In the early 90s, singer Patty Smyth did one of her biggest hits which was a song about the dangers of loving somebody too much but the real clincher in terms of lyrics was the line ‘sometimes love just ain’t enough’.
When you heard the preposterous situation your bestie got you into, your immediately said ‘hell no!’ and it took almost a week for her to convince you to go. At first you were dead against it but when you realised that you have not been on date in almost two years and that the cobwebs on your ‘coochie’ has been gathering for close to three, you sighed and acquiesce. What is the worst that can happen right?
No one is perfect and so when it comes to bad behaviour neither gender is without sin yet still men get pelted with more stones as they are said to be dogs and do doggish things like cheat, be disrespectful, inconsiderate, or worse are abusers or dead beat dads.

They are all under thirty and all married. Two are Christians and one claims to be a reformed player who hung up his shoes when he found the right woman. All of these men are in relationships that are less than four years and admit that while they are generally happy, they do sometimes miss the excitement of ‘doing road’. They are nowhere near the seven year itch however being this young one wonders if they were actually prepared for the monotony of domesticity; if being married is all that it promised to be and if in hindsight they felt they should have waited a few more years before settling down.
