Uchiha_Cycliste: thamike: Uchiha_Cycliste: 9th grade english. I had an old crone for a teacher that was (or acted like a romantic) and had us role play / read Romeo and Juliet in class and then write an essay. I wrote my essay on the fallacies of codependency. She was unamused =D.

12th grade English.  My  teacher wanted us to write about how The Godfather mirrors Macbeth for our final essay.  We had an option to disagree.  I wrote an entire paper--a well written one with citations and footnotes--about how they in no way  mirrored one another (besides the point that power is a corrupter, which is too vague a concept to make a declarative comparison).  I had to fight off a D, because apparently this dipsh*t had fancied himself a genius for coming up with the idea, and took my response personally.

I have yet to find an educational department more full of sh*t on average than high school English departments.

yeah, I considered my essay pretty well written, but my abysmal score reflected our *ah hem* differences in opinion. =/


Don't take it personally... English class is more of a... "write what the teacher/professor" believes and not so much a "Write what you believe..."

Uchiha_Cycliste: mafiageek1980: Uchiha_Cycliste: NewportBarGuy: A man-child who says he needs a woman to be a better man.

There are some cases where this is true.
For instance the deal I have going with my girlfriend. Though we've only been dating since July, we've been best friends forever. And for at least the last ten years we have had a deal worked out where if she tells me to do something I do it, and if she tells me not to do something I don't. No arguing, no discussion.
When she says you need to go to the hospital right now, I skedaddle to the closest hospital. When she says, no! you can't climb on that! I don't. I seem to lack that little voice that says 'hey, maybe that's not a good idea' so she provides it for me =D

\been best friends for almost 25 years (since we were 6)
\\been pretty deeply in love for at least a couple of years before we started dating. ♥

damn, it's a bit dusty here in casa de la mafiageek all the sudden!

would the dustiness be mitigated with the unavoidable irritation from us acting like young high school sweet hearts? =P

Heh, I think it's funny that for years now we've talked about marriage and kids and stuff, mostly in general terms for all our conversations but (apparently) it was in the back of both our minds that these conversations would possibly/probably actually be bout us. Also, I know her well enough that on a little vacation we took a while ago I asked her, no that's not right, i stated, you don't want to take my name if we get married do you. Which she agreed. What was neat was that we both knew her answer but it took a long time for us to dig down into why she said no. Well, the obvious solution is that I'll take her name. All that's important to me is that were we to get married we have the same last name as a symbolic statement that we are starting a family together. I don't particularly care if we keep mine, or I have hers as long as ew share the same surname.  I know it ages down the road, but I can't wait to be married.


Taking her name is expensive and difficult bro. Good luck.

The two biggest arguments my husband and I have ever had in 10 years of marriage:

1. The Great Chicken Salad Sandwich Debate of 2007. This was a basic Arby's versus Chick-fil-A argument that turned into a shouting match.

2. The yelling match that started over which of us could hook up the television to the myriad of gaming consoles we have in our possession the fastest. After an hour of him fumbling with various cords, I did it in about two minutes. I still don't let him set up the electronic devices. Seriously, I recently shoved him out of my office chair after he attempted to learn Windows 8 and decided to instead go with Google for a solution to my problem.

I also yell at him from time to time when he gets my takeout order wrong.

Haters gonna hate. That said, you may want to wait till the first year is wrapped up before dispensing marriage advice.
 
2013-03-03 01:19:51 PM

mainstreet62: The key to a good marriage is to provoke key arguments on your terms on stuff you have a strong opinion about. If you can steer her to the conclusion you wanted in the first place, and let her think she won, who REALLY won?

Look dumbfounded anytime your wife is yelling at you on her terms about anything else. She'll drop it quick. And just do whatever she tells you when she's angry. You're going to do it anyway.


Or you can get a boat and learn to fish.

PsiChick: I have to say, as someone who hears the female and male version of this all this time, yeah, I'm with this guy, STFU. If you marry a man-child\shrewish biatch,  go figure out a way to make it work or get a divorce, but don't clutter up girl\guy time with biatching about it. "Oh, yeah, last Tuesday I had to help my husband run the dishwasher, he just couldn't figure it out, ha ha!" "My wife's such a biatch, she's calling me every ten seconds to be sure I'm not cheating, ha ha!".

I mean, I'm sure this is funny to some people, but the rest of us are looking at you and idly considering introducing your head to a large blunt object to fix whatever obvious brain damage you had marrying such a nimrod in the first place.


