Sad Married F___ers

    O'Rothlain Guest name is Nate, and I'm a SMF.
    I've been a member for going on 5 years now.
    Those fellas over at the SSF think they have problems..."Ooooh, I have too much time on my hands..." Quit your whinning and embrace that time...cherish that time...make love to that free time, because once you join my ranks it all goes out the window.
    I find my self saying the same sad things that our hero, Frank the Tank, used to say, "Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time."
    So, if you, are like me, and find your time being filled with waiting on your beloved (please give me an accurate Estimated Time of Departure for once) and then having to ensure her that she indeed does not look fat and/or hideous, please stand up and state your name.

  3. I agree with your sentiments on the fact that being single is actually not all that bad...I am also totally under the thumb but the thumb in question happens to like pubs, footy matches and rugby games just as much as me.

    You lucky *******!

    I guess we're the only two SMF's on here? Wow.
    I just can't stand to here single people whine about being single...
    You have to enjoy each phase of life as you're in it, and quit always looking ahead, because you'll be disapointed...the grass is not always's just bermuda.
  5. "You have to enjoy each phase of life as you're in it"

    Hats off, a motto for life I'd's human nature though isn't it. No girlfriend...blokes feel all lonely and insecure, get a girlfriend...bemoan not seeing your mates or getting to watch game or having to go shopping.

    I am really, really happy & content being a SMF but by the same token if I had have remained single I'd have certainly made do with filling my life with tonnes of footy, rugby, cricket and beer.
  6. I'm enagaged - does that mean I am a SEF and I can't talk in this thread?
  7. It's all much the are just an SMF with a big stressful ****-off party to organise.

    I second that one...
    You're just waiting in line at the guilatine...haha!
    Enjoy the wedding and remember to drink and's the last hoorah!
  9. As someone said to me on the eve of my wedding : Try not to stress too much in the build-up, it's a might go smoothly, their might be a few ball-ups...your guests won't be bothered, they are just there for you & your missus.

    During the planning just focus on what you and her want rather than what you think is expected of you.

    yeah...just enjoy the moment. Make it fun and enjoyable for the pair of you. Peole really don't care weather you serve beef or chicken, as long as they're being served beef or chicken (you know?).
  11. Except the ones who are there for the free food presumably?

    Yeha, i was gonna pounce on that.
    I've never been to a wedding for the bride or groom.
    It's always for the food.

    Even at my sisters wedding i was looking forward to the food.
    Coz we all know the church part is like rabid ferrets chewing at your testicles; the dancefloor is strictly off limits coz as billy connolly rightly points out, dancing is a form of foreplay...and my relatives (including my mum) are on the dancefloor; and of course the best man's speech who's jokes everyone seems to get...but me become terdious and coma-worthy.

    Weddings are a godawful day for the visitors and (probably) the bride and groom.
    The only ones who enjoy it are the sentimental idiots:
    Mother of the Bride
    Mother of the groom
    ...and some other teary females. <_<
  13. And here was me looking forward to my wedding...

    Howzit, my name`s Ziggy, and I`m also a SMF, going on 5 years now. In fact, the 5th anniversary is on the 1st of May, so I guess I have a romantic evening to plan.

    Seriously, being married ain`t all that bad- sure, I have to make the odd sacrifice like doing the fkn gardening, going to the odd chick-flick and listening to Michael Bolton, not to mention the Barney-yes Barney- DVD`s for the kids. But at least the uhm, uhm, uhm...

    Oh who am I kidding. I had a helluva lot more time for pub-crawling, actually participating in sport and just generally enjoying life while I was single. And of course, being a rugger bugger in SA guarantees that you might arrive at the pub without a partner, but you sure won`t leave without one.Really no need to complain about being single, in fact the most carefree time of your life is in your early 20`s, while you`re still single.

    With marriage comes the obvious sacrifices on your time. With a mortgage, comes the obvious sacrifices on your cash flow. But on the plus side, you do of course know what you`re getting yourself into. And I wouldn`t trade being married for all the pleasures of being single, sacrifices and all.

    You're a good man Ziggy...thanks for being honest.
    The time thing is what really kills me. F___ing single people complaining about too much time on their hands and boredom. All I'm saying is, enjoy it while it's there. I don't have kids yet, but my Lord, if the amount of free time dips in relationship to how it dipped from being single to getting hitched, I don't know how I'll have any personal enjoyment.
    Good luck with the Micahel Bolton listening...I feel for you...I'm stuck with Celine Dion and Mariah Carey...those two should just kill eachother.

    Time-wise, the 1st six months with the kids are just plain shite. The wife and I had an arrangement- as she`s more of a morning person and I`m more of a night-crawler, I took the late shift and she took the early shift. But after that it`s actually great. And you learn quickly to adapt wrt your social schedule- we don`t go out to the pubs very often anymore, but one can always do the whole entertaining and socialising thing at home, either organising a braai or going to friends. And to see your kid`s first steps, first word etc. is just plain awesome. Can`t wait for the little one`s 1st rugby game- should be in about 3 years.

    Ok, let me put the brakes on you martyrs, here.
    You're having a go at us single folk (who haven't moaned about time on our hands and boredom and so on...well not in the other topic anyway) and saying, "Oh you've got it easy, we've got wives who wear the trousers in our relationship and kids who are really demanding" etc etc.
    Now don't get me wrong, but unless you're from India or somewhere i'm guessing you weren't "arranged" into matrimony.

    The difference between you guys and us? You chose your life, we didn'tt. If we chose to be singly, by god we wouldn't complain about it.

    So what happened when you got married...did you vow to help your missus with some of her bitching and complaining and decide to offload it onto us single folk, shedding your bitter words and scathing criticisms?

    Bah! You got yourselves into this, so either get divorced or shut up.
  18. O'Rothlain

    O'Rothlain Guest must really be jealous of us!

    In all actuallity, we're having a go at the SSF page. The truth is we didn't choose mariage, we were just winners in relationship. I guess, that would make you SSFers the losers? Sorry, but you'll win out eventually. Every woman is looking for a life-long project.

    Ouch, mate!

    Harsh words. Winners, losers!

    I hope you guys didn't take offence, i was only kidding.

    But seriously:

    What the hell is that supposed to mean?

    What the hell is anything supposed to mean? I just like fighting, and making up s___.
