    24 years and I just figured the whole thing out today. Be a man, and treat your baby like she's your baby. Seriously. That's all you have to do.

    OMG. It was always so simple. :facepalm:

    28 years and I completely agree. I'm not sure about 'being a man' - as the years pass by the reality is painful to swallow. But treating your baby like she's your baby, yeah, that certainly saved my marriage, and my bacon.

    That philosophy seemed to backfire in the ghetto.

    Can't be too bothered by what you fail to hear, notice, or comprehend

    I agree, adding keep the wife happy. If she's not happy, I won't be.

    Thats the whole answer to the OP?

    You will be one miserable SOB if you don’t keep her happy.....

    If you do this.....”Life is good “ :agreed:


    AND “PIZZA”

    I realize more and more each day the phrase "happy wife, happy life" is pretty deep and true...

    As mentioned before "Yes dear" is as crucial as "Sir yes Sir" in bootcamp.

    If she is unhappy then that means I get to be miserable... I love to make her happy but sometimes I just gotta save my own ass... "Yes dear!"

    I guess if sitting in front of your computer all day posting on the forums qualifies as treating your baby like your baby, we're all GOLDEN.

    Im approaching 10 years married and 15 years together total. We've both remained faithful and are still going. Theres ups and downs everyday, some days we cant stand to be in the same building as each other, but in the end, we always work it out and remember why we got together to begin with. Its easily the hardest job you can manage along with raising kids, but you keep your chin up and you make time for one another
