What it takes to keep your spouse happy and your life together long lasting.
Well - I don't have a clue.
I've not been married long enough to give advice.
Even if we were married that long, I'm not telling why because have you noticed that as soon as someone talks (or writes a book) about how great their life is together their marriage ends?
What I will do is tell you ten things that you should never ask your spouse mainly because they are annoying things to ask in general and I would be annoyed with these things, too. And, since this is my humble opinion feel free to post your list or add to mine. If you wrote one feel free to add your link in the comments, always looking for new ways to avoid (overly) annoying the Husband.
10 Things You Should Never Ask Your Spouse
1. Do you want to do the dishes? or Have you done [insert list item here]?
Of course, he does not want to do the dishes or fold the laundry. I don't want to either but saying it needs to be done rather then asking maybe easier, so I'm told. And, nothing like adding more pressure by asking something you all ready know the answer to.
2. Do you think she/he is pretty/handsome?
If you have to ask then hopefully you can take the truth and if your spouse is smart they answer truthfully as they ogle your body. Fair is fair. But, really, can you honestly say you stopped looking or you don't have crushes from time to time? I have one right now.
3. What's for dinner?
If you have to ask the question you are just asking for disappointment if nothing is made or you are insulting them because you can't tell what the mystery dish is on the table. Best to just look and react.
4. Do you still love me?
Well, duh, they are still residing with you despite the baggy sweat pants and watching
me you eat peanut butter out of the jar. Love, like what is the difference really?
5. Can I have the remote?
I know this is cliché but... what the heck is it about that thing and why is it so coveted!
6. Would you like to go to Lilith Fair (or any other gender biased activity)?
Sure some spouses would want to go but if you have to ask because they haven't bought the tickets to the obvious concert or event that they do not want to go to why bother? I'm sure there are plenty of other things you can do as a couple. See number 7.
7. Wanna screw?
This should be a given regardless of who is asking but if the response is, "not right now," you can't have hurt feelings because you will be to busy driving them to the doctors or emergency room. The obvious exclusion is parents of young children and then it is acceptable to make a plan.
8. Did you hear what I just said?
If you ever have to ask think back, to that day that you read this, and remember I said, "no, they were not listening."
9. You want to do what, where?
I can see how this would be on some people's list, butt... eh. That is another post.
10. What should I NOT ask you?
