'What your Mother did not tell you, what you Dad never knew', 'Your Ok, I'm Ok'....yada, yada, yada......

After reading a lot of books, I find my wife has plenty of logic & does not play mind games or female under distress stuff. Who else has a simular relationship?

I love my wife dearly, but, I really wish she would say what she means and mean what she says. for instance, we are driving down the highway and about ten feet before the exit ramp she announces, "There is a McDonalds's." Of course we are in the passing lane. Why can't women just say, "Honey, I need a potty break, or I'm hungry, could you stop somewhere." I don't have ESP. How am I supposed to separate, there is a bright colloered truck, or that is a strange house, from there is a McDonald's. Warning would also be nice, Let me know before we reach the freakin exit. At 75 miles per hour, there is still at least thirty seconds notice you can give once the exit comes into view. Those signs along the interstate about 1 miles before the exit with the symbols for the gas stattions and restaraunts are there to warn you that what you may be looking for is just a mile down the road. Don't wait until we are in the shadow of the overpass to ask to pull off the flippin road.
As Christmas appoaches, some of us husbands are desperate to get you something you want, but without having you tell us directly and without having you along to pick it out. Don't tell our daughter that you want a new ring, or a whatever unless you really want it. We know you are picky about colors and sizes, so we don't buy clothes that you will just have to take back. While we men are happy with new tools to do our work, most of us realize that wives aren't usually pleased with a new appliance (tool for her work.)

About five months ago, I over heard my wife tell her girlfriend that she'd like to get away for the week end without the kids. So I arranged it. Got the in laws to watch the kids, made reservations at a resort and restaurant etc. Come the Friday night to leave, she cancelled the reservations and complained the whole weekend about missing the kids.

Enough ranting. I love her but she drives me crazy.

Maybe I can clue you in abit or it is my take on the subject anyway...Usually after driving 200 miles most folks need to pee...not wanting to cut down on the great time we are making alothough it don't matter at all when we get there...We ladies never say a word...knowing full well we will get that "look", and be ask,,"Can you hold it another few mintues until the gas tank gets alittle lower so we can kill two birds with one stone???"
Most the time you fellers know what we like and what we don't and what buttons you can and can't push...we usually drop little subtle hints on what we might like for "the present"...Sometimes a card with beautiful words and a heartfelt I love you can mean more than anything storebought...But hey...we know ya'll HATE to shop so we try and understand when you say I don't know what to get you...get yourself something and I will pay for your weren't going to pay for my Christmas present to begin with???
Do you realize how hard it is to try and figure out what to cook three times days aweek???...When we ask.."What would you like for supper?"...Consider alittle input and not just say "Food" or anything...
Yes we do enjoy not cooking once in awhile and like to go out and eat...Ofcorse we are glad that you think that no one cooks as well as me and won't I rather be home than in some cafe???
But give us alittle break...
Just remember we are all little girls at heart like we know that under that rough and handsome extior that we call our the hearts of a darling little boy..who we papmer and make excuses for when needed...and no matter what LOVES you to if you almost work us to death building fences and plowing with a David can say all of this because MAtt never uses the

Incidentally it's been proven that a man's bladder is larger than the a female's bladder.

Male and female bladders are about the same size and same volume, but because women have to make room behind the bladder for the vagina and uterus, the bladder often ends up wrapped in a sort of U over the top of the pubic bone.

Men don't have to fit in those extra organs, so their bladder sits further back and less folded. Some women still don't have any problem "holding it" compared to men, but in general that fold over the pubic bone provides enough pressure on the bladder that women often do need to urinate more frequently.

Ergo, (all you GUYS) we DO need to pee more often, and NO we can't hold out as long as can, and YES it is not something we can control.

"When we ask," What would you like for supper?" I"ve also learned not to say "Suprise me."

Great post.......and let the wife drive once in a while....and keep comments to oneself about her driving, hey I know women who even drive 18 wheelers, stopping for breaks, everyone needs them. and move around...walk some, healthier too for your legs/clots etc.Ha...I have come to the conclusion: Selective Hearing/speech, we all have it.

Suzie, I know those women too, and I'm all for them driving trucks. I am however against them having C.B. Radios,,,,
As soon as they get out of driving school, they're on the radio telling everyone else what they learned, how to drive, and what they are doing wrong, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah,and on, and on, and on, and onnnnnnn.
Man I'm gonna hurt fer that one,,,,

Jimbob,I have the sweetest little wife to ever come out of Georgia, or anywhere else for that matter. I have told her from day one that our marriage is all about her! She's so good to me and treats me like the man I am. I am so grateful for her!

you just said the secret to a true happy marriage.
tell the wife it's all about her. wifes, tell your husband it's all about him.
to do anything less is simply self centered to focus on ourselves. it's ALL about that other person. and if they don't tell you back that it's all about you, you shouldn't have expected it, because you should be focusing on , it's all about them. and mean it!.

and when you mean it, life with all it's rough edges, is good.

you are one smart man, I am sure you have had or will have a wonderful life.
