What Have You Learned From A Spouse/Partner?

Discussion in 'Spouses and Partners' started by Redneck, Dec 5, 2005.

  1. I've noticed in the Emergency Medicine, and I believe the Pharmacy forum too, there are some pretty good threads on what people have learned from their patients. Well I was thinking it might be interesting to do the same here. Maybe we'll get a laugh, learn what to do, or even what not to do...

    What have you learned from past or present spouses or partners?

    Every presence in our lives, no matter how fleeting, can and does change us.

    That no matter how fat and ugly you feel, there is someone out there who thinks you are beautiful.

    That the last phone call of the day is the best.

    That it's worth failing a test if what you blew off studying for makes you smile for weeks on end.

    That I need to be a NICER person.

    That sometimes love just isn't enough, and that's ok.

    I learned how to make a casserole out of macaroni and cheese, chili, and hot dogs.

    Also, men like being acknowledged for doing housework.

    It's good to live far away from in-laws.

    Damn straight!

    I learned that gag gifts are not appropriate for Valentine's Day, no matter how asinine the "other" thinks that holiday is or how good their sense of humor is. Get a nice romantic gift, regardless. Trust me, it's been "empirically determined!" :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Yeah, that was a dry V-day... if ya' know what I mean... :(
