100 ways to make your marriage rock!!

Check this out, http://wearethatfamily.com/2012/02/100-ways-to-make-your-marriage-rock/

Im sorry but fuckk that! Writing shiit on my mirror in lipstick, wearing lame shirts, porn proofing our house, look to him to make big decisions (WTF?!), keep the wifes car gassed (huh?!), doodle his name, sit in his lap?!

Seriously, some of those are fine, but some of them are sorta making me wonder who the fuckk wrote that drivel. What do you do/dont agree with?

Re: 100 ways to make your marriage rock!!

  • Don't agree with: reading Bible together, fight naked, texting from across the room, and lay in bed staring into eachothers eyes. The last one seems creepy to me.

    Agree with: taking a break from phones/technology, learning something new together, get (and stay) out of debt.

    Some of those are pretty strange.

  • You must have wrote that drivel you dumb bitch
  • Hah, I rolled my eyes when I saw the post title and was a bit surprised you'd post what I could only assume would be drivel. Thank you for not disappointing me Nebb. Now off to read it...

    What is the point in fighting naked? How would you be taken seriously if you are naked? Fighting isnt pointless if there is something going on and it makes far more sense to fight fair than fight naked. wtf.

  • Maybe they think if you're naked, you won't fight as much? Who knows.

  • I like wearing guys t shirts but not sleeping in them. I hear you on the vicks thing. I have to wear a shirt with that on since I don't want to ruin my sheets.

    Her other posts are very "Husband/Helpmeet" style, so I wasn't surprised by some of them. Fighting naked was the dumbest to me, though.

    Listening to music together through shared earbuds would be a disaster
    Going to bed at the same time would be nice but not realistic since he gets up 3 hours before I do
    The wearing shirts that proclaim your love thing and the associated link was kinda creepy
    The part about letting him make the big decisions and her the small ones bugged me even after I read her rationalization in the comments


    Most of the ideas I did actually like were not exactly new info. I'll admit though that I was turned off by the whole website immediately. I saw a lot of reinforcing of traditional gender roles and if that's your thing that's fine but it's not how my relationship works.

    I dont think traditional gender rolls = a good relationship. Especially if history has taught us anything. Just cause you have a diick, doesnt mean youre smarter.

  • If I wrote my husband's name in lipstick on the bathroom mirror he'd wonder a) why the hell I had lipstick and b) if I'd been trying to summon spirits or do voodoo or something
  • I'm pretty sure h would kill me if I went out in public with a shirt proclaiming my love for him. And why do I need to write his name on the mirror? In case he forgets it? Who's cleaning that mess up? We do try to go to bed at the same time every night. If I'm not exactly ready for bed it gives me time to read.

    Oh man, your pup is getting so big!

    And fvck that. I won;t waste my UD lipstick on writing notes. After N spent twenty years cleaning it, he'd be pissed.

    lol Im reading some of the other blog posts. Theres a book givaway for "good girls guide to sex" and the blurb they chose is killing me.

    "The women who are most likely to enjoy sex are married and religious. In other words, they’re Good Girls! But good girls know that making sex great isn’t about acting trashy. It’s about recognizing what God really designed sex for"

    Thats... presumptuous.

  • Well, sometimes making sex great is all about fornication. I always enjoyed that.

  • this is mind blowingly hilarious and stupid.

  • The one that annoys me most is the "show her you love her and show him you respect him." WTF old school much? So, I only need to be loved, but not respected? And my husband HAS to be respected, but doesn't care about being loved? gross.
  • Re: Fighting naked.  I agree that that's stupid. It reminds me of that Mitch Hedberg joke:

    "I got into an argument with a girlfriend inside of a tent.  That's a bad place for an argument, because then I tried to walk out and slammed the flap.  How are you supposed to express your anger in this situation? Zipper it up really quick?"

    I miss Mitch.

  • The porn thing is rigoddamndiculous to me. I don't believe that porn is a sin, nor do I believe it's a threat to a marriage. Certainly it CAN be, but I would never say porn=doomed marriage.

    Maybe I have a different perspective, but I actually took the "fight naked" thing to be more of a suggestion for foreplay.  Like, wrestle (playfully) naked.  But if it is what you guys take it to be then I totally agree.  The LAST thing I would want to do if I was mad with Johan would be to strip down.  Not happening.

    I really liked: pick your battles, (mostly 'cause I tend to get upset about stupid things that I shouldn't and it's a good reminder for me) lay in bed staring at each other's eyes (but I'm really sappy like that...), sit in his lap, dance together, and know when to talk and when to hush.  I think timing makes a HUGE difference when it comes to communication.

    Things I shrugged off and think kinda lame: the whole writing with lipstick thing, doodle his name, (Why?) set reminders on your phone, fight naked (if you guys have the correct interpretation, but if my initial reading was right then I like it), wear t-shirts that proclaim your love.  Those were all pretty pointless and/or stupid IMHO.
