Why do men lie? Why don't women listen?
You're right, when I was trying to explain to my husband I probably wasn't direct - certainly not direct enough - not because I was trying to be difficult but because what I was trying to say was hurtful and I hate hurting anyone I was trying not to be cruel... but by trying not to be hurtful and cruel I ended up hurting him more... horrible irony...
I do agree that wiki is good but can't agree that its not biased... we're all biased in that we're influenced and affected by our own experiences... but its good to read lots of different biased views because then you see things from different sides, so you may understand them better...
As for my partner and his ex telling me things I want to hear... frankly after 3 years I really don't want to hear any more about it at all...
I can now see that my 'unawareness' was out of a false sense of security (although if you don't feel secure in your own marriage, with the person you love and trust the most, and who you believe feels the same, well...??) and complacency on my part. Of course I was comfortable. We'd been together 23 years.
