Love and Marriage; Part Two

Too much truth in this story.

There was a group of women at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with your husband.
The women were asked, "How many of you love your husbands?" 
All the women raised their hands. 
Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?"
Some women answered today, some yesterday, some didn't remember. 
The women were then told to take their phones and send the following text: "I love you, sweetheart." 
Then the women were told to exchange phones and read the responding text messages. 

Here are some of the replies:
1. Who is this?
2. Eh, mother of my children, are you sick?
3. I love you too.
4. What now? Did you crash the car again?
5. I don't understand what you mean?
6. What did you do now?
7. ?!?
8. Don't beat about the bush, just tell me how much you need?
9. Am I dreaming?
10. If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, someone will die.
11. I thought we agreed we would not drink during the day.
12. Your mother is coming to stay, isn't she??

    1. There is a joke about a guy who stopped on the way home from work and bought his wife flowers. When she met him at the door she burst into tears, recited the litany of all that had gone wrong in her day and ended with "and you come home drunk".

  2. It is the man who should constantly remind his wife that he loves her and how attractive she is to him...women need and thrive on attention; and you (the husband) will be happier - and maybe get more sex.

    it is a win/win.

    1. Actually, I agree totally, though it took me too long to learn it. With or without extra sex, it makes for a better marriage.

  3. My husband doesn't know how to text, so I'd be seriously concerned if I got any response at all. But I do tell him I love him every now and then. I like to think it helps make up for all the times I drive him crazy. :-)

    1. Driving your spouse crazy keeps 'em from forgetting you are there.

  4. She already drove me crazy and it wasn't a far drive.

  5. That's the nice thing about still being relatively newly married. That kind of text is a daily occurrence. Drinking or not!
