Last weekend Jolynn and I had the pleasure of meeting a wife of one of the marines. I do use the word pleasure very loosely.
After this gal left Jolynn and I have a very interesting conversation about how to treat your husband. We then continued to laugh and we are both glad that we are not 19 any more.
At 19 I did not know shit about being a wife. At 38 I am still learning, but man my relationship with Rusty is so much better then if we had gotten together at 19.
At 38 I know better then to run my husband down in front of his peers. At 38 I know better then dress like a tramp when we go out. At 38 I know better then to get drunk and make an ass out of myself.
Now that I am older I know that there are little things that I can do to make my husbands day's a little bit brighter.
I know that by packing Rusty a lunch,.... well, that free's up some time for Rusty.
I know that when my husband is having a bad day hamburger help will make him feel better.
I know that by making sure that his laundry is done and folded for him, that he will be set for his work week.
I know that by sending him a simple e mail to say I love you, well..... that just make his day.
I know that by holding down the fort and taking care of things at home well..... that is one less thing Rusty has to do and worry about.
Jolynn and I have both learned that treating our men like kings will reap us huge rewards.
Our husbands are more attentive to us and they worship the ground that we walk on.
I told Jolynn that it was after our conversation that I realized why Rusty does some of the things that he does. Rusty did not have to rush home and go get my meds and buy me all the food for the brat diet. Amber could have done that.
But instead, Rusty left work early, came home and went and got my meds. Rusty made sure that there would be no penicillin any where near me. Rusty really showed his love for me that day.
Another reason we do not want to be 19 again is because our sex life is great. At 19 you can not paint each other with chocolate body frosting and then laugh because your bodies are stuck together!
I so wish that when I was a young wife that someone would have told me several things to do and not do. However, I have lived and learned and because of that, I think that I am a much better wife.
I better get off here and got rape my husband before he goes to sleep.
