I joke on occasion (in public, mind you) that when we were married, my wife didn't have a sense of humor.

Luckily, She was leasing one... with an option to buy.

I get smacked a lot. I blame her for any serious future rotator cuff issues.

If your wife says "your pickup truck is too big and too expensive"

 

DO NOT reply, "well, so are you"

 

:D

I feel your pain.  Just before my first divorce I made the mistake of saying " A woman with your haircut and body shape shouldn't wear that dress."

I've always been the "Judgemental" one, a pesonality trait in family I think.  Wife knows how to re-act w/out getting wildly mad. I  don't get mad, or rarely anyway, I'm just cool about most things, and want to anylize the problem or event to make it right or be acceptable. Figure out what's wrong with situation and come up with a fix plan to make it right.

 

Far as the "love", it is in past, we just live with each other now for Convenience!  :smilewink:

We've only been married 40 years, and have only had 3 arguments in 43 years.

Fortunately, during these 43 years, my wife has learned how to handle my sarcasm.   :thumbs:

 

No real arguments in 23 years now.  Had enough of them in the previous marriage attempts.  Learned from the past and chose well this last & final stage of my life.  Teresa has also learned to handle my sarcasm, and I too have learned how best to use it.

Sarcasm is a double edged sword, unfortunately one of them is often in the handle.

We've been married 41 years, it took me five to realize what I was doing wrong, and five more to change her! OK, that was a joke, the part about changing her anyway. It did take about ten years to learn each other, just this morning I was told I need to "phrase things better".

My wife has got this routine every morning of sweeping the front & back porch off because she hates spider webs. The other morning I got up & went to the back porch so I could finish my coffee & my post on here.lol Here she comes to do the back porch & asked me if I seen her broom. I said no, why you want to fly somewhere. That didn't go over too good. We're coming up on 44 years next month...wouldn't have it other way.

I got another...some years back I was trucking out west when a very

well endowed young girl passed me...topless.  Darn truck wasn't fast

enough to keep up, but she went by slow enough to give me a good look.

 

Back at home , I'm telling a buddy about this and the wife overheard me.

She marched over and says "yeah, how often does this happen??".

 

I looked at her and said "not often enough!".....

 

Not surprisingly this was the wrong answer!

I speak fluent sarcasm also, after 22 yrs come next Saturday, I still haven't learned.

 

The wife said a few year back, " I might get a boob job"

I told her, "just rub some TP on them 3 times a day"

"what good will that do?"

I responded, "you've been doing it on your butt all your life and look how big it's gotten"

 

 

......doctors say I will fully recover.

13 years of marriage and still learning. Either I am forgetful or the list is growing.

My wife is either a hot mess or absolutely perfect. Depends on whether you asked me or her which she is.

Before I decide, can I see a picture of her?

 

We've been married 41 years, it took me five to realize what I was doing wrong, and five more to change her! OK, that was a joke, the part about changing her anyway. It did take about ten years to learn each other, just this morning I was told I need to "phrase things better".

When you learn how to phrase things, can you teach the rest of us?
