    When I said that playing the stock market was juvenile and irresponsible and then the stock I wouldn't let him buy went up twenty-six points,

    Wonderful poem on true love. It is the honesty with which we recognize our shortcomings as well as those of our partner and then do everything to have an harmonious relationship in life without regrets. Thanks. (Report)Reply
