Why this blog, why do I maintain it…why does anyone care?

I remember when the Troll King commented on my blog and gave me an encouraging word when I was just starting out. Thank you TK, your words mean the world to me. And many thanks to the Hawaiian Libertarian for adding me to his blogroll as well, thanks for giving me a chance, I appreciate it. I didn’t know why I was even starting a blog when there where so many already out there.

Now I do.

Why…because I was a meager Mangina who was schlubbing through this world looking for the key information to please women and came away with an ammo box full of blanks. The wrong information I can assure you but it didn’t matter, I continued trying anyway. Now, at 35 years old, I realize that I was asleep at the wheel during a critical phase of my life…but I’m still on the road driving.

As I read the Spearhead and other MRA sites, I begin to realize one very important thing; that even though I had my eyes closed, things could have been a whole world worse for me and I didn’t even comprehend what was even at stake. How did I navigate through this minefield like I had? Some would say that I’m still in the thick of things, and others would say that I’m raising children, which aren’t mine. Correct on both counts of course, and sure there is still time on the clock before things could go south, but even at this ‘young’ stage I’m at, I already have friends who haven’t been married as long who have seen their lives crash and burn in front of them or even have partners who are as willing as mine has been. Due to this ‘progressive’ society and female entitlement, their lives have turned out for the worst and they didn’t have any warning as they still lived in the past as far as their expectations where concerned.

Why am I writing this blog? Because I gambled and I came out with my head, others weren’t so lucky and I want to help all the young people out there just like me who do wish to get married, but have their heads filled with tripe in terms of how the world actually works. I personally believe that if you save even one person, then you save their whole world, cliché but this is what I believe. One person can indeed affect many people’s lives, I have learned this the hard way and I hope others don’t have to do the same.

I believe in marriage as an institution, but I also believe that nowadays, men should indeed avoid marriage or use adequate (and I mean heavy duty) due diligence in finding a worthy woman. I believe that when you marry and have kids that they are your prime responsibility. I’m using my own bias in this determination as I have had experience with young children before and adolescent lives are indeed are very heavy task to take care of. What’s the difference between a young woman on the right track and a teenaged mother? I can tell you through experience, not very much without the proper guidance.

I believe that young men are the backbone of this society and that there is a lack of good male role models in which to teach them right from wrong. Don’t ask me how I know this but male role models are essential to a young man growing up healthy and happy. Watch your child who is scared about their upcoming performance in a school play and then pay attention as they look into your eyes and then they calm down. I’m not joking when I say that!!

I believe that even though I’m not a Christian, that men should be the head of their households as they are born to lead, women are born to follow. Men are blessed with their pragmatic and logical natures and not swayed as easily by emotion as women tend to be. We men don’t recognize just how selfless we are in normal life as the media paints a very good picture of how horrible, useless, and tyrannical we are. I’ve begun to take the lead of my own household, funny how things are working better now that I have done so, and I’m just getting started.

I believe that there is a collapse of epic proportions coming and that men need to take advantage of this opportunity to teach our young men coming behind us about what it means to actually be a man as the current circumstances binds our hands. Speaking about the elites at this time can be dangerous, especially if you already have a family, but in time, we may be able to seize the moment and lead young men into becoming the leaders they where meant to be.

What I wish to do with this blog is assist the hopeless betas out there who where just like me, aimless yet wanting to share their lives with a worthy woman. As a man who wishes to get married, there are indeed rights we have, but as a betas, we don’t think we have any say in the matter much less any reason to even ask in the first place.


My aim now is to illuminate as much as I can in terms of how the world works to any young men who will listen. I will show my stepson what I know, but the main part there is how I treat his mother and how I take the lead. There are too many good men out there that haven’t the foggiest clue as to what the world will take from them and they are unwittingly lying down on train tracks as it comes to run them over and they haven’t the foggiest clue what is at stake.

No one taught me, but I’m unscathed for reasons I cannot relate here, what about the rest? Someone has to look out for them, as they haven’t a clue what is after them!!!

What Jeff told me about Radiation

Just read this on Grerp’s site and it really had my head turning. I had always known that divorce was hard on kids and family, but it had never been put in a way like this to me before. It had me thinking about my own past in terms of my childhood, my marriage and a philosophy that my old supervisor in my fulltime job had unknowingly instilled in me.

