I think I might be a little allergic to this one, but it is a great antidote for anyone who happened to see Hannah Montana fucking Beetlejuice.

I have seen it a few times and I cry everytime. I first heard in on NPR's storycore. We should all be so luck to have partnership like theirs. I love hearing good stories about the good in people and how important their relationship means.

One story was a friendship with a womans ex husband and her second husband. The wife had passed away. #1 admitted being a jerk during their marriage. They divorced and she remarried. One holiday she invited #1 to dinner. Of course both men were apprehensive. They ended up really hitting it off and becoming friends. #1 told about how important the relationship with rhe xw and #2 was to him and how seeing how their relationshkp worked made him strive to be a better person. Then #2 was saying great of a friend #1 was to him during his time of grief.

Now I dont mean to take away from the beautiful song that Fred wrote to his wife. It is off the charts a rare authentic song. I need a weekly does of first person stories of kindness and humanity.

Had a bit of a discussion in the Betrayed Men's thread regarding this, after we got our allergies under control.

At first glance, this may seem depressing to some that he managed to have a marriage so good, while the rest of us... not so much. His song does say he wants to do the good times all over again. Here are a couple of thoughts I posted there.

As for Fred, I have no idea what life was really like for him, probably had a lot of crap times too, what with getting married as a young man in 1940 and all. Global warfare on an industrial scale kinda puts a damper on pleasant home life I imagine.

I suppose one of the differences is that for earlier generations, they accepted that parts of life would suck, and would persevere through them to enjoy the better times. An attitude I am afraid got lost with Dr. Spock and such, or maybe the modern attention span isn't long enough to stay focused on what is important through the periods that do suck.

I am happy for him that he can look back on his life that way, but I don't envy him, he is also at a stage where he knows he can never have what he lost again.

I suppose I am strange, but I kinda identify with the philosophy that the saddest thing that can happen is to achieve all of your dreams.

As for Fred himself, he seems like a good guy to me. I`d buy him a beer if I could be sure it wouldn`t kill him.
