The M3 Players

While we travel through the worlds of parenting, psychology, jobs, marriage, divorce, relationships and parenting psychology, some characters appear to illustrate the scenarios presented in the posts. They are also characters who frequently appear in MAD posts, in the SEP and other society posts.

You know and interact with many, if not all, of these people. They will be presented in a way to keep the M3 Readers from concluding these scenarios are gender-specific or relationship-specific.

The main design is you are able to put yourself into the roles to see how they play and affect the way you think and act. Role-playing is encouraged at M3.
