Tillerman35's secret to marital bliss [NOTE: Keep this to yourself, and don't let ANYBODY in on the secret, especially your wife- and SUPER especially not MY wife]:

Whenever your wife talks to you, simply repeat the last three to five words of whatever she says to you.  99% of the time, this will make her believe you weren't ignoring her (almost) completely.  About every five times you do this, change your intonation so that it appears you're asking a question.  Other times, if you find a verb in there somewhere, emphasize it to show you're agreeing with her.

Her: My sister and I went down today.  She bought [... going into fugue state ... thinking about buying a new set of metal files ... wonder if there's anything on the TiVo that I haven't watched yet ... oops! sounds like she's about to wrap up...] and it only cost ten dollars!
Me: Only cost ten dollars?
Her: Yeah - I KNOW!!! Can you believe it? [... external sensors set to minimal gain ... is there beer in the fridge? ... maybe I should make a run to the store ... and- rewind/review] Jennifer said it was cute.
Me: It WAS cute.
Her: Awww. Thanks, Honey!  I'm so glad you're not like all those who hate talking to their wives.

"Husbands were a bit more apt to forget what their wife said than vice-versa."

That's because women tend to say a lot more than is necessary so men just learn to ignore 90% of it. The trick isn't how to tune her out, it's how to tune back in when she finally gets around to making her point.

Clearly, subby must be single since the Hero tag was used when it should have been the Obvious tag.

Also, why in the hell are there so many guys in this thread that married someone that they can't stand talking to? Jeez, that was a horrible decision.

Daffydil: Additionally:  Nagging only happens when women have to keep repeating themselves...get it right the first time and this won't happen...

We don't work for you. Don't like the way we do it? Do it yourself.

In my Human Growth and Development class in college my instructor stated that men lose the ability to hear higher pitched frequencies (like their wives voices) as they age. She asked us if anyone knew why.

I raised my hand and said: "Intelligent design: it's the last bit of peace we get before we die.".

The 32 women in the class were not amused. The 3 men were.

hammettman: Thanks research.  For round 2 of your clinical study, could you resolve the following paradox:

Premise: Wifey lays out critical detailed instructions for subject to do blah blah blah
Subject:  Acknowledges critical detailed instructions to do blah blah blah
Variable: Wifey refuses to accept subject's acknowledgement and demands "okay, tell me what I just said..."

Goal: Devise an appropriate response for subject.

The appropriate response is to repeat what she just said.  The only reason this has to happen is because men like to say they 'don't remember'

Additionally:  Nagging only happens when women have to keep repeating themselves...get it right the first time and this won't happen...

My husband likes to start a conversation from another room but when I reply to what he's asked, he says "What? What? I can't hear you! Speak louder!". Then I speak louder and he says "Why are you shouting at me?"  If you can't hear someone in another room, why start a conversation with them?

The needed to research this? It's been known for thousands of years. Next thing you know they'll be researching water to see if it's actually wet.

I sometimes wonder how much they spend on this type of research. I am also sure that they could have saved thousands, if not millions by simply going to the local bar and asking anyone there
