Default Re: A few minor cons of marriage

Well, I like being Married. We made an arrangement with the TV, first off, NO TV IN THE BEDROOM! Not allowed. Bottom line. The Bedroom is for 2 things, sleeping and sleeping in.

I do find that being married is tougher in that I have to do a lot more things around the house that I'm not good at. Like fixing Electrical things, like putting in a new switch or even a new Ceiling fan (My latest project) I hate electricity. But Plumbing...Oh God, now I have to work on Plumbing, and let me tell you one thing, no matter what you're doing, be it fixing the Garbage Disposal or putting in some new pipes or Faucet heads, you are going to get WET, really really wet. No matter what you do, you will be WET. I hate plumbing. Also yard work, Mowing the lawn, clearing trees after an Ice Storm, Chopping wood, weed eating (which I try not to ever do cause it sux). Also, the kids, when your married and a dad, you get double hit with it, you have to tell the girls how pretty they are and build their confidence no matter how much they hate you that day (which little girls turn faster than Reagan in the Exorcist) Sleep overs, with other little girls running around screaching and screaming and yelling and AHHHHHHH! Its gets to you.

So for the guy who says he's getting married soon, first off, Have your own space, be it an office, a garage, a tool shed, somewhere where you can go, once in a while and either watch that Hockey Game your wife has zero interest in, or build a bird house, or just drill holes into a piece of wood that spell out the words (I Love her) you'll do ok.

Also, another Married Rule...Her car must ALWAYS be better than your car. You're a dude, you can walk 20 miles in the rain with sandels and a pair of shorts on with 20 mile an hour winds...she must never Break Down, EVER. its your job to keep her safe and that means, her method of transportation must be better than yours. That's a Rule. Right it down.

Ah..words of wisdom. Yes, I must say that I also love being married. The pros far outweigh any cons. But there are always some quirks, and, a live in girlfriend IS NOT THE SAME as being married. I can't explain it...but it isn't...it's totally different.

Also, we split the TV Time. I get the Remote for all Pittsburgh Related FOOTBALL items. However once Football Season is over, I hand it over. We have a few shows we watch together that we both enjoy, but there is something about her love of Reality TV that just eats at my guts as I sit through it. I guess that's how she feels when I'm watching USC vs Oregon State on a Thursday Night. "This game is who? what? Do you even like either team?" Nope, but its a great team, its the number 1 team vs a Rival they can't beat on their field! "Yeah, and I care why?" Right Honey...I'll watch it in my office.

I can't wait to get the Remote back in August. Although, I kind of enjoy Project Runway....YEAH I SAID IT! WHO Wants to say something about it HUH! I'm RIGHT HERE!

Yep...50% of everything you own walks out the door with her if she ever leaves.

No, really that's why I have my office. If I really want to watch something...like Duke vs FSU this weekend, I'll go in there and watch it.

Ok, time for a chick to weigh in here lol.

While I'm not married just yet, we have been engaged for 2 years and living together for almost 4. There are definitely things that get on my nerves already that I thought were cute and quirky when we were just dating.

1) Must every guy lick their fingers when their done eating a meal. Isn't that what napkins and soap and water are for?
2) (Kind of goes with 1) Do you really have to eat every meal like it is the first and last thing you're ever going to eat? SLOW DOWN! Chew your food and swallow before shoving the next huge bite into your mouth!
3) I'm an easy going gal, I like to think I give my fiance enough space (i.e. he gets to go out and browse and shop for whatever he wants whenever, I'll leave the room if he's watching something I don't want to watch, and I like my personal space in general so I try not to crowd), but is it really necessary to spend a half hour on the toilet? It takes me 5 minutes or less to "do my business"...what's up with that?
4) Sports...I love hockey and football, but while my fiance likes watching hockey and football games with me, I get the glazed over look if I try to talk about the game afterwards. In his defense I get the same way when he goes on about music and the band sometimes, but I get chastised for it where I'll typically let it go when he does it. Sigh.
5) Eye rolls anytime I ask him to do the dishes or walk the dog or...god forbid...do his own laundry once in a while.

There's more, but I'll stop here (for now). I love him and we get along great and I know there's stupid things I do that annoy him, but just felt a girls opinion needed to be voiced here lol.

Keep in mind that all that stuff amplifies when you get married...take heed. And, BTW, taking a nice long duece is a perfect escape from the dog, wife, kid, life....a time to relax, read and think.

Haha, I guess it's time for me to start taking 30 minute craps then! I bet if I did either my daughter or him would start banging on the door for something or other though. I'm going to try this experiment soon, see where it goes lol.

We might as well be married, we've been meaning to for a little over a year now, just haven't had the funds to. I'm about ready to just go to the court house and get the paperwork and just spend the money on a nice vacation (honeymoon) for us, I know that's what we'd both appreciate more. I've really only been holding out for having a ceremony for family members, they'll just have to deal though, unless they want to pay for it lol.

Why is it the only time they want to "talk" is in the middle of a game? Then they think your ignoring them.
