<quoted text>HUH?? No- it does not set one up for another defeat.
Life is NOT about winning- it IS about doing the very best one can do and when one KNOWS within their hearts that they did do their very best, with that knowledge comes a wonderful peace of mind and serenity.
You are SO young and have SO much to learn and I imagine you will in time- but even at your very young age, you should realize and accept that all ANY of us can do is our very best- and if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
And if you don't think: "Okay, I did my best" and if that doesn't give you the peace of mind it should, then yes- you surely will set yourself up for nothing but defeat.
It is much more important to do your best and to know that you did your best than it is to win. But this is not something that can be taught- this is a life lesson that must be experienced first hand and I think in time it is a lesson you will learn as you gain more life experience.
Let's say I actually become a SEAL, and I go on a mission to rescue some hostages. They are going to be executed 1945 hours. My assault team and I insert at 1935 hours. Even if we bust our asses, we can get to them in 15 minutes. THAT is the best we can do. Well, it isn't going to cut it for the hostages' families. I'd have to explain to them that "I'm sorry, but we did our best." That doesn't cut it. We should've prepared for the op better. If the best one can do does NOT meet the expectations, then he or she is NOT good enough and MUST try harder. And if you're a SEAL (or member of any S.O.F. in general) you MUST EXCEED the expectations. If I'm a SEAL (or a Ranger, Green Beret, etc.), EVERY shot should be a kill, EVERY knife strike should be a kill, EVERY time I pick up a weapon should be a kill. Having said that, if I apply that mentality to EVERY aspect of my life, then I will SURELY be successful. I'll admit I did not academically live up to my full potential in high school, but that's going to change when I go to the Citadel in August. I WILL better EVERY aspect of my life. EVERY push-up WILL be perfect, EVERY term paper WILL be a 100, EVERY test will be a 100, EVERY shot fired at a range WILL be on target, etc. Now I understand that I won't always realize my goals, but being satisfied with my results will breed complacency. I MUST always aim to exceed the expectations.......... It's about building character.

Liam, I've observed that sort of thing several times over the years.
I will say though, that I never saw it happen when the man was not committed to the relationship and living with the woman.
But among committed couples, I've seen it several times.

Well, the way I see it, I can do one of two things. I can refuse to satisfy something with a response (which would probably be the more mature thing to do), or I can make an attempt to clear up any disparities. I meant "to correct" in that manner; not in an insulting or disrespectful manner. I don't want to fight with any of you on here. I've changed my position on the abortion issue (and I was sincere about doing so) and I'm hoping that we can start to get along. I want to make a genuine effort to get along with you and any of my other detractors on this thread.

You can't kill something that isn't alive.

He indicated, and we were referring to the fact, that his daughter and grandchild were physically abused by the father of the child. We weren't saying he should file a case against the boy because he got her pregnant. In the case of physical abuse, the police could have filed charges. Anyone could have reported the incident(s).

Superwilly is correct- if the raped minor refuses to press charges or testify, then there's not much a parent can do in those circumstances. Extremely rarely will the court compel such a witness to testify, it looks horrible on them to force a "child" to testify over what was seemingly consensual sex. Just saying...

I don't think it's true that the parents can't do anything. Even in the case of consensual sex between minors- and even if the boy involved is also a minor- the parents of the girl can have charges brought against the boy for statutory rape. And I don't think for charges such as that to stick the girl would be required to testify.

"The term "statutory rape" is used in some legal jurisdictions to refer to sexual activities in which one person is below the age required to legally consent to the behavior, it can also be charged with sexual behaviors with two under-aged minors."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statutory_rape

"Statutory rape is illegal sexual activity between two people when it would otherwise be legal if not for their age

In accordance with the FBI definition, statutory rape is characterized as non-forcible sexual intercourse with a person who is younger than the statutory age of consent. The actual ages for these laws vary greatly from state-to-state, as do the punishments for offenders."

http://www.sexlaws.org/what_is_statutory_rape

So if a male can be charged with statutory rape even if both parties were willing and it was consensual, I would think that in the case of forced rape of a minor, the parents could bring a suit against the rapist without the minor having to press charges.

Oh- a z/e/f is most definitely alive and can be killed. What a z/e/f is NOT is a LIFE and while a z/e/f within the body of a human is of course a human z/e/f, what a z/e/f is NOT is a PERSON and there is no PERSON and no LIFE until there is a live BIRTH.

But make no mistake that a z/e/f is most definitely alive, but so is sperm, mold, mildew and bacteria. But what none of these are is a LIFE.

And there is a difference between that which is ALIVE and that which is A LIFE just as there is a difference between that which is HUMAN and that which is a PERSON.

You think that is bad, trust me it is nothing compared to actually physically going through it. That's what I really meant by that.
