Well I'm 2 years & 3 months younger than my OH & our IQ's are identical at 130, though my emotional IQ is probably higher than his

OH seems to be happy enough after 25 years together

Well we're doomed then!!
I'm 2 years older but am smarter...

[Well I think so anyway-I beat him at Trivial Pursuit last time we played and it was a NZ version from the 80's-how on earth am I going to know who sang the no.1 song in NZ in 1983??]

For my 4000th post I will ask:

- is there anyone out there who needs a few $$$s so that I can keep the "Not Divorced" title and still trade in my OH for a far younger and "brighter" model ?????

If you need to ask "why" then you are not suited for this "job"................

My Mrs is 10 years younger and very clever. We are happy after 10 years with no wobbles so I guess its true.

Act? They seem pretty harmless to me.

New Zealand First, if there was an NZ version of The Daily Mail they would support New Zealand First.

lunacrout is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Gentlemen, the secret to a happy marriage...

Well we're approximately the same age and been together for 34 years now - probably helps that he's in Spain & I'm in UK for much of the time

(Only joking OH - if you're reading this )
