wart, what the he!! are you doing!!!!!! ix-nay on the istening-lay!

don't give 'em our playbook. geez, you must be a patriots fan.


i hear what you're saying about hearing the same ol' crap day after day, but that's part of being a good hubby. the delicate balance is not about when to pay attention, but when to give your opinion versus when to just listen. the hard part is the former, not the latter, but it's forunate that those are rare occasions.
when the planets align and advice is requested, you want to be supportive even when they're wrong about some issue. but you can't go against her or you just add to the frustrations, so diplomacy is the key in those very few situations.

often diplomacy means just asking dumb questions to help her talk it out.


(how'd i do, ladies? huh? )

ok, matt. i've told this before here, but it bears repeating.

on the morning of their 20th wedding anniversary, a woman woke up to find her hubby missing from bed. she went downstairs and saw him sobbing on the couch.
when she asked him what was wrong, he said "honey, do you remember the day we were married, when your dad held a shotgun to my back and said i had to marry you or go to jail?"

the woman replied "well, yes, of course i do, honey".

the man whimpered back "well, i would have gotten out today..."

BWAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA

one more.

a guy went to the cemetery to buy a burial plot for himself and his family. as he was walking through the graveyard to get to the office, he noticed a man crying, pounding on a tombstone repeating "why did you die, you bastid!! why did you die, you bastid!!!!"

after the guy came out, the sobbing man was still repeating his plea, so the guy went over to comfort him. when asked about the deceased, the man said that he never new him, but once again repeated "why did you die, you bastid."

the guy, now very confused, asked the crying man to explain how he could be so broken up about a person he never new.

the man replied, "it was my wife's first husband..."

Don't do me any favors, sweetheart. If you're not interested in what I have to say, be bold enough to tell me, so I can find someone else who is.

I am impressed by this:

You have a way with words, BT. Your wife is a lucky woman. I hope Matt's listening, but I have a feeling he's a bit busy at the moment ...

Garlic, you put the words right in my mouth! I think communication is extremely important in marriage and one of the best ways to keep it healthy and happy.

Ouch, That Hurt ..... Your Mean!!! Sniff.

LMAO!!!!

Let me take a guess, as you were reading what I wrote you came to understand the Glazed Look in your SOs eyes as you prattle on about your day .... ;)

I guess it's a good thing I married a strong woman and not some needy little girl.

Seems not everyone can say the same.

Clearly you haven't met my DH of almost 24 years.

Please ... if you think you can make a judgment like that based on a few posts in an online forum ... well, I think this thread has been hijacked enough. See ya around.
