My all time favourite name for a yacht: "Yes Dear".

I saw it at Otter Bay many years ago.

There is a story there.

But you really do need to a translation device for what women say and what they mean.

What women SAY and what they REALLY MEAN.

Next June will be our 30 year anniversary; all our classmates have been divorced and remarried a few times. . We are too old to get a divorce and too expensive.

My secrets:
1. Everything in writing, like don't do laundry or fold laudatory, no food shopping or use coupons, and no wedding ring. I clean toilets and floor only.
2. Make more Money than she. I am a good provider.
3. Let her shop and never question what the different between these two pairs of pink shoes.
4. Making her laugh everyday.

Last year, I also stepped down and named her the CEO and I become the CSO because traditionally women live longer than men. She needs learn to run the Company without me.

I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.

The proper response to the order "10 degrees to port" is: "10 degrees port, yes, ma'am" or "yes, admiral" Gee, I never have trouble.

Seriously tho, congrats on 30 years RockDawg!

Supposedly "Aye-Aye" means "I understand and I will obey." Apparently you should never expect such words to pass from a woman's lips. But I've only been divorced once, so what do I know ;-)

Thanks.

A lot compromising, time out, try to understand, and when all failed, laughing it out help. Having a common objective to rise our two children the best way we know how also helped to keep us together.

Aye Aye works for me. I am happy if she just turns the boat 10 degrees to port, really dont care how she answers or in what language.

You can be right, or you can be happy. Do not expect both. Learning this lesson requires some of us to start over with a new wife. This is an expensive lesson.

SWMBO and I have gotten into a habit of repeating all commands/er/suggestions back to the commander, er suggester, which confirms that the lines of communications are open, and also occasionally breaks the tension, especially when the order contains profanity.
