So tell us the secret Longbyt !!

I could do with some pointers as to how one can possibly survive 42 years of marriage...

One wise old man once advised just to shut up and say "Yes Dear..."

I was specifically interested in how to get CJ to read "The Surrendered Wife"...

Re: So tell us the secret Longbyt !!

Now now ladies, remember sexual equality died out in the 90's. Men are getting everything back on track again after the fairer sex trashed the 60's , 70's and 80's.

When you have finished the house work, we can discuss this at length.

marriage is such a heavy burden that sometimes you need to be 3 to carry it

Re: So tell us the secret Longbyt !!

I didn't try to change him. (well, not much). And he didn't try to change me. (well, if he did, it didn't work).

I liked outdoor things - taking out the rubbish, hanging up the washing.
He liked indoor things - making my computer work, putting things back together which I had unintentionally demolished.

We both like sport. He's a good teacher, I'm a willing pupil.
We never 'expect' the other one to agree to an idea.

We never hold things against each other if a plan goes wrong. No recriminations.
Neither of us are very good at remembering birthdays and other anniversaries (we even once both forgot our Wedding Anniversary about six or seven years ago). Neither of us gives up easily so we understand the other one sticking at things.

Cannot think of anything else.

And if I don't go and get a meal for the guy, who has just returned from a 'working' day out, it'll be back to the doghouse for me...

Fantastic! A good, honest, loving, sound and mutually respectful relationship. I only hope that I can do half as well as you have

Most places don't do exchanges, once the packaging's been opened or tampered with.

Anyway, well done and many congrats.

[strange - 42 (for some unknown reason) is a significant number for me and is often cropping up in my life - this is the second time today, in just a couple of hours, it's made an appearance]
