I think you may have the wrong end of the stick. What I typed was very much tongue in cheek. My better half and myself have been together for the best part of forty years, during which time there have been so much laughter in our lives. We take the mickey out of ourselves without malice. Humour is a large part of our lives, making each other laugh is part and parcel of our life together, our jibes to each other are made with a smile on our faces, there is no malice and no offence is taken. Luckily, our kids have the same outlook on life.[DRIFT] [/PERSEC]
I know that one close friend has a similarly “robust” relationship with his own wife, to that which I have to endure with Mrs RCT(V) TWO.
As other friends - and relatives - choose to disguise (hide!) the “confrontational” nature of their domestic relationships, I had thought that I was unusual/alone, in having to endure the changed attitude/atmosphere, from that which originally persuaded me to (again) take the plunge into marital “bliss” twenty-two years ago .
Reading these recent comments has been a revelation . . . greatly received .
I clearly forgot my own earlier comment that . . . .
“Women are all the same – they only look different, so that we know which one is ours”
We work on the mantra laugh at yourself first, then others around you will enjoy the banter.