Eleven years ago my supervisor, Jeff, was telling me about radiation and how something so misunderstood could be used to benefit people. When I asked him about why they where using radiation in Thyroid Therapies he had told me about the risks vs. rewards in this case. Sure, dumping a large amount of Iodine-131 into a person’s body isn’t the sanest thing in the world, but when someone has Thyroid Cancer, the Iodine risk is deemed worth it to eliminate it. It’s a lesser of two evils sort of thing and I never forgot that advice. It made me consider the risks and rewards of various situations, which are available in this life, which must be, weighted as the circumstances merits it.

What does all of this have to do with Grerp and the 4th turning, just this, that at an earlier time in my life, I was looking to make the big leap to end my marriage as well.

I don’t like discussing the particulars, as my wife isn’t online to defend herself from anything I may say. Let’s just say that after 5 years together and one more being married; she was happier than a pig in poo while I was miserable and even my wife would agree with this statement. In 2008, we had just finished counseling which was informative to say the least and did give some hope as we went forward, but I still had my misgivings. I was deathly afraid that the issues which I had with our marriage wouldn’t be addressed and I would always get the short end of the stick for the remainder of my life.  It seemed my wife and her kids would benefit from my remaining in this situation but apparently at my expense. I even posted my situation on a message board I used to partake in so I could get fresh eyes on my situation, I was afraid that my perception would be marred by my personal bias and a choice this serious needed to be done in the most sober mindset possible.

So why didn’t I leave, why did I stay and tough it out?

Well, one very large reason was that I wasn’t sure I would be able to find a ‘better deal’ out there. I had read many a story of men and women ‘trading up’ only to find that their ‘one and only’ existed solely in their imaginations, and worse yet, that their previous beloveds where actually their real partners for life. I didn’t want to leave the frying pan and enter into the fire and when we are dealing with life choices, we have to understand one major thing. That there are no mulligans, no do-overs, we have one shot and we have to make it a good one. Life doesn’t follow our favorite fictional stories and I didn’t want to end up like some of those sad tales of woe who divorced too fast without thinking. My wife was willing to work on our issues, at the time it seemed that we just wouldn’t be able to get a breakthrough, yet was I willing to leave someone who was willing to put the effort in and try again?

The overarching reason however, was this; that even though my step kids aren’t biologically mine, I would be changing their worlds in one of the most drastic ways possible. They had no say in my choice, no voice, no option and yet their lives, their whole worlds would change in every possible way imaginable if I decided that I was going to leave and start my life anew. How would this affect them and their futures? What sort of lessons would this teach them as they continued on with their lives? Years ago when I was on a cheating website (not the issues my wife and I had, I was there for reasons relating to my parent's past), I ran into a Feminist who called herself Ironyrulz. She had said something that I will never forget about children and their parents. She had said that us parents are our children’s Gods.

Yes, you read that right. No offense to the big guy upstairs though.

That the world could be falling apart around them and so long as Daddy and Mommy are okay, then they are all right. However, the reverse of this is also true; that the world could be just fine, and if Mommy and Daddy are waging war, then they are suffering the worst for it.

Did this mean that I resigned myself to staying no matter how miserable I was?

No, and I don’t advocate that attitude of staying for the kids no matter what (although Grerp does make some very good points about staying on her blog). No, I decided that if I were going to leave, it would be on MY terms. That I would have to leave these kids with a clean conscience, and to do that I would have to know that I exhausted every possible chance to fix our marriage and that leaving was the ONLY choice which made sense. This is where Jeff’s example comes into play, that leaving my family would only make sense if by staying, the situation would become definitely worse for everyone involved. 

I decided that I would talk with my wife about my concerns and try again, I couldn’t leave thinking that there was a chance that I didn’t take or a solution that I didn’t try. I believe in Karma, and I didn’t want the Karma of leaving children to a broken home and a wife who was willing but maybe needed a little more time on my conscience. So, Mrs. Omni and I open some more dialogue and guess what happened? Things are better than ever and improving all the time. We have our ups and downs, and I don’t want you to think that I’m Super-Step or Heroic Hubby, not at all. Just a regular guy doing the best he can with what he knows and trying to learn more as time goes on.

