So someone on my friends list (you know who you are) posted that "to keep your marriage brimming" quip from Ogden Nash. I couldn't remember if there was more to it so I went and looked it up. And I found this. Appropriately on a site titled "All About Cheating".

Keep Your Marriage Brimming
Two secrets to keep your marriage brimming.

1. Whenever you’re wrong, admit it
2. Whenever you’re right, shut up.

The above quote, I received in my e-mail today. I agree with that guy one hundred and one percent!

I don’t know and I don’t think I will ever know, why women pocess that uncanny abilty to contradict every single thing a man says or every damn decision a man makes. The have this inborn instinct to always have the last word. No matter what you say, whether it is the undeniable truth or whether it is the ultimate fact, they somehow have the right contracticting statement to make at the end.

Be wary of denying them those rights, or all hell breaks loose and you will end up being boycotted for the rest of the week, for ‘Hell hath no Fury Like a Women Scorned’. Never scorn your women if you know what’s good for you and your mental health.

Let them have all the credit for whatever you done right, but admit it’s your miatake when things turn awry. Even though you made that decision based on her ‘last words’ because you did not want to scorn her.

Of course once a while, you have to make your stamp on certain things. Things that effect the very livelihood of your existence. Decisions that you know are extremely important, too important to let her have it her way.

When this decisions are proven right, it is with utmost importance that you shut that big mouth of yours up! Don’t go bragging how smart you are in front of her. She wouldn’t like it.

You being smarter that her, I mean. And she will feel scorned again. So shut up!

Follow these 2 simple rules and you will live happily ever after. You might even find her perfoming better in bed!



That guy writes stuff on a site about couples who cheat on each other? Shocking. Seems like he knows so much about humans, relationships, and communication.
