If the evidence of being together long enough to become engaged isn't enough for your fiancé to ignore an astrologer, then she is pretty much plain ignorant.
She's right you know. True astrologers don't just tell you that your marriage is going to fail. My guess is that something else is on her mind, and a bit of negative news from the astrologer has become her excuse because she doesn't want to hurt him. If she loves him fully, his perks and his flaws, do you really think she would end it over the word of an astrologer?
There is no agreement among astrologers what they claim they can do. The famous French astrologer Élizabeth Teissier predicted that Dominique Strauss Kahn would have a great year. You know 2011 ... the year when he lost his job as director of the IMF, was arrested by the police and had to give up his presidential ambitions. I don't see much of a difference between failing to predict the fate of a presidential candidate and failing to predict the fate of a marriage.
That's just plain retarded. Why do people listen to that? What does the day you were born and where the stars are and all that shit have to do with how you manage your life.
I don't understand how the word retarded can be offensive unless someone said (and I hope they never do) "oh man your autistic brother is retarded." What can you do people seem to forget the various meanings of a word, in this case it means stupid or ridiculous. If it was the meaning you are being 'offended' for then it would translate to-"this situation is mentally inhibited..." which quite frankly doesn't make sense. You're not offended because you're offended, you're offended because society seems that word offensive. So stfu thank you good day.
Retarded was originally used to describe people with mental disabilities. The meaning then changed to mean incredibly stupid. That's what's offensive. It's like calling something gay; using the word to mean stupid. Then someone feels bad if they are gay because society has now deemed them as stupid.
73- First, retarded was not originally used to describe mentally handicapped people. Second, if you take something out of the context it's used in and feel bad about it, you probably are stupid. Plenty of people don't use words they way they should, and if you run around crying about it life is going to be really tough.
