Marriage advice from women

Little Black Dress

At our engagement party, we had two sheets, for marriage advice from men and women. I’m not certain where the advice from men went (maybe my wife hid it… just kidding), but here’s the advice we received from women.

  • The wife is ALWAYS right.
    • Always remind him of that ^^^
  • Give him breakfast in bed
  • Never use sex as a bargaining tool.
  • Once you got him he ain’t gonna change bad habits… or good ones either… we hope
  • Don’t touch the tool box
  • A LBD (Little black dress) never goes astray
  • The laundry basket is where the dirty clothes go. The wardrobe is where the clothes go. Don’t mix ’em up!
  • Forgive MUCH and never go to bed angry
  • Don’t listen to him. Women are right.
  • Utility bills go in his name. Credit cards go in hers.
  • Visa cards are a girls best friend but not when you have to pay for them so get him to do it!! Every girl needs retail therapy.
  • Don’t let your husband touch a tool box
  • Remember to treat the extreme highs & lows of marriage with the attitude of “it will pass” and love bears all things.

How to walk through Steel-Reinforced Walls

From the Avanoo founders, and thanks to StumbleUpon, I discovered How to Walk Through Steel-Reinforced Walls. While sitting in a coffee shop, this guy decided that instead of teaching a little boy who was trying to walk through walls like Harry Potter that it couldn’t be done, he thought to foster his imagination. He took him through the steps listed, as instructions on how to walk through walls – without actually telling him that it could or couldn’t be done. As fantastic a story as it is, obviously some people just don’t get it – including the mother of the little child, who said that his advice was very irresponsible and that he shouldn’t have kids for a very long time.

Shame on her I say! We should do everything to foster people’s imagination in this day and age. As this blogger pointed out – while something might not be possible now, it may be possible in the future. Who would’ve thought in 1920 that we would have a computer that fits in the palm of your hand. It’s the imagination that drives these things – for someone to say “why can’t it be possible! Why can’t I do that?”
