Dear Amanda:
I have been retired for 18 years now while my DW continues to work, ( she doesn't want to retire).  When we meet new folks and they ask what we do she tells them she is a Lawyer and I reply in am a "KEPT MAN".  She says I am incorrigible.  What does that mean?

Confused in Minnesota.

Gotta have a little fun you know.  I have also been know to introduce her as my "Present Wife".

I know, I have a death wish, but she's still laughing.

You should be OK unless she starts introducing you as her "Late Husband"

Dear Amanda,
Florida has wonderful weather and there is a lot of advantages to the hot weather and direct sun. First all you need is a pair of shorts, a t shirt and some sandals. Think of all the money you could save on clothes for your herd. No winter coats, no galoshes, no need for expensive hot chocolate to warm up with. With all that direct sun there is no need for using a dryer. Just put the clothes on and go run around outside. And besides that I live only 20 miles from Disney World. ;D
 The big advantage for you to be living in Florida is that you don't have all six kids trapped inside all day long in the winter.  8)

Well reading this thread was not only entertaining but I am amazed at Amanda's wit and YES she should have her own Dear Abby forum on this site. This thread was so much better than my Facebook feed this morning.

I think the key is to marry an Amanda! I was fortunate enough to marry Amanda and she is amazing!
My wife (Amanda) came into my life 4 years after a similar experience to you RVMommato6.
We met and I had a girlfriend. We went on a date it was clear she was a woman of honesty and integrity. I confessed I had a girlfriend and that is was not right to date her. She respected my honesty and we put it on hold.
Fast forward 1 year later I bump into her at the lake......I was single again and we started dating. 16 years later our kids are raised and out of the house. We are getting ready to hit the road, and continue to love each other (without kids, how is this gonna work).
I wonder what would have happened if we didn't get that year breather? What would have been if I choose to date 2 ladies at the same time? I don't think it would have turned out this way. Be patient and follow your gut....you are on the right track. Enjoy the ride, trust the process and keep posting. Its much better than the fake news that is out there.
Who am I to argue? Lol, she sounds great!

Dear Confused,
I'm sure her working is not just to get away, so don't let that creep into your head. It probably has nothing to do with that thing you do. Definitely don't let that weigh on you.
Incorrigible simply means you're good at taking care of things at home while she picks up over time and applies for a second job. It's a compliment.

Uh, okay. I think (or at least hope) I see what you did here. If he’s that gullible in the south we would say “ Well, bless his heart”.

I dont think they use porch lights there, the glow from the tons of aligators eyes do the job quite well, its like daylight at midnight lol  :)

I just can’t see eight folks living there. You might have to add a house onto your 5th wheel.  ;)

She and I live here and then her kids can live in her RV right across the street. ;D There is a trailer for rent right next door to me if we need more space.

Holy cow! One family taking up the whole park. As the kids get older and get married you can just buy more units in the park.

This is a large park. Must have 500 spaces here. I don't think we will fill it up.
