My husband and I have known each other for almost ten years and were best friends for seven years before we finally decided it was right to be more.
Our 2nd anniversary is coming around the corner and even though I love him so dearly, not a day goes by that he doesn't say, do, or NOT do something that makes me want to strangle him. Lol.
He comes from a semi long line of military fam, so is very "manly" and DOESN'T LISTEN TO ME!! I am aware that we are partners and equals and neither is superior but (scoff) c'mon. There is a LEGITIMATE reason the saying is "happy wife, happy life"
I am a sahm and he works long hours.
ALL he has to do when he gets home is listen to me. (and I do NOT ask or demand much, I know and appreciate all he does)
He literally does not have to even think, just do what I ask lol
He either has a bad memory or just doesn't give a poop. I'd love to think.it's the latter so that I can snap at him, but his memory really is horrible. Sigh.
But if he would just do what I ask WHEN I ask, it wouldn't take him 4 days of forgetting! Am I wrong in thinking that
*grumbles* I suppose.
Turns out we have different love languages.
Sigh. Enough venting.
I suggest this survey/site that a friend in counseling recommendedhttp://www.5lovelanguages.com/assessments/love/
Good luck and let me know how it goes, we took it this weekend and are trying to learn to speak the others lingo.
I'll keep anyone interested updated with our process. I mean "progress" lol (;
