Why won't our wives do what we tell them to?

    We've got sleet and icing on the way. My lovely beloved found an electric broom she wants at a store four miles away. I told her she wasn't going to drive today and she's like I'm not even here.

    "You can go with me if you want" in her chipper voice.

    I guess now I've got to get cleaned up.

    Isn't there something somewhere that says the husband gets to be the boss? I guess she missed that class.

    Hardly. I'm 6'6" tall and weigh 240 pounds.

    You'd think that would mean something, wouldn't you?

    Are you serious? Last I checked, a man's wife is supposed to be an adult with her own mind and a will of her own, capable of making her own choices.

    In my situation, my wife is fully capable of choosing when and where and what conditions she can drive in, and deciding on whether or not whatever she wants to buy or do is worth driving in the conditions that exist. I could not and would not TELL her to do anything. I would suggest maybe letting the broom wait, or hurrying up and getting to the store and back before the sleet and ice hits, but I know she's competent and has the sound judgment necessary to make the right choice.

    I would not have married a woman who needed to have her hand held and be guided through life, nor would I have married a woman who would let me do so. I've never wanted kids and had no intention of marrying one.

    I smell a troll.

    I wear the pants in my family.

    But my wife picks them out and tell me which ones I can wear.

    Since when does physical statue and ego dictate over mutual respect
    and co-operation in a marriage? I could say more, but this thread
    is headed south!

    It's the old guilt trip they are laying on you. Last time the wife tried that on me, I told her "Ok, so you are only going a couple of miles, I will take the Mercedes to work, and you can drive the Jetta stickshift". She HATES the stick..:tongueout:

    I make all the big decision in my family and my wife tells me which ones are the big ones. Works good.

    I'll drive it south.

    If you haven't developed the level of respect in your marriage that has her paying attention when you're talking about safety, then you're failing miserably. And, no, suiting up so that the storm can take you both doesn't count for a thing in the redemption column.

    Hey, just be glad she's getting you an electric broom so you don't have to sweep with that manual one anymore.:supergrin:

    Sounds like it's time to convert the family to Islam...
