Relationships Are About Sharing
I wrote this piece back in ’08, right after I’d gotten married to perhaps the only woman who I should be married to. It’s weird, but that’s just the way I feel. It’s not perfect, but by my standards, it’s probably about as close as it will ever get. And believe me, it hasn’t always been easy. That’s why they always say that ‘marriage is work’. They are not kidding, so add me to the list. To me, if you learn 2 or 3 things about marriage ( before you get married ), and you ‘work’ to do those things, if you hopefully have married someone who is willing to put in the same effort, all should end ‘happily ever after’. So here goes.
Ladies and gentlemen, I just got married, a couple of months ago. The one thing that I KNOW my wife loves about me is the fact that I have no problem cooking for her ( I do MOST of the time ), she does the laundry MOST of the time, but I’ll jump in and help her quite often. There are NO duties in the home that are HERS! I’ll cook for her, then clean up the kitchen. Sometimes ( if I let her ), she’ll clean up, or, do both. I let her handle the bills. She’s better at it! So I have no problem with it. We both take out the garbage. I cut the grass, but she’ll get out with the weed wacker and trim. And on the subject of fixing my plate, then bringing it to me. I’ve seen that done. My wife will do it, if I let her. Sometimes I do, but then again, I’ll return the favor, too. Relationships are ALL about sharing. People, we’re not living in the 70’s any more. Most couples nowadays both work. My wife and I both do. Back in the day, this wasn’t the case in most households. But, just because your mother, or wife, is at home all day, don’t even think of belittling what it takes to run the household, daily. It is a constant juggling act, that very few people can handle. And, as for the SEX, you have to be considerate of each other. There are going to be days when one of you aren’t going to be in the mood. You just have to figure out the way to get them in the mood. Talk. You’ll figure it out.
Stay tuned for the other things, of the 2 or 3, that I was talking about. It should make for interesting conversation. But that’s just my thoughts. What’s yours?
