    I rarely get mad about anything, life's too short.

    I envy all you guys who seem to have "ideal" relationships.....and I MARVEL at how you seem to have found each other. I have had MANY blessings in my life, and I'm grateful for them, but finding "Ms. Right" just hasn't been one of them. I'm not one of those guys who blames women for all the problems in a relationship.....and I accept that at least half the reasons for my lack of success are my fault, but I still see men with similar issues (as I have) that find compatible mates.
    But, I don't lie awake at night worrying about it....I just accept it as my destiny. Good luck all. ;)

    I never get mad at my wife anymore, really. One of the many benefits of getting old.

    It's funny how often the frustration or anger you have toward another person actually originates with you yourself. The last time I got mad at my wife, I was just hungry.

    No. I'm a lucky guy and we've both learned each other well over all these years.

    Marrying the right person helps. I'm glad I waited until my wife came along - when I was 39. She's has nursed me through too many serious illnesses. She's often the one urging me to get whatever guitar/car/etc. I'm currently lusting after, but I'm getting so much better at deferring gratification.

    My brother on the other hand married someone too much like out mother, and after 23 years and two kids, got divorced - it was expensive and ugly. He's much better poorer but happier with a new love in his life.

    Do we both do things that the other dislikes? Sure, be we're getting better at being adults about that.

    My answer is yes, but not for many things, and it doesn't last.

    My wife envies my ability to let go. She says she knows it's just a gust.

    I apologize before bed, and we carry on.

    So does she.

    Nope. But I do take it as my dedicated and honorable duty to annoy her by grabbing her in the most embarrassing times in the most embarrassing of manners. I’ve only got 2 black eyes and a loose tooth. I think I’m doing pretty good!

    yup. was once in a marriage like that. Like you, loved my kids and hung in. For me, in retrospect, that was a mistake. I got a divorce, worked out the kid stuff and had the opportunity for the relationship I deserved.

    I can absolutely remember exactly what you are expressing. Rooting for you man.

    My wife is truly a saint...loves me like crazy, makes the house look beautiful and has never said a word about my various pursuit of guitars, amps, pedals and musical opportunities. I'm blessed to be married to her. I have no idea most days why she sticks around.

    My wife craves order. I enjoy sort of enjoy disassembling order to refashion it, or just to see how it works. Given that we had both taken on our temperaments by age two or so, if not in utero, this is unlikely to change. Most days, our differences work in a complementary manner, but sometimes we just stand in our very different worlds and yammer away at one another. So it goes. On balance it's fine. Boys and girls are different, you know. This will come as news to certain ideologues, I understand.

    Ha. That would be my primary complaint too. My wife is great and our differences allow us to work well together and compensate for each other’s shortcomings, but she is far more extroverted than I am and just needs to burn through a certain number of words every day to be happy. I get it, but I need a certain amount of quiet to get through the day, and these needs aren’t totally compatible.
