Same here. We've got close enough to equal incomes, separate bank accounts, and pay roughly half the bills each - and nobody cares what anybody spends their money on beyond that. Works like a charm.
Yep. We've been living together since 2003, and have never had one issue with doing it that way the entire time. We roughly split the bills and don't mind getting things for each other like groceries, or whatever. It works perfectly.

I never met her, but from the way he talked about her, I didn't want to.

Advantages of being single and living alone: when I want a new lens, i get a new lens (if i can afford it, that is).
Disadvantages: no one to keep me company while I'm out shooting in the cold/dark. Also I talk to myself a lot. And when I'm out of TP, there's no one but myself to blame.

It was there for a few hours, never moved, and nobody was inside operating it. Random fishing boats would pull up alongside it to look at it then leave. Makes you wonder if it got flooded out and wouldn't run.
Probably couldn't get the traction needed to back out of the water. The engine is high enough that it should be out of the water, and what is in the water is sealed well enough that there shouldn't be any problems.

The biggest risk I see is that such a heavy machine could sink into the mud. There was a guy out my way that took a track hoe like that out onto a marshy wetland to try and make a driveway to landlocked property with it. But the machine didn't have LGP tracks on it, and nearly sunk out of sight.

It was a rental machine.

The guy didn't purchase the extra insurance when he rented it.

Then the outfit he hired to get the machine out got their machine stuck.

So it cost him more than the rental to have a heavy crane rigging company come out and retrieve both machines.

And then he was on the hook for the clean up and repairs to the machine the rental company charged him.

Oh, and he didn't get the proper permits prior to disturbing wetlands, so the county, and state agencies were all over him too.

To each his own I guess.

Being able to go out and buy a new lens whenever I decide to doesn't do much to offset the loneliness in my mind.

Most of the time I get along really well with my wife.

As long as they don't move back in again I get along with my kids.

I always get along with my grandkids. The both keep me young and remind me that I am getting old.

And every now and then I still get a new lens.

And whenever we run out of TP, it is still my fault.

If we run out of TP ("PQ" in French), it won't be my fault because I do all the grocery shopping on Wednesdays, the day I'm off.

If there's no TP, it's because the girls have decorated their room again ...

That would not be good, if the water level in your photo is low tide.

Well, its' a play on words ... "Papier Q" which sounds just like "Papier Cul" (literally "Paper Arse") ...

That's why the Pentax Q was greeted with so many giggles in France ... a camera named "arse"

Oh, the crushing loneliness is still there (hence the talking to myself), but given that I recently went through a breakup, it took me four years to get back on the wagon after the last one and the fact that I'm kind of a terrible person to live with, I figure I'd better enjoy what I've got :P

I go through the loneliness because I have no choice. You can't make someone want to be with you or like you.

Have you tried breaking their legs and putting them in the attic?
