18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from Drinking Mates 4.2, which
I had used for years without any trouble. However, there are apparently
conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try
and run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.

To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other
applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9.

Successive versions of Girlfriend proved no better. A shareware program,
PartyGirl 2.1, which I tried, had many bugs and left a virus in my system,
forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.

Eventually, I tried to run Girlfriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same
time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other,
they caused severe damage to my hardware.

I then upgraded to Fiancée 1.0 only to discover that this product soon had
to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0. While Wife 1.0 tends to use up all my
available resources, it does come bundled with FreeS*xPlus and CleanHouse

Shortly after this upgrade, however, I found that Wife 1.0 could be very
unstable and costly to run. Any mistakes I made were automatically stored
within Wife 1.0¹s memory and could not be deleted.

They then resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them.

Wife 1.0 also has an automatic diary, explorer and email filter, and can,
without warning, launch TurboStrop and Whinge. These latter products have
no Help files, and I have to try to guess what the problem is.

Additional problems are that Wife 1.0 needs updating regularly, requiring
ShoeShop Browser for new attachments and HairstyleExpress which needs to be
reinstalled every other week. Wife 1.0 also spawns unwelcome child
processes that drain my resources.

These unfortunately conflict with some of the new games I wanted to try
out, warning me that they are an illegal operation. Also, when Wife 1.0
attaches itself to my hard drive, it often crashes.

Wife 1.0 also comes with a rather annoying pop-up called MotherInLaw, which
can¹t be turned off.

Recently I¹ve been tempted to install Mistress 2004, but there could be
problems. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife 1.0
detects Mistress 2004 it tends to delete all of your Money files before
uninstalling itself.

Any ideas?