What I think Grerp explains thoroughly is the lack of effort made by both men and women (more women though, Eat Pray Love anyone?)  in this day and age. That ‘happiness’ trumps everything and that marriage is supposed to resemble fiction, always sunny with no clouds or bumps in the road to make us grumble at any time. This is simply unrealistic, and I think causes much more damage to the institution as a whole and therefore society as well. My sister had said one thing once, which really had me thinking years ago before I even met my wife. She said “Too may people are looking at marriage as something they can take from as opposed to something they should put into.”

Wise words, which I wish more people in this day and age, saw the merit in.

Am I saying that people should be hooked up in a miserable marriage like oxen yoked to a cart. I must say that I disagree with that, but I will also say that if things are indeed miserable, before divorce is chosen, are the people involved willing to do EVERYTHING possible to fix the situation? And even before getting married, are the two people involved fully understanding the situation they are entering? I’m willing to bet that if more people where willing to explore every possible opportunity before pushing the red button that the amount of divorces we see in society would decrease.

Represent, repre-sent-sent

Anyone who has spent any sort of time on the Manosphere obviously realizes that Feminism and the wonderful benefits it gives to society is the Topic du Jour. We have seen the many negative issues, which Feminism creates, the denigration of fathers and vilification of men in society, the encouragement of false rape/domestic violence allegations while providing no protection to the men who could suffer the massive fallout of such heinous claims. The massive expansion of the rape definitions to further cow men into submission and the absolute stonewalling of men’s reproductive rights just to name a few topics. This has lead to more boys growing up delinquent and young girls becoming mothers far too young and needing more and more government support plus a moral degradation of society and a family court system biased against men and fathers. All the while, what do we here from Feminism?


Right…women have changed the social and political landscape and have more freedoms and rights than even the men they decry and yet they are still wailing for more freedom due to the evils of ‘the patriarchy”.  Needless to say, once you wake up from the matrix and realize the truth about the hate movement feminism actually is which will in some cases stoop to use spin and sometimes fabrications in order to achieve its goals. When people discuss these topics on the Manosphere, you will sometimes see Feminists pop up to ‘explain’ how they see things and to alleviate the obvious misconceptions of their order.

However, here is the thing they do not realize, they do a piss poor job of it.

Realize this; that as a Feminist, when these womyn step up to the plate to defend their ‘order’ they actually represent feminism wherever it is that they happen to go. Once you state that you are a hardcore feminist, then some will pay more attention to you to see whether the ‘hate filled’ manosphere is actually right or simply full of sh!t. The truth of the matter is; that most feminists actually show people that what they see in Feminism on a whole is actually true even on an individual level.

Yes there are many feminist shaming tactics that will get pulled out of the hat once their ‘special snowflake’ platform get’s crushed under the unruly and unyielding force of reality but understand that the situation goes further than this. Just take a look at Dalrocks Blog as he is currently mining Gold in terms of certain Feminist commenters running their Rationalization Hamsters on an Indy 500 type pace. I didn’t think that those teeny little guys could hang in there for that long, but hey, guess we learn something new everyday huh?

Gotta provide some quotes to give some examples for the sake of ease.

Womyn A;
"A resounding ditto here! My husband and I went thru a very rough patch about 12 years ago – the D word was being tossed around. My female friends (fellow career bitches) all urged me to hang in there, slow down, don’t make any drastic moves, look for the good in my spouse – all wise words. We “fixed” our problems and are pretty happy together these days!
At the time, there were a couple people in my circle that did let me know my husband wasn’t good enough; not enough formal education, money, or status. “You could do so much better!” I married a blue-collar guy – apparently I didn’t get the email on women’s hypergamy – we are all obsessed with money and titles.
Who were the naysayers? Not career bitches or girly girls; they were men."

Now this exchange can be found on this blog, and the one thing I will agree on is that nothing in this world is 100% one way or another. It would be foolish to expect that women act a certain way all of the time and that men also follow suit to the same extent and exceptions are sure to make themselves known…but why is it that only the feminists had this sort of experience which also happen to be the inverse of Dalrock’s point?

As Arsenio Hall used to say, something to make you go Hmmm?

Womyn B:
"I’m sorry, D. I just don’t see many RL examples of the stuff I hear about from MRAs on the net. Yes, men get hurt by divorce. No one is better off after a divorce, but MRAs do ignore that women can be hurt too."

