364: How to be a good husband

~Is your marriage like this ?~

Wife with THAT look:  “You are so childish !”

Husband:  “No, I am not.  Now get out of my fort !”

~Then follow my tips to save your marriage~

1:  A man who is about to get married must ensure that his future wife has really fallen for him before finalising the wedding.

 2:   Make sure that your honeymoon is memorable.

3:   Always tell your wife that she is beautiful even when she is delicately applying a mud pack.

4:  When your wife asks you what coloured shoes she should wear, tell her that either looks wonderful on her.

5:  Your wife will be delighted every time you phone her unexpectedly.

6:   Impress your wife by your flat pack building skills.

7:  Your wife will be so happy with the ceiling fan you have just installed.

8:  Encourage your wife when she wants to keep fit.

9:  Designate a special area in your home for your wife to practice yoga.

10:  A good husband will do those labour intensive jobs such as cutting small logs for the log burner. 

11:  Your wife will be so pleased that you take out the garbage every night.

12:  Your wife will love you for being so conscientious about recycling garbage.

13:  Always praise your wife for her parking skills.

14:  If your wife wants to help global warming by joining a car pool, be happy to let her.

15:  Be a gentleman and get the shopping cart for your wife.

16:  Let your wife go get that little extra item she wants.

17:  Encourage your wife to help you stay smart for her.

18:  If your wife cannot do something, praise her for trying, then encourage her to try again.

19:  Finally, be your wife’s best friend and keep her smiling.

Follow my tips and you will live happily ever after.

    • I have no idea how to reply to your comment GP. I will have a go anyway. You are either too old to change, widower, divorced, single or you are stranded on a desert island with just a female coconut to nag you. One of those options should hit the mark my friend. Take care. Ralph 🙂

  8. Yeah, unfortunately, when I gouged his hair while cutting it, it was somewhere where he could see it.
    And that did nothing good for our marriage, lol !!!!

    • Oh dear ! Cringe fringe ! I am sure that after three weeks when his hair grew back you were back on talking terms. At least you didn’t cut down a tree which fell on your house. lol.

    Yes, all is well here and the weather is lovely. Hot enough for Natascha to be out this afternoon watering the flowers on her mum’s grave.
    Take care my friend. Ralph xox ❤


  10. The yoga photo is on a ship. That’s exactly what cruise ship bunks look like. They fold down out of the ceiling of some cabins so more than 2 people can sleep in the room.

  12. Believe it or not V and I will celebrate 24 years of wedded, if not bliss, then some of the above pictures might work. Not the yoga one or driving into a pond, or felling a tree on the house, or tripping up with a wheelbarrow. Okay, maybe none of those fit us. Our secret – I think, we put up with each other’s shortfalls and admire the stuff to be admired. So far it seems to be working. 🙂 xxx Oh yes, and he bought a gigantic x and o for our living room wall.
