    I would have thought he would have made the decision in the 10 years since he started this thread.

    You never know, he could be the procrastinating type.

    I thought I killed this thread over ten years ago at post# 163! Oh well, here is my update:

    10 years later and my older son is in college, my younger son is a PITA teenager and my wife still doesn't like that I'm in a band. :p

    Dump her , If music is that important to you and she doesn't care then she is looking to change you into what she wants you to be .
    Trust me it won't get better after your married. You don't want to add to your debt with child support and alimony do you

    if she says she loves you, and she knows how much you love doing this band, and yet she is forcing you to quit, then that is seriously messed up right there. a loved one should never do that. you should tell her that she needs to accept who you are and respect what you love to do, instead of forcing you to quit. is there an ultimatum? is it a: "its me or the band" situation going on here? if not, I would tell her - look, I'm sticking with the band, and that's it. period. if she has a problem, then she will have to find a way to deal with it. if she is giving you a - its me or the band - decision to you, then tell her she probably doesn't love you after all, because that's something no one should ever do to someone they love.

    When it's no longer fun, quit. Oh, and get rid of the girlfriend.

    When the singer/guitarist can’t remember the chord progression under your solo on Touch of Grey, so every melodic phrase you attempt sounds like ****.

    Quit the girl. Seriously. Ask her to quit her book club or whatever she does.

    How much does her hair and nails cost every month? Maybe she could stop those things she enjoys. Just sayin.
