You're the Man!!

I saw this and laughed!!








So what do you think? Are you the man of your house? King of the castle? Master of your Domain?

Or is it pretty equal, both husband and wife decides things. This little clip is funny, but I would really hate it if my husband thought this way. Everything my way or the highway.

So lets discuss. Ladies can you be a bit over bearing? Is it sometimes my way or the highway? Do you pout or withhold sex if you are mad or didn't get your way?



And guys you are not off the hook. lol Can you be overbearing? Or are you pretty fair? And how is your wife with the above questions?

I can be such a pouter. I know he feels like it is my way or the highway sometimes.

I know not good, but I need to work on it.

We are actually both USUALLY pretty chill. And I married a keeper... seriously, we both take turns playing lead roll when the other needs to take the back seat for a while! :)

But overall, I complain WAY less then he does ;)

I can't get past your ignorance of your versus you're and it distracts me from the rest of your post!

Thanks anonymous - I will go edit my mistake sorry it distracted you from the rest of the post... concidering it was the very last line. :o)

Sara said...

Oh funny! I LET him think he is in charge, but really we know that I am. LOL

And really, people get uptight over a word?

Danielle said...

Wow, anonymous. Why so angry? Spouse not letting you be in control often enough?

Hi anonymous... This is Shelle creator of this site. I'm okay with you putting you're :) your opinion on here, but if you are going to be tacky about it you should attach a name and even more a URL so that we can follow you back and read every post of yours so that we can make sure you are worthy to cast the first stone :).

We are all a fun group here and would love for you to join with us, but as you will notice we are going to be a little defensive when you attack someone for an honest mistake. Sometimes my fingers just type so fast I make little mistakes like your and you're. I bet if you read through some of Missty's other posts you would see she is not ignorant about it :)

I hope you can get past that and have a better day!

Anonymous the grammar nazi: Really? You couldn't have found a more polite way to point out a typo? Sheesh.

Anyway ...

I actually know couples where the husband is pretty damn "king-of-the-castle" ... and to be honest it makes me cringe every time. I cannot imagine being in a relationship like that.

Missty said...

1st Anon - Yeah many of us women can be pouters, at least you see you have an issue with it and now can work on it. I know I have issues I need to work on.

Shelle- Isn't that the best way - give and take. One can sit back and relax and then the other spouse can take the lead when needed.

Sara - BINGO! LOL


Danielle - your funny.

ZenMom - Oh I so know what your talking about. My dad was that way. ugh, My mom had to wait on him hand and foot. Ask for permission, etc. makes me cringe. But I guess it works for some? I would love to hear about it.
Maybe someone will post about it today??

some people are dumb... I'm just saying.

In our house we joke that Mommy rules the castle. Mostly in fun, because really, we compliment each other. There are times when I feel like I have to take charge, but the longer we are married the less I feel that way. We are partners, doing this whole marriage and parenting thing together.

I dated some domineering guys...didn't work out. I don't like to be controlled. Marriage should be a partnership. Working at it together.

One last thing and then I'll get off my soapbox for today...

I have a couple of friends who wouldn't dare to get dinner on the table late. Their husbands would F.R.E.A.K! I am pretty sure the control factor is off the scales in both marriages and it makes me sad.

Veronica and I are pretty much equals in the house.

As we tell the kids, they don't live in a democracy, it's a benevolent dictatorship. And we're the dictators!

We are pretty much equally yoked... or try to be anyway... There are times where one seems to "feel" like they are carrying more (usually me) but that is a complaining thing I get into...

never withhold the intimates.. that's something we talked about and decided at the beginning..

I come from parents who were father overbearing and domineering but even after their 39 years of marriage, they have totally changed... a little.

were a TEAM here...
although there have been times that each of us has used the VETO card.
