TGP Ep.46  Marriage Lite, Parking Peeves and Great Date Movies

Announcing Our Winner:  Congratulations to Kerry T. from Massachusetts.  She is the winner of 2 tickets to the North Shore Music Theatre’s production of “The King and I” starring one Mr. Lorenzo Lamas.  Thanks to her and NSMT for their support!

The Meat:  A proposal is going before the Mexican legislature that will make marriage initially a 2 year contract.  With nearly half of all marriages in the developed world ending in divorce the contract will set specific guidelines for child custody and the dissolution of assets should the relationship end at the two year point.  Couples will have the option to re-up at the two year mark or just walk away.
Should marriage become no more than a gym membership commitment?  Is this forward thinking or just plain foolishness?  Join the conversation.

Ask the Guys:  This week we devote the entire segment to one great question.
Misa 17 asks what advice we can give as she approaches dating Corben age 30.  What?  Yeah that was our first reaction, but you’ll have to hear her letter to make up your own mind.

  1. Hi Guys,
    I’m Misa the 17 (almost 18) year old, who asked you Guys about (planning to date) Corbin who recently turned 30.
    It WAS a VERY long letter to you Guys, but I’m grateful to hear your honest opinions about this odd situation.
    I would like to discuss this issue further with you Guys, (perhaps over the phone) since I have few questions that and I would really appreciate some advise on, as well as few issues that have recently come up with my Ex. I’d also like to clarify a few things for you, it can get quite confusing. Since this is a tricky set-up I could really use your advise. Please let me know if this is at all possible for you Guys, it might be easier for me to explain over the phone, rather then by e-mail.
    Thank you for your open minded look at this, it has helped conform some thoughts I’d had, as well as opinions and questions I and my mother raised.
    I’m very grateful to you, and I would love to speak with you Guys further.

  2. Thanks for the response Misa. It was a long question, but you are without a doubt among the most thoughtful and articulate people we’ve been in touch with. We are all about good relationships, whether that’s dating relationships or the ones we have with our family and friends. It’s great to see how much you’ve thought through entering into this relationship both with Corbin and with your family, in particular your mother. More conversation would be fantastic.