I see, so here we have an ‘innocent’ statement about how this self-admitting feminist doesn’t seem to see the rampant misandry in the Western World. If these people where truly about equality, then when men and the worthy women who also point readily accessible examples out, wouldn’t it then be easier to notice them? Folks, yes when people are still ‘hooked up’ to the matrix, it can be easy to miss the obvious. However, if even after members of both genders use examples, and the issue still can’t be seen, what does that say about that person? I mean, possibly this womyn may not see the misandry, I mean, she could live in a cave or something, then again, I guess one could access the internet from a wired up crevasse in the Himalayas right?

Could it be that quite possibly, the reason that they don’t see the issues at hand is because they don’t WISH to?

These are just some of the examples and if you check through the comments, you will see inverse reality used extensively and exceptions applied to alleviate the humdrum common sense rules, which Dalrock and others will provide…that are also backed by statistics. Heck, you will even see comparisons by these womyn made between Game Blogs to the massive mainstream media in how they deliver the ‘trade up’ messages to men and women.  Consider it for a second, Citizen Renegade and In Mala Fide being compared to Eat Pray Love, which is part of Oprah’s book club and played by A-list actors and a huge budget.

If I ask my neighbor about EPL, there is a decent chance they’ve heard about it, but if I ask what they thought about Ferdinand Bardamu’s latest blog post, I’m sure they will have never heard of him, get the picture? I think it’s asinine to compare a website that you have to have prior knowledge of, get on your computer, navigate to through the web, and then read the contents ALL BY CHOICE compared to a crappy movie based on nothing but female hypergamous fantasy which will get forced into your living room depending on which channel you are watching multiple times a day, EVERYDAY.


D’s blog isn’t the only place where we can see these wonderful postulations being heaped upon the Manosphere, just that Dalrock inadvertently created a venue where one can see this phenomenon regularly. It may be a good idea to take a gander (as he makes some very good points regularly and you will be happy that you took the time to read) so you can watch this phenomenon unfold in front of you.

Now the biggest and most telling aspect of a feminist’s dubious nature is the defense of bad female behavior; this IMHO, is the most dangerous characteristic about the Rationalization Hamster. In this post on D’s blog, he pointed out the life course of a woman who divorced her husband and apparently her life didn’t turn out anywhere near as well as she had intended. Sure enough, here came the Fem’s defending her actions and insinuating that we don’t know enough about the situation to infer that she did so frivolously.

Womyn C;

"But Suzie isn’t in low-income housing because she got a divorce. She is in low-income housing because she dropped out of grad school and spent time in mental-health institutions.
And again, it still doesn’t follow that she would prefer to be with a man she left just to have a more comfortable house or have some companionship. Isn’t it a bit presumptuous to assume we know what is best for her? Surely only she can define that, no? Maybe she’s thinking, “As bad as things are, at least I am not with my ex-husband anymore!”
Look, I am quite sure there are plenty of people in the world who have regretted divorce or wished to return to their partners. But the idea that this is always or often the case seems unlikely. Usually people leave marriages because they REALLY don’t want to be married to that person any more. I am not saying that’s a good thing, but the idea that women who divorce will get their comeuppance some day is not necessarily true."

True, while we don’t know everything about her situation, there was a distinct lack of evidence proving that she wanted nothing more than to trade her hubby up for a better deal. Dalrock also went back to his wife, as this woman was her friend, for more information and wound up finding yet more evidence, which suggests frivolity was indeed a major factor in the decision-making. The illustrious Zed had a comment on another of D’s posts, which summed up my thoughts succinctly.

"To me, the most disturbing aspect of a whole lot of what I see being written these days is that it gives the impression that “being a good husband” just isn’t worth very much to women these days. A man seems to need Game even in marriage, and lives with the sword of Damocles hanging over his head if he goes off his Game.
I usually find the comments to articles like this much more disturbing than the articles themselves. If all these supposed “NAWALTS” really were “not like that”, I would expect them to be ripping into selfish women like this, telling her how stupid she was for frivolously divorcing a man she describes as a “great husband.” Instead, the majority of comments always seem to be of the “you go, grrl” variety." (Emphasis mine)

And that’s the point!! Where are the ‘responsible’ womyn stating that what this particular woman did was wrong? Wouldn’t the Feminists be the loudest voices decrying this sort of bad behavior from other women? Their fore-mothers fought so hard for this equality that they now enjoy and positioned them to be able to extract more rights when the need arises but to have a woman abuse it in a manner such as this makes ALL women look bad. Yet why do we have an overwhelming amount of NON-Feminists (Grerp, Susan Walsh, and Thag Jones just to name a few) being the ones who don’t approve much less attempt to defend such behavior?

