Over the summer the regatta mother's and I discussed a subject I'd love your feedback on.
Husbands we like with bitchy wives.
How many times have you discussed a lady you know, perhaps one you don't like or disagree with certain actions and follow up the conversation with..."I really like her husband. He seems like such a great guy," ?????
I'm confident this has been said with regards to myself. But I was really surprised as we discussed this, how many times I've actually thought that about other couples. The point we were making is--it can't be that every "crazy" lady has a perfect husband. On some level the husbands must participate in "bad" behavior. Why do they get away with being a "great" guy while the wives take the brutal criticism.
A long time ago I formed a relationship belief of ying/yang. Opposites attract so naturally the mellow, great guy would have the "evil" wife. After further thought (and discussions this summer over long hours watching sailing), I'm rethinking my theory. #1 the husband can't always be perfect, #2 the ladies can't always be blamed for being bitchy. It is just too easy/simple to chalk it up to that.
How many times have you thought "Love the husband, but the wife?"
