Stupid Things Never To Say In An Argument

People argue all the time. I have been married 10 years and we have some great arguments! It doesn't really matter who is right most of the time (although it is me). What matters is that it is constructive and everyone feels respected. Here are the stupid things that people say that can really just destroy an argument. You didn't apologize correctly-Many times someone will apologize to keep the peace and move on. Usually that person is the stronger person and you should be thankful they are able to do this. Obviously if they say "sorry but you are a complete idiot" you won't accept it. But if they say they are sorry take it and move on. You don't even know what you did wrong-This is a woman usually yelling at a man. Typically men don't know or understand what they did wrong. And many times they did nothing wrong. I...

Only Read if You are a Bitch or the Men Who Love Us!

I know there are many who claim men like bitchy women. And truth is that some men do like bitchy women. But I can assure you that the men that like the bitches are not the kind of guys we want to date. I don’t want to get into semantics over legal definitions here. We all need to agree that a bitch is NOT a woman with an opinion or a woman with confidence. A bitch is someone that is always looking for a reason to be miserable. If she doesn’t have anything to complain about she will find or create something. And she only looks forward to her man coming home so she can attempt to make his life as miserable as she is feeling. That is a BITCH!! And truth is I know many of them. I have witnessed friends and neighbors call their husbands at work and vent for 5...

Why Wear the Wedding Ring?

I admit it I don’t like wearing my wedding ring. I could make up some reasons but truth is I just don’t like jewelry. I wear earrings and random necklaces that would be considered costume jewelry. 12 years ago my husband and I visited North Hampton, MA and I selected a ring for a few hundred dollars. It is a cool artsy ring that I still love. And when we go out on a date (which is rare) I always put it on. My husband has huge hands (those who have read my others blogs know I don’t date guys with small hands). He doesn’t like jewelry and quite honestly a ring on those sausage fingers would look pretty gross! So most of the time Erik and I are ringless! Ancient Romans believed that you wear the ring on the 4th left finger because that vein goes straight to the heart....

Misplacing your Underwear-Great Way to Flirt

Well in most cases married couples claim they are too old, tired, comfortable or disinterested to flirt with their spouse! These couples couldn't be making a bigger mistake. Even if it feels forced initially flirting is a very important part of keeping your marriage fresh, happy and exciting. It let's your spouse know that you still find them appealing, desirable and interesting. And best of all there is a great reward with no financial investment required. So if you haven't flirted with your spouse in a while pick your favorite from the list below or better yet pick the whole list! 1. Ladies if you do the laundry switch things up once in a while. Take your sexiest pair of underwear and accidentally or not so accidentally put them in your spouses drawer with his socks and boxers. He is sure to blush when he picks them up. 2. After a hot shower the...

How Can Making Dinner Be So Wrong?

So every once in a while (and I mean once in a while) Erik has this brilliant idea to make dinner. He opens up a recipe book, goes to the grocery store and creates an amazing meal for the family. Now rationally I know that I am very lucky to have a husband that helps out like this and takes the burden off of me once in a while. But for some reason it never plays out quite like this. I begin getting defensive. I feel as if he is trying to say that I am not a good enough wife and should have already made such a delicious meal. I do cook but it is rare that I pull open a recipe book like he does. I am great with Mexican night, throwing some burgers on the grill and easy chicken and rice dishes. My meals are edible and no...

Cheating??

The big question lately is whether or not an internet relationship is considered cheating. I don’t know if a divorce court judge would call this infidelity, but I sure would. Any time someone in a marriage is having a relationship that is being kept a secret and could potentially harm the relationship than it is cheating, as far as I am concerned. Imagine what could happen if we didn’t consider this cheating? I truly believe that there are plenty happy, faithful relationships in this world but I understand with all that is happening in the media that many are starting to doubt this. The truth is that if you get married in this lifetime you are going to marry one of 3 types of men. You may not figure out which type you actually married for a long time. But eventually the truth will be revealed. Now I know most married...
