All humor aside, I believe this is absolutely correct for most men.
I think to a great extent this is true. Tell him thanks for being a great provider, for taking such good care of the family, etc. That’s easy for me to say because my guy is all of those things and has been our whole marriage (coming up on 36 years).
There is an old joke about the way men and women communicate.
Take a STOP sign. Obviously designed by a man. Bright red, one word, capital letters. Couldn’t be more clear.
If a woman had designed it it would say, “If you really loved and understood me, you would know what it is that I want you to do right now.”
A man is better off living in the corner of a hot tin roof than with a scornful woman.
What do men want? It ain’t love. It’s respect.
Good stuff. Wives MUST resist any temptation to demean their honorable husband. And women should NEVER marry a dishonorable man.
For most men, the ugliest trait in a woman is she who publicly degrades & derides her spouse.
For most women, the ugliest trait in a man is he who thinks only of himself.
Very interesting article. Over the years I’ve come to respect Dennis Prager’s insight, wisdom and intelligence. He’s pretty high on my list of people I’d most like to meet for a two-hour conversation about any number of things.
Apparently a new drill press. It's in the garage. I'm NOT wrapping it.
A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:
You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.
She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:
Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
'That's nice,' she thinks, 'but I want more.'
So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.
'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims, 'I can hardly stand it!'
Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.
She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store .
To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.
The first floor has wives that love sex.
The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and like beer.
The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.
‘To crush your enemies,
see them driven before you,
and hear the lamentations of their women’
Great book. Taught me a great deal. It helped me to accept the things I cannot change...and to even embrace some of them.
I read through the responses and there were many good ones.
However, we all know that perfection in a wife or job or unswerving honor and admiration from our friends is unlikely to be the lot of most of us.
So I’m ready to settle for a loving young beautiful nymphomaniac who is the heiress to a brewing and distilling empire.
