forever 2 by Bob-Rz forever 2 by Bob-Rz
before you pass judgement on this peice here, take a look at the origional variation. [link]

the observation here is not new. i seem to remember another comic with a similar phrase being used for a wedding vows. there was something more to it and that's why i made this. as i was working on it i got to thinking about what it had to say about both chairacters involved. i desided to make this duplicate of it and make a little change just to see how much the over all tone and meaning would change. and i thought about what that change says about today's society and the expectations for gender.

I'm really liking your typed explanations behind each drawing. (and yes, good call on the changing of which of the two people gets the speech balloon in this particular pair of drawings. I'm reluctant to even ask how many of your viewers went ballistic upon the male-speaks version who were utterly pleased with the female-speaks version. Oy.)

Atleast he added the 'until I get bored' part-honesty is a great start for a relationship!

I faved both because it's true. Pathetic when it happens to you during basic training though...

Hmm... interesting.
When I read this I didn't notice it was the guy saying it. I just figured one person was saying it and it didn't matter who.

Wow. I've been theorizing about women being sex symbols and men representing money, but these 2 comics kinda make it obvious. With this reassurance, I can actually start materializing this idea into artwork =D thanks.

Oh. Awesome comics by the way.

You know....there's a loophole in all wedding vows....

Listen and think on them. It's amazing what they're really saying.

First I laughed, then was filled with murderous rage, and then I laughed even harder.
Art that can do that deserves a :+fav:. Kudos.

FUCKING LOL.
Appologies for swearing, but that's all I can summarise this with. For some reason I found this ten fold funnier than the first. Maybe it's because of what i'm bringing to the image?
Either way haha glad people think like this in actuality :D

Ah yes, another image that sums up my last relationship! I'm fairly sure that if my girlfriend had been 100% honest with me she would have said something like this from the off.

I bet it seems like I am emotionally dumping in your gallery, huh.

I'm actually engaged to a very wonderful man, that doesn't mean I can't notice certain trends in a general population ;)
