They are genetically given to us by our parents, and we can only sharpen or weaken them.
Also evolutionarily, evidence shows that often parenthood could have been seperate from the act of making the babies. In many tribes, all the adults in the tribe are considered to be "parents". Before the concept of marriage, people slept around a lot and knowing the true father would have been impossible.