I have a relative who lives to biatch about her spouse. I just don't engage anymore. Yeah, we know. He sucks. You hate him and it's plain as day you should leave but won't. There's really nothing for me to say here.

Our last argument was because I was looking up plans to build an adult sized soap box racer. The future Mrs. titwrench explained that I was not allowed to build it until I finish my hovercraft. I protested, she won.

Uchiha_Cycliste: Mrbogey: Uchiha_Cycliste: We were discussing the NoFx song "Don't call me white" I interpret it as don't make assumptions based on race, she thinks they are avoiding and disregarding white privilege.

How that conversation doesn't end with the car swerving into the divider, I'll never know.

we were in bed drinking the morning coffee =D. I drove us to the airport 5 min later, then she drove to work and I went home =(.


That makes me smile so very very much. I love the random conversations that happen while snuggling.

My husband and I had a long conversation a few nights ago before we went to sleep about how if corporations are people too (my friend), then can they get married? And if so, how can we be sure of gender so they don't (gasp) get gay married?  And at what point is a subsidiary considered alive? Yeah, we're dorks.

I think there is a difference between biatching about something your spouse has done and them personally.    I don't see an issue with the 1st unless it's constantly.  The 2nd however indicates to me that you really are incompatible and probably making each other unhappy.  If you attack the person constantly or personally then it may be best to rethink your relationship.  With that said  e all do something stupid or irritating to the other person at some point.  I think what makes a lasting marriage is the ability to overcome those issues/times.

As for the author, thanks for the advice and after giving it some thought I don't think your advice is helpful for a healthy long term relationship over the years.  Being upset about something that bothers you and not getting it off your chest doesn't strike me as the best course of action.

The Douche masterfully separated his beautiful new wife from a modest guy who really loved her, by employing bluster and coercion.  Her resentment is building every second and will be brought to a head when he is discovered with the pool boy in the cabana.  Or the cabana boy in the pool.

Can you imagine being in a gym and saying to an acquaintance, "Man oh man, gotta go back home to the wife and pretend she knows how to cook, know what i mean?."  And some gladhanding meathead goes, "No, I don't know what you mean.  My marriage's perfect."  It's a weaponized form of self loathing.
 
2013-03-03 01:47:59 PM

ISO15693: 8 years here, and still never say anything negative about my wife. And partly because of that, our marriage just keeps getting better and better.


7 years married, and I *do* say negative things. They're usually to her, and phrased in a polite, constructive manner. Also, they're usually said after some thought, but not after a long enough period of time to allow resentment or anger to build up. It's the first lesson I learned. She does the same for me. "It bothers me when you do X, Y, or Z." Discussion ensues, an agreement is reached, problem solved.

As for the "lack of sex in marriage" jokes, yeah, that happens. It happens because there are more important things to do in an ever increasingly hectic life, and with anything, the thrill wears off unless you keep it interesting. What have you done lately for her in that area? If you're trying (and not just ham-fisted attempts at shoving your dick in her mouth) and she still in disinterested, maybe divorce is right for you. Or try having a talk.

Nobody's mad at the guy.  They're calling him out for being a glib asshole.  Nobody asked him to talk crap about his wife to strangers at the gym.  In fact, nobody asked him to talk to strangers at the gym in the first place.  Because of whatever personality disorder he has, he feels compelled to aim the only positive thing he imagines he has--a perfect marriage--at other men to make them feel more inferior than he does.  That's open hostility in its most banal form.

Yeah sure, he probably won't feel quite this schoompy once he's been married longer, but the general idea--don't hate your spouse, don't talk shiat about them in public--is a pretty sound one, I think.


Regardless if he ever talks bad about his wife or not, he didn't need to bother the other guy who just needed to vent.  Venting sometimes needs to happen.  I had a coworker that was going through a hard time with his wife and he would vent like mad at work.  Once, he called her a whore, which caused me to wince.  They later worked it out and got back together, maybe his venting allowed him to cool down so he could talk to her again.  Frustrations builds, for sanity's sake we need the understanding ear to either nod or give us some words of wisdom.  Judging someone who is frustrated will only mean they will now be angry with you.  He isn't a monster, but he is an obvious troll.

Anyone who thinks their partner is the epitome of perfection, with no fault ever, should probably have never married in the first place. You don't know someone until you've lived with them.

Uchiha_Cycliste: mafiageek1980: Uchiha_Cycliste: NewportBarGuy: A man-child who says he needs a woman to be a better man.

