    YOU control the temperature of your home, you are the captain of the ship so when things are going right it should because you're making them go right. If on the same token just know that when things are falling apart EVERYONE will be looking at you to fix it including your Wife. You are totally responsible for everyone and everything in your household. Your actions could damn your whole family.

    Just remember- EVERYTHING is your fault, because you are the husband. Don't argue or attempt to evade your responsibility. Just say "Yes, dear- I'll try to do better next time". :wink:

    Two words to remember---"YES DEAR".
    After 40 years of marriage, this has served me well.

    Put your dirty clothes in the hamper. Not on the floor next to it. Put back everything in its place from whence you took it. A good example is the car keys. These go on the key rack and not on the island in the kitchen. You will catch a look if you leave them there.

    If you have a dishwasher (hint: the wife is not a dishwasher ;) )
    -- rinse and place dishes in their appropriate places

    If you dont have a dishwasher.
    --You are to wash your dishes, dry them and put them away. If your wife is washing dishes grab a towel and dry them.

    Helping around the house is the price you pay for her handling your dirty underwear!

    Get used to her wanting to "play house" for a year or two if you were not living together before you were married.

    Congratulations!
    Remember, always, that you are partners. You will, of necessity or of choice, have different roles and responsibilities. Those roles and responsibilities will likely change from time to time. Neither partner is superior. Learning to communicate about those things is vitally important for a healthy and long-lasting relationship.

    Do you remember the three ways our ancient brothers served their employers (and the three emblematic representations)? Serve your lady in those three ways.

    There are all sorts of other words for it. Respect, partnership, cooperation, you name it. They all point to the three ways and their emblematic representations.

    Outside of Masonic context -

    Get a copy of the book "The Five Love Languages". Both of you read it. Both of you take the questionnaire that shows how much you value each of the languages. Show each other your scores. Discuss what it means. Plan out how to do more of the top couple that your wife values the most. Understand that the reason your wife does so much of a couple of them is those are the ones your wife values the most. Work at delivering what your wife values the most. Work at understanding that what your wife delivers is what she values the most; once you understand that you'll value it the more.

    She is always right first and foremost . And remember , women commit to memory EVERY mistake you have ever made as if they have a super computer hard drive in their memory banks and in the middle of an argument , no matter what the argument is about and what this past indiscretion/mistake pertains to , she will throw it up at you out of NO WHERE . My wife will bring up things that happened 20 years ago and it leaves me speechless . I have come to the conclusion that they do this to throw us off balance , confuse us and they in turn WIN the argument . When she pulls that stunt , all I can do is throw my hands up in frustration , concede the argument to her and walk off .

    Take your time and learn about each other. Good and bad......

    Understand you can not change someone, only influence their thoughts, and that is no guaranty that they will change.

    Wait for kids, if you can. They are a joy, but also one of the biggest game changers. Make sure your relationship is solid before having kids, too many rush in to having children, and or use children as a way to make things better. Or as fix

    Re: Just married, looking for words of wisdom and

    I had to get to this comment as soon as I saw it.

    Bro Bill's wisdom is astute ... and, most will say cumulative! There and That!


    My advise is go ahead and DO IT! Whatever it is DO IT!

    Don't wait around for her approval and comments.

    Why? Because she will come to believe that you are a sniveling slob always waiting around for her TO MAKE ALL THE DECISIONS!

    Face it now: Whatever, whenever, how, and why you do EVERYTHING you will do is going to BE WRONG!

    There is a simple and singular reason for this.

    YOU ARE A MAN! She knows this and will be waiting to hammer your 'arse into the dirt at every opportunity

    Accept this fact and move on. You'll at least enjoy yourself until she strikes

    SMART men, of among whom Brother Wild Bro Bill_Lins77488 can be counted, learn to use this simple fact that YOU ARE A MAN to their advantage.

    Simply said ... I WAS A MAN when you married me, what did you expect of A MAN?


    NOTE: this information and a good attorney on retainer will afford you some comfort through the coming years my dear younger brother.
