Married Life
« on: August 25, 2019, 08:57:28 AM »
My wife and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary (8-8). She has brightened my life like no other has.

When I started out in this I was completely paranoid and skeptical about everything but I'm all better now.
One of the things I learned was to make certain that we understood each other (completely) in discussions. R/U W have a bad habit of saying they understand you but actually only understand about half of it and will fill in the blanks with THEIR understanding of things. This is where most of our spats came from.

Life ain't nothing but a poker game
And no two hands are quite the same
But I've never seen a winner that didn't bet

I agree with that. I had years of it. Not so much nowadays though.

Many congratulations on your anniversary.  tiphat
