Wife Lessons

With wedding season in full swing {and a best friend about to walk down the aisle} I am reminded that in a little over a month my Husband and I will be celebrating our own wedding anniversary {4 years!} which also marks 8 years that we have been together.
Looking back I would have to say that I have learned a lot about being a Wife and in saying that I do not mean that I consider wives as having specific roles, as you might remember from my past post I am not a fan of gender stereotyping, however I do believe that we have roles as partners in a relationship and when it comes to marriage we have the responsibility to uphold our wedding vows and to learn from our mistakes.

Here are a few things that I have learned along the way:

1. You shouldn’t make fun of someone at a country bar for having his collar popped (especially if he’s 6’7″) and then tell him that your husband will beat him up because he told you to f*ck off.

2. If someone bakes your husband cookies as a Thank You and they taste better than yours it’s not a good idea to eat them all before he tries one just because you don’t want him to think less of your baking skills.

3. You cannot de-clutter your Husbands t-shirt collection without asking him first because even if he hasn’t worn that shirt since high school you can be sure he will ask you where it is the minute he looks in the closet.

4. If your husband has an old beater for a car that he thinks is the best thing since sliced bread let him enjoy it and revel in the fact that you no longer have to worry about adjusting your seats every time you hop in yours.

5. You cannot machine wash a tie or THIS will happen…(you can, on the other hand, be thankful that your husband only wears a tie about once a year and he probably wouldn’t notice if you tossed THIS item)
