Over a trip like that, I'd get insistent with a ROOMMATE or a co-worker or someone in the marina, let alone my wife.
I was going to ignore this but I really resent being called a yuppie
and rarely have I made an effort to be P/C. I guess you like the old love, honour and OBEY!!
I have a wonderful relationship in which neither person feels the need to impose anything on the other. I feel I have a duty to provide counsel and then support her decisions and I know she feels the same. The need to control someone is inadequacy not love.