When these Non-Feminists discuss the duties, which are important to children and family, you will also see Feminists discuss the importance of the mother’s happiness in these cases over everything else. Do I think that anyone needs to be unhappy in the course of a marriage? Heck no, but I also think that some of the current circumstances are rewarding a woman’s happiness at the expense of her family and when people like Dalrock point this out with evidence to back up his position, he gets an attempted snow job in return.

This is the deal, understand everyone, this is the same use of the Hamster which will Rationalize away a mother killing her husband and/or her children who seems very much innocent from all the evidence provided. These would be the people who would assume that if a woman acted in a manner such as this, then obviously there where extenuating circumstances which forced this woman to deviate from the acceptable norms, and therefore innocent of any negative repercussions right?

I think not.

The main issue, which seems to escape these ‘womyn’ is that instead of supplying counterpoints, which prove Feminism’s usefulness, they are proving several things;

1.      That women with responsibilities can and will abuse them yet suffer no negative repercussions
2.    That any such deviations from acceptable behavior will not only be accepted but encouraged
3.     That the very freedoms which women now enjoy may encroach on the rest of society, therefore causing untold harm, yet won’t be opposed so long as women continue to ‘benefit’ in the short term
4.    That these benefits will be protected by any means necessary whether it be the massaging of statistics, using exceptions or ignoring very prevalent facts

However, the biggest thing womyn don’t understand is this; that their positions prove that the Manosphere’s beliefs on Feminism is 100% founded and that men are right to protect themselves against this “egalitarian” movement and speak out about it.

The one thing, which really has me shaking my head, is that I find their perceptions almost insulting. That they believe people do not have eyes or intelligence of their own to look into the world and see that the Feminist perception is false or simply the exception to the overwhelming rules of life. Anyone with eyes, especially the ‘Matrix Survivors” can see the gaping holes in their positions, yet they continue on as if their platforms are airtight and by repeating their mantra continually will somehow bring about it’s reality.

Ladies, we live on the same planet, and we can see what’s really going on, just an FYI. The more you try to snow us, the more we see Feminism, and you for what you really are. You have no statistics to prove the benefits of Feminism and more importantly, no information of value to DISprove the very real and ubiquitous claims made against it. Feminists try to spin and make their case, but all one has to do is virtually look out their window to the world and see the manipulation for what it is, and as time marches on, it becomes easier to see the huge toll Feminism takes on society. You womyn are doing exactly the polar opposite of what it is you wish to achieve and in the words of Joe Public’s “Live and Learn”

“The only fool that you are foolin’ is the fool that is you.”

26 vs 35 ME!!!!

My Life;

I had posted this on the Spearhead once, but I want to revisit this in a little more detail now that I have a venue of my own. You see, allow me to venture back in time to when I was 26 years old.....

 So here I am, 26 years young, with an emergency fulltime job that I dropped into and a part-time job at a bar to help with the payments. In all honesty, I was making low 5 figures with my full time job, but I was making $360 each weekend at the bar. All in all, it wasn't too bad for an undiagnosed ADHD dude just flittering along in life with his parents.

However that was the deal, I was 26 years old and still living with my parents. Sure, at the bar I would catch some ladies giving me the eye, but where was I going to take them? Then the plan was set in motion; it was time for Omnipitron to get his own digs!!

I started buying things I needed, cutlery, plates, cooking pans and the like you name it. I did splurge and buy a ridiculously expensive cookware set (1800 CAD), but I wanted one that would last a good long time (still in use after 9 years too.)

I had to have a television, so I bought a 32-inch flat screen 'normal’ television, and a DVD home theatre with 6 speakers and a subwoofer. That purchase was roughly 1,000 CAD. I bought an entertainment center to house my electronics for roughly $200.

So, I needed some furniture, but I refused to go and buy brand new (now that the important stuff was purchased) because I, like most guys, just need something to function, Martha Stewart need not apply.

