I have 2 male sugar gliders. They are actually brothers but one is older than the other (not from same litter). I have had the older one for almost 2 months and just got the younger one 3 days ago. They are fighting all the time! Is this going to settle down or will I have to get them neutered?

No, it most likely will not "settle down" and it will not be something that they "grow out of", intact males are notorious for fighting. I have ever heard several stories where it got so out of control where it resulted in the death of one or both Sugar Gliders. Your best bet is to neuter both of the males and then SLOWLY try to reintroduce them. Some Sugar Gliders won't get along, but the chances are that if they are young enough, neutered and the introduction is slow, it will be successful. Separate them for now until they are neutered then try to reintroduce them. It may not turn out to be successful, so just be prepared.

Ok. So my next question is can a single sugar glider live alone and be happy? I got the 2nd one as a "pal" because I felt badly for the single one. Because I can't afford to neuter both of them, I was thinking of giving the other one back. Can he be happy living alone?

OR, what if I just got one of them neutered? Would that work?

A lot of people would definitely disagree with me. However, I do believe that a Sugar Glider can live happily on its own, provided that it gets an immense amount of hands-on interaction. I have found it to be the case, however, that even if two intact males are in the same room they will attempt to attack each other through the cage bars...

I would try just getting the one neutered and seeing if that helps, it should. Often, having only one male neutered will affect the overall temperament. If it doesn't for whatever reason, and you have to give up one I'd be more than willing to help you out and take it in. I'm located in southern Florida (Boca Raton), you haven't stated where you are located so I do not know if that'd be of any help. I have a Neutered Male / Female Pair that will be ready for purchase between July 30th and August 13th, I'm asking $400 which includes the neutering procedure.

Thanks.

For cheaters, it's a good time to be alive because cheating has never been easier. Several large hookup
websites function solely as discreet services for extramarital dating, and they do so without shame. They
even tutor you on how not to get caught.

To make matters even more favorable, divorce has lost its social stigma. Cheating didn't cause that -- not
directly at least -- but as a fact it favors the cheaters. Furthermore, in the spirit of equality and the
E.R.A. movement, cheating is no longer a largely male endeavor; in fact, women have been hard at work closing
that statistical gap since the 1960s.

Getting caught isn't such a big deal anymore either. Granted, in Michigan adultery is technically still on
the books as first-degree criminal sexual conduct, a felony punishable by up to life in prison, while in some
Middle Eastern countries (namely Iran) the same crime can result in being stoned to death. However, these are
the exceptions, not the rules. In truth, unless you're in politics or the clergy, the worst punishment
awaiting most buy wow gold cheaters is not criminal but moral. And if
you're cheating, morals aren't a big priority to begin with.
On that bright note, we present 2 things you didn't know about cheating.
Ovulation is a hell of a time for a woman. She feels sexier. She may dress more provocatively -- in tighter
clothes or fewer clothes -- than at another time of the month. In an evolutionary scheme this makes good
sense:
 world of warcraft gold  In an effort to propagate the
species, she's at her most fertile and flirtatious at the very same time. But shouldn't this instinct shut
down when the woman is in a relationship?
  Of course not; her genetic code has no idea she's in a relationship, has no idea what that wedding ring
means. In fact, results from a University of New Mexico study published in the esteemed Proceedings of the
Royal Society suggest a strong link between ovulation (i.e., female fertility) and a heightened interest in
men other than her spouse.
