I don't think i'd write off my marriage over who gets the remote. Can't you try getting another TV for the bedroom. Heck we're not rich and we have 5 TVs in our house.

the tv isn't the problem. their attitude towards me is just a symptom of the lack of respect. 28 years of disrespect is enough.

Re: Family Guy and Domestic Violence... Not Funny?

perhaps i should have, hind sight is 20/20 as i am sure you are aware. but i was stuck to the idea that marriage is a "til death do you part" thing, and i tried very hard to fix him. then when i got over that, i decided to only stick around until the last child was finished with high school. now i've decided he is old enough, i'm not waiting until fucking august.

Re: Family Guy and Domestic Violence... Not Funny?

"It's not satire any more - it's too close to real life"!?!? But that's exactly what satire is meant to be. Here's a dictionary entry of Satire: ... in which human folly and vice are hold up to scorn, derision, or ridicule. It's not like Family Guy has ever been that politically correct anyway. I don't think true fans of the show will be that shocked. If it's funny, then it's funny. Simples!

Not sure what the writer was going for, a coupla beatings would've been enough to make us hate the 'bad boyfriend' character and set up the 'let's kill this a-hole' plot... but the entire episode was pretty sparse on entertainment and was more like something you'd see on the LIFETIME channel.

Very true any woman stupid enough to stay with an abusive asshole shouldn't whine about a cartoon.
