So, I met with an old friend tonight, who is getting married very soon, and seems to have a little case of cold feet. He then explained to me how the woman he is going to marry is the perfect woman for him, in every aspect except for in the bowling alley. He seems to think it is impossible to find the perfect combination. Hot steamy bowling games and a best friend. I understand that bowling can get boring after years and years, but before the marriage? I feel kinda bad for him. What is more important in a relationship? The hot bowling, or the deep rooted stuff? I want both!!!

If you can get both, take it. As for which is more important...well...they're both important so it's really going to depend on the people. If you have a great bowling game together, but not the deep stuff it isn't going to last. If you've got the deep stuff a lot of times you can teach each other to bowl better (or at least more to your liking).

Plus in my admittedly limited experience, it's not the time together that makes bowling happen less often, it's kids. When it's just the two of you you can make crazy plans, stay up late, go out spontaneously, and bowl whenever the mood strikes you. After kids you have to plan a lot more and sleep is more precious because if you stay up late to bowl you don't know for sure the rest of the night will go uninterrupted and daytime bowling is a lot trickier.

What Peebs said. I think quite often a great bowling team is a symptom of a deep-rooted connection. If you can be honest and open with your partner, if you know how to get through to them, and if you are able to compromise and balance the things you both want, then surely you can get it together and bowl amazingly, right?

I'm not saying that if you're bad in the bowling alley then you have a bad relationship... but sometimes it can be worth investigating the causes of not hitting a single pin [Razz]

I think they're both pretty important..

And bowling can be like everything else. Sometimes practice makes perfect [Wink]

If you think of the life together that you are making as a real building, then the bricks it is made of is your relationship. A good sex life isn't that relationship, but it is for most people a great part of the mortar that helps hold those bricks together, in good times and bad. So yes a relationship can hold together in the absence of good sex, but it is very difficult and gets increasingly so over time.

Your friend is almost certainly right to have cold feet, as it is almost certain that sooner or later one or both parties will go elsewhere for the sexual passion that the marriage lacks. I can't speak for others, but however moral, and proper I might wish to be, and though I have been married for over a quarter of a century, and have been faithful to my wife for that time, humiliatingly I have to admit that when the chips are down, I am, like every other man I have ever met, ruled by my dick. As Bruce says, "Everybody has a hungry heart".

I think both are important, but the deep stuff more so. You can teach your partner to bowl better, and I've been in a few relationships like that, where I had to learn to bowl better. I think there's an old quote about that, "You have to have a bed of friendship first. The other stuff fades."

Personally, that's my approach for relationships in general. I'd rather take an average looking partner with a great personality than a really beautiful partner lacking brains. But that's just me.

Then, there's this new saying that goes "it takes 10 000 hours of practice to be a genius"... Get practicing! [evil]
