Caught Cheating – The Houston Astros lose its manager and their general manager. The Boston Red Sox fire its manager all because MLB discovered that they were cheating…stealing signs with video monitoring devices. Now, we’ll have trouble getting someone to call who will admit they have cheated. (Maybe not.) But we all have caught someone cheating…and it does NOT have to be relationship-based. When I was in high school, a bunch of the boys would get together occasionally to play $.25 poker. This kid Jim Noziska was cleaning up. We then discovered he hid extra cards between his legs and the chair. I caught him reaching down for a card and exclaimed that he was cheating. He denied it…we actually pushed him over…and several cards spilled out onto the floor. We were all shocked.

  • When did you catch someone cheating? What was the outcome? Did they get caught. Jim, from the story above, lived in shame that summer but we forgave him. Never played cards with him again but forgave him.

Oprah on Marriage – She said in a recent article about she and Stedman’s relationship: “For years, there were hundreds of tabloid stories, weekly, on whether we would marry. In 1993, the moment after I said yes to his proposal, I had doubts,” she confessed. “I realized I didn’t actually want a marriage. I wanted to be asked. I wanted to know he felt I was worthy of being his missus, but I didn’t want the sacrifices, the compromises, the day-in-day-out commitment required to make a marriage work. My life with the show was my priority, and we both knew it.” They’ve been together since 1986, I believe, and still have yet to tie the knot.

  • Why will you never get married?
  • What is it about marriage that completely turns you off?

Open Marriage – (Dude, early 30’s) “I’ll admit, while my wife and I are not swingers, we have had our fair share of “company” in the bedroom. Like any swinging couple will tell you, if you’re going take part in that type of lifestyle there has to be rules. Ours were: 1. No kissing. 2. No meeting up with the other person without one another 3. And either person had full veto power on any possible mates. As far as I know, we’ve held strong to those rules. Last night, though, she mentioned that maybe she’d like to have an open marriage. So, all those rules would go out the window…we both could sleep with whomever, whenever…so long as we ended up together at the end of the night. This kind of makes me believe she is already seeing someone. She denies that…Second to that, I believe that she has someone that she really wants to sleep with…WITHOUT me. Has anyone listening tried the open marriage? Does it actually work?

  • Threesomes gone bad…tell us what happened.
  • Any successful open marriages out there? Please explain how you get past the jealousy of an open marriage…I would go crazy thinking that my wife was getting pounded by Thor’s hammer…
