    You probably need to be married for 40-50 years to truly appreciate this.

    I always thought that by time you got there there was no pretense, no ulterior motives, no b.s.... You just told each other how it is and you liked it that way.



    Disclaimer: I've never been married and my longest relationship was ~5 years.

    That cartoon is missing several panels where the guy says, “OK, for pizza I want everything with anchovies” and the wife says “Ohh, yuck.”, then the guy says, “OK then, sausage, ham, onion, green pepper and olives.” and the wife says, “What’s on there that I like?” Also, if it is my house, the final is never pepperoni, it is always Hawaiian pizza.

    Uber-rich guy I’m working for right now is on one side of the political spectrum and his wife is waaaay over on the other.

    he’s one of those big brash powerful dudes always knows where he is and what he’s doing and how he wants things done.

    I told him well, I hope for your sake that your wife’s candidate wins.

    He laughed and said “Yeah - no s*** ! Or else my life will be a living hell…” :lol:

    Everyone's gotta do their own thing but I will never understand people who live in constant deference to their s/o, regardless of gender. The other person's happiness does not take precedence over yours, esp if you're being obsequious out of fear of the 'consequences.' Seems like abuse.

    So true, but sometimes one of you can get creative. Once in a while you can "get in front" of the decision making process by providing "false flag" responses based on your knowledge of your better half's preferences that can lead to your real choice (Chinese!).

    In the end I think my dear old Dad had it about right when he pointed out, "There is no such thing as 50/50 in any marriage (...or relationship). It's always 50/51 because in order to make it all work, each of you will always think you're the one who has to make the extra effort or sacrifice for the sake of the marriage."

    You learn when not to fight, subjects/language to avoid for sure. I've just had a dozen or so pals over the years who've dutifully recited 'happy wife happy life amiright' to me after getting shrieked at in public. None of them seemed all that happy to me, married to glowering bullies. Can't think of a one that's still married.
