Keep Your Marriage Brimming

Two secrets to keep your marriage brimming.
  1. Whenever you’re wrong, admit it
  2. Whenever you’re right, shut up.
The above quote, I received in my e-mail today. I agree with that guy one hundred and one percent!

I don’t know and I don’t think I will ever know, why women pocess that uncanny abilty to contradict every single thing a man says or every damn decision a man makes. The have this inborn instinct to always have the last word. No matter what you say, whether it is the undeniable truth or whether it is the ultimate fact, they somehow have the right contracticting statement to make at the end.

Be wary of denying them those rights, or all hell breaks loose and you will end up being boycotted for the rest of the week, for ‘Hell hath no Fury Like a Women Scorned’. Never scorn your women if you know what’s good for you and your mental health.

Let them have all the credit for whatever you done right, but admit it’s your miatake when things turn awry. Even though you made that decision based on her ‘last words’ because you did not want to scorn her.

Of course once a while, you have to make your stamp on certain things. Things that effect the very livelihood of your existence. Decisions that you know are extremely important, too important to let her have it her way.

When this decisions are proven right, it is with utmost importance that you shut that big mouth of yours up! Don’t go bragging how smart you are in front of her. She wouldn’t like it.

You being smarter that her, I mean. And she will feel scorned again. So shut up!

Follow these 2 simple rules and you will live happily ever after. You might even find her perfoming better in bed!

A Foreign Affair - No String Attached

A holiday affair is a tricky business. If both parties just want a bit of a fling and are happy to leave it at that, it's ok. However, there are dangers to a foreign affair. A week or two is not long enough to get to know someone so you don't really know what you're getting into. There may be unpleasant surprises lurking.

The other problem which may arise is if you actually fall for someone. What happens then? A foreign affair means you're miles apart once the vacation is over. Of course, you'll both promise to write and phone and even visit. When you return home and get back into your routine, the romantic feelings may fall away, but they could remain and then the parting is heartbreaking.

If you're both determined to meet up again, and you make it happen, it might be a disappointment. On vacation, there is sunshine, wine and everything is perfect. You're both on your best behaviour and a foreign affair is exciting. When you're with each other again in Pittsburgh in the rain, the romance may lose it's allure. You won't be watching sunsets together, but you'll be caught up in the mundane routine of living and seeing each other in a different light.

If you still feel the same way, then it's true love.

Friends and family will no doubt think you're mad. They'll try to talk you out of it, and warn you of the consequences. They may even be a little jealous. After all, a foreign affair is flattering and life affirming. They might be worried that you will be whisked away to a distant land and they'll never see you again.

The course of true love never runs smooth, if that's indeed what it is. A foreign affair makes things more complicated. If you want to stay together, one of you has to move. That may mean a totally different culture or set of beliefs. It takes a lot of courage to uproot yourself and move to another country. Being on vacation is totally different to living there. You may have to master another language, find work and get along with the in-laws. You might discover that your beloved is an axe murderer or was just looking for a way into your country. A foreign affair has been known to be pursued for the wrong reasons.

I am sure that there is a happy ending sometimes, but it's best to be ultra cautious when it comes to having a foreign affair. Sometimes, those long days of sun and surf are too beguiling and Cupid shoots his arrows in a dangerous direction.