There are some cases where this is true.
For instance the deal I have going with my girlfriend. Though we've only been dating since July, we've been best friends forever. And for at least the last ten years we have had a deal worked out where if she tells me to do something I do it, and if she tells me not to do something I don't. No arguing, no discussion.
When she says you need to go to the hospital right now, I skedaddle to the closest hospital. When she says, no! you can't climb on that! I don't. I seem to lack that little voice that says 'hey, maybe that's not a good idea' so she provides it for me =D

\been best friends for almost 25 years (since we were 6)
\\been pretty deeply in love for at least a couple of years before we started dating. ♥

damn, it's a bit dusty here in casa de la mafiageek all the sudden!

would the dustiness be mitigated with the unavoidable irritation from us acting like young high school sweet hearts? =P

Heh, I think it's funny that for years now we've talked about marriage and kids and stuff, mostly in general terms for all our conversations but (apparently) it was in the back of both our minds that these conversations would possibly/probably actually be bout us. Also, I know her well enough that on a little vacation we took a while ago I asked her, no that's not right, i stated, you don't want to take my name if we get married do you. Which she agreed. What was neat was that we both knew her answer but it took a long time for us to dig down into why she said no. Well, the obvious solution is that I'll take her name. All that's important to me is that were we to get married we have the same last name as a symbolic statement that we are starting a family together. I don't particularly care if we keep mine, or I have hers as long as ew share the same surname.  I know it ages down the road, but I can't wait to be married.



OK now I'm starting to think you're trolling.  She doesn't have to take your name, of course that's reasonable, but you're going to take hers?  Just go ahead and slice of your nads and hang them on a chain around her neck rather than be weakly metaphorical about it.

In other words, you say "Yes dear."  There's only two ways a wife is perfect.  Either you're submissive and do everything she says.  Or she's submissive and does everything you say.  Any other way you disagree and no one's perfect.

We do disagree sometimes, but it usually results in us both learning something and coming at something from different POVs that we share. Never on important things though. With the deal we have worked out, often I'll call or text her and ask if I can do this or that, or I'll let her know if something not good is happening and ask her advice. Other times I can just ask myself, if she were here... would she let me do this? And that's kept me pretty safe (ie not severely injured and alive =D)
We have some debate about this, but we suspect because of the way we grew up, and the influence we've had on each other's tastes over time has resulted in us pretty much feeling the same about most things. Everything important at least. Likewise because of how we've pulled each other through bad times there's no one that knows each of us better than us in the whole world =D. She knows what I'm thinking and vice versa, almost like mind reading.

Interestingly, most of our disagreements occur over subjects involving race. For instance (and this happened yesterday morning, before we drove me to the airport). We were discussing the NoFx song "Don't call me white" I interpret it as don't make assumptions based on race, she thinks they are avoiding and disregarding white privilege. But pretty much there are no situations where submission is required, we are always on the same wavelength. If we differ, we argue on the merits of the situation. An engineer and a doctor are an awesome couple.


Fat Mike is also a douche
And show pony but that's a good tune about a dirty white boy that can't admit he's part of the problem

How that conversation doesn't end with the car swerving into the divider, I'll never know.

we were in bed drinking the morning coffee =D. I drove us to the airport 5 min later, then she drove to work and I went home =(.

That makes me smile so very very much. I love the random conversations that happen while snuggling.

My husband and I had a long conversation a few nights ago before we went to sleep about how if corporations are people too (my friend), then can they get married? And if so, how can we be sure of gender so they don't (gasp) get gay married?  And at what point is a subsidiary considered alive? Yeah, we're dorks.


Yeah, conversations like this are really fun. Also, I consider her to be smarter than me, which absolutely means the world to me. I've had roommates and neighbors before that ranged from not so sharp to honest to god dumb. Those conversations are either very restricted on what topics we can talk about and how much depth we caI had  n continue on with and sometimes it was very lonely... I had no one to really talk to. With her we can really talk about anything, work excepted because it requires such specific knowledge that isn't easy to abstract to discuss. She makes me think and listens and I make her think and listen the best I can, just often having things repeated because of my hearing. It just means so much to me that we can talk like that and that she contribute and understands and we compliment each other so well.

Just as importantly, we can sit there and say nothing and it never becomes uncomfortable. I had a roommate for a while that couldn't stand silence, it was almost bizarre but something had to be on: radio, tv, movie in the background, or HAD to be talking. For some reason silence wasn't okay, and I really appreciated with her and I we can have silence.
