Do you believe in the phrase "Love conquers all?"

Not really. I believe the phrase "Love is not enough" is far more accurate. Love is important, but it's really mutually exclusive when you start talking about it in terms of a relationship working. I've seen relationships last though the love is gone (think 2 people who stay together for the kids) while other relationships fall apart even though both people love each other very much.

Ask me anything

What do you think of FormSpring? I see a lot of people using it now and was wondering if you get crazy, off the wall (read as inappropriate & offensive) questions?

I always say that if I could gain any superhero power it would be invisibility. I love knowing what people say/think when they're most comfortable. It's unfortunate, but anonymity provides the greatest level of comfort. I like it.

Having said that, I haven't had any inappropriate or offensive questions asked as of yet... we'll see how I feel about it in that case, but more than likely I'll look at it as part of the game you play when you allow people to ask anonymous questions.

I sooooo agree with you on this one, Ashley. "Love conquers all" is one of those cliches that I dislike because it's not true. Love is a great motivator to hang in there with someone through the hard times, but it can't magically keep a relationship together without active participation from the two people involved. I've heard people use this statement to justify staying in hurtful and dysfunctional relationships...because "love conquers all". I prefer "Love and good relationship skills conquers all.".
