Don't tell me, let me guess – the male player always loses, right?

Well, it's usually the male who's strayed.

Divorce instigation is roughly about 50/50, but way more men have already found "someone else" before they leave.

Reminds me of the line from "McClintock" given by John Wayne to Maureen O'Hara:

"Indian fighting is good training for our kind of conversations."

Moe tells Curly to "shave some ice" for the party.

Curly approaches the block of ice set in a tub on a table, places a cover around the ice, lathers up his shaving cup, and begins apply shaving cream to the block of ice.

Curly to the ice block: "So, are you married, or are you happy?"

Actually divorce stats show that over 70% of divorces are initiated by women. Since the "no fault divorce" gained legal acceptance, the most popular reason is "lack of satisfaction" not infidelity.

Hmmmm … I didn't find divorce much fun the first time I played it evil grin

Wasn't there a line like this in bridge on Remagen?
You ever been liberated?
I've been divorced 3 times, does that count?

A poem:
Happy wife = happy life
Cuz if momma ain't happy
Ain't nobody happy
And if that goes on long enough
You'll be unhappy with half your stuff

Korvessa -- that was a great quote from "A Bridge Too Far."

Col. Robert Stout: I'm Bobby Stout.
Lt. Colonel J.O.E. Vandeleur: Have you ever been liberated before?
Col. Robert Stout: I got divorced twice, does that count?
Lt. Colonel J.O.E. Vandeleur: That counts.

dBerczerk – that's the one

I have to agree with DontFearDaReaper. I too can now smile, after many years. But I'll pass on this particular game.

Played the real life game once, not the rpg or the collectible card game.
No need to play it again.

From Hot Shot! Part Deux:

Rufshaad: I can see you're no stranger to pain.

Col. Denton Walters: I've been married.

Rufshaad: Ah.

Col. Denton Walters: *Twice*.

Rufshaad: Oy!

I too, played this game in 1:1 scale. Did NOT enjoy!

OSchmidt Inactive Member12 Sep 2014 7:29 a.m. PST

Been done already.

Don't remember the name but in the 80's someone did this.

SWMBO is half Swedish and half Danish and a strong non-believer in divorce. I expect her to kill me in my sleep any time now …

They say, if you've never been divorced and want to know what it feels like, find someone you hate and buy her a house.

Clays Russians24 Sep 2014 7:00 a.m. PST

I played it about 15 years ago, I'd rather take my chances at Verdun than go thru that again……… Tuscaloosa, that was brilliant
