Did you ever wonder what kind of jokes men pass along to other men?
I have one…
I didn’t hack into a man’s email…
Although it isn’t that hard to do…
And it wouldn’t have been the first time…
But that isn’t what we are talking about right now…
The joke was given to me because I’m known to truly appreciate a man’s point of view and humor…
Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl ‘Will you marry me?’
The girl said, ‘NO!’
And the guy lived happily ever after
and road motorcycles and went fishing and hunting
and played golf a lot and drank beer and scotch
and had tons of money in the bank and
left the toilet seat up and
let wind whenever he wanted.
The first time I read this joke, I couldn’t stop laughing.
Does it or does it (yes, I meant to say that twice) really explain “men” in general?
It captures their essence – Men are so carefree, happy-go-lucky, non-worrying, one-thought-at-a-time people. Men and women are truly at opposing ends of the spectrum.
How do we ever get along? Well, we meet in the middle – pun can be intended if you get it.
Compromise requires unselfishness.
Those are the keys to a happy marriage. If both partners are unselfish and willing to compromise, there isn’t anything that can’t be conquered together.
is its solidity.
It is what makes nations great
and marriages happy.
Am I able to give this advice because I have a perfect marriage? Oh please! Does anyone have a perfect marriage? If you do, please email me so that I can interview you for a posting on my blog because we all need to hear what you have to say.
I can tell you I know that compromise and unselfishness is key to a successful marriage because I have read a billion books, listened to millions of married people and am now working on my second marriage. I’ve learned a few things during the last 26 years – some of it the hard way…the really hard way.
So believe me when I say, “Practice being unselfish and compromise” – Everything can’t be your way all the time. That’s so hard for us as women because we know how we want it done and why we want it done that way. We don’t want to have to explain it either. But we need to – we will be better people,
We all can get along if we stop focusing on being right and having it our way
Compromise and unselfishness go a long way.
Remember there may be these little
imperfections in him that
prevented him from choosing
a better wife.
Hmmm…that’s food for thought. How do you rate yourself with compromise and unselfishness?
