You can probably vote once from each browser on each device you use.

Finding an ethical way to deal with pain, fear, disappointment etc..is part of the experience of becoming a stronger person...one who is driven by compassion instead of compulsion...ie I have a legitimate reason to be stressed out right now...however, my response to it will determine how others percieve me, and myself.

I just voted too. I hope ya'll can get your shinola together if you win, because helping people recover from a marriage is more, much more serious than what some of your members have done to hurt people in the past.

Peace~


I thank God for all the times he saved my life, for putting all the people in my path who helped save it, and all the other people I met along the way.

Summerbreeze,

In late October, Intuit employees will select from the current field of 20, 4 finalists. In November, open voting for those 4 finalists will take place and the winner will get a professionally produced commercial to air during the Super Bowl.

If you click on the <Learn More> button at the top of the page, you can see how the contest is structured.

I've voted almost every day.

I think his intervention strategy to end an affair is by far the most sensible and humane and carries a higher likelihood for success than anything else I have read.

There are lightyears of difference between coming together in love to tell the affairing spouse how the affair is impacting the family and, in some cases, friends, offering support and acceptance, and telling everyone you know, everyone the affair partner knows, and the workplace. I don't see how anyone could experience that as anything but extremely hostile.

I'm still waiting for that link to a credible thread where nuclear exposure worked. I suspect I will be waiting for a very, very long time.

LG,

Glad you and other folks are voting. It would be nice to see a commercial that promotes marriage for a change.

When I first read Joe's intervention process, I found it to be in line with what I saw as the point of exposure. It takes things to the next logical step, IMO. It brings together family and friends who are in support of the marriage and want to see it thrive.

It is from this group that support will be needed. That support will be required to end the affair, cope with it for the uninvolved partner and work through the crap that will follow. It probably works well when a single message of "fix the marriage" is present throughout the group of supporters.

I gotta say... When I contacted this group after day number 8917, and told my story, I had a hard time getting a price for their services quoted. Why? They wanted to make sure we were able to afford them, so they invited us to disclose any financial need.
They were well worth full freight.

Must have ended today. I voted from the link last night...

I'll watch for round two and post it here if MH911 gets to continue.

I voted last night, too. I hope MH911 gets to round two. I noticed that the top 4 get a trip to NYC for the game and hotel room. That would be nice.