I spoke to a friend at the bar about my plans and lo and behold we could help each other out. She had a sectional couch that I could have for FREE so long as I took it out of her house. I did with my younger bro’s help, and there where bonuses, oh yes. A coffee table, and two chests of drawers also for the heavy duty price of free. From my friend I happened to grab a free table and chair set for my 'breakfast nook'. Ah, nothing better than free right?

Now I was in business.

So I move into my new digs with plenty of money to spare between my two jobs and with my tiny little Japanese Import, I was set. I didn't bother with cable as I watched movies or played games on my computer, and between my jobs, I didn't need too much anyway.

Now, here is where I want you to pay attention. I had met my soon to be wife actually 2 months before I moved out. We where only dating at the time so moving in with her was out of the question, however, soon I did. Before this happened, her washing machine broke, I replaced it (400 CAD).

I moved in with her and my furniture was disposed of or given away, we didn't need it.

We (meaning I) bought a new bedroom set and a new mattress, which of course isn't cheap ($800 CAD). As time went on, of course mostly I purchased a new couch and chair ($1,600 CAD).

As time went on my little Japanese car got far too small to cart the family around.  I also live in a relatively snowy area in Ontario so I made the choice to upgrade to a 4x4 pickup truck (do I need to state the price?).

We of course got married shortly after that, pretty standard affair, cost roughly $20,000 CAD.

As a Christmas gift, my wife got a surprise curio cabinet ($1000), which wasn't cheap. One of the kiddo's also got a new bedroom set, ($1,400) I went halfsies on that.

I was diagnosed with ADHD about 3 years ago, and sometimes, life could get hard. The company I work for has undergone some drastic (and sorely needed) culture changes since I started working there 11 years ago. Many a day I came home and simply wanted to hang it up due to the ever-increasing demands. I stick it out simply because that not many other options will pay the equivalent.

Then, Mrs. Omni and I realized the "Canadian" Dream, we bought a place of our own (well, we will once we buy it from the bank) but it sorely needed some renovations...thank heavens we bought a truck. It did save my ass many a time.

Soon, as the kids started to sprout, I realized that the cab of my truck was going to be too small for the future, what was my choice, of course, another truck with a bigger cab (more expensive than the last, okay?).

So, what is the point of all of this? Simple, at this stage of my life, I'm a 35 year old, married ‘homeowner’ with two dependants. What would have happened if I chose to remain single in terms of my financial outlay?

Would I have stayed in my apartment?


 In fact, I was thinking about DOWNgrading from my one bedroom into a bachelor, as there was more space than I really needed.

Would I have kept my tiny Japanese run-about?

Yup, much cheaper than two large V-8 trucks no?

Would I have bought all that furniture?

Nope, I already had some of it for years beforehand and I would have had no reason to get rid of it unless they broke. Most men are like this.

Would I have quit my 'demanding' job?    

Yup, I could work in a warehouse and still have paid my nominal bills.
Think about the taxes that a 35 year old me pays as opposed to 26 year old me? Property taxes, even sales taxes on things like gas, maintenance, and building supplies for our house. I make close to mid 5 figures now that I have been with the company so long, would that happen if I had decided to work in a warehouse or mass market retail? How much tax could Stephen Harper expect from me then? Didn't pay those in the apartment I can tell you that!!

I had to get my brakes done, a transmission flush, and an oil change on the import and it cost me $800, for my first truck all of that PLUS the diff fluid (it has two since it's a 4x4) and transfer case cost almost $2000.

Think about the money, which has been (and will continue) to be dumped into the economy simply due to deciding to enter into a monogamous relationship with a woman.

No, I'm not made of money nor is it some way to brag about what I've got, and I'll be the first to say that what I've done is nowhere near special, many men and even a few women make similar choices every single day.

The amazing thing I wish to point out is just how little a man can live off of when he decides to be single. Ladies, you have no idea of just how much a man takes on when he decides that you are ‘worth it’.

At the end of the day, with so many men choosing to remain single for longer, or chooses to remain single for the rest of his life, the contribution to the economy that is lost is phenomenal, whether women see this or not is irrelevant. It’s in everyone’s best interest for a man to marry; it supports the economy in ways that many don’t even fathom which maintains that thing we call civilization!!

Maybe…just maybe Hanna Rosin is wrong? Too bad many will realize this far too late. Keep this in mind men when women say that men contribute nothing to coupledom. Seriously, we contribute much more than we realize!!!!
