My Advice to Hollywood

text size A A A

If at first you don’t succeed, do you try, try again? Ask any couple married longer than 7 years what the secret to their success is, and the man will tell you, “Well I didn’t kill her when I wanted to”. Didn’t kill her indeed. Merrill and I have been together for 22 years, married 20, happily so for 5, and I can tell you it is by far easier to repair a relationship, than replace a relationship. In this, the year of the Hollywood breakups, I thought I give a shout out to those who now find themselves single again, after months of marriage. Perhaps, I can offer them a word….just to help them…..in their next marriage. God Bless them.
1. Make up sex is always better if you have something to make up for. He’s probably picking a fight on purpose. Go for it.
2 Adjust your aim. You don’t really want to hurt him, just nick him, so he knows you’re serious.
3 Ignore the public scratching. There are far worse things he can be doing in the Wal-Mart aisle.
4 You can hit him in the wallet, but don’t touch his Bears football. That’s just hitting below the belt.
5 Yes we all know the Cubbies suck, he knows it too. It’s not necessary to remind him daily that he supports a losing team. You probably watch the Kardashians….Just Saying.
6 A man’s home is his castle, the toilet his throne. You are NOT the chambermaid. Make him clean up after himself. Trust me on this. It will prevent many arguments, and unnecessary insults against his manhood.
7 He probably really DOESN’T see the socks, in the middle of the floor, on top of the pile of clothes, on fire. Give him the benefit of the doubt. EVERY TIME.
8 Yes, he is rising up his son to be just like him. Could be worse, could be like YOU.
9 His mother is off limits. No exceptions.
10 One word: EGO. Men are the hunter’s, gathers and spider killers of society. Make them feel like the most important person in your world, and he’ll die for you.
Contraire to what ever Harlequin novel ever told you, Love, in a relationship is not enough. There must be respect, a mutual agreement that when arguing, some subjects, (like his mother) are off limits. Merrill always says that when we argue, it’s our love language…..I mean, I guess, but it is true that even in arguing, the lines of communicate are open, even if hostile. Understand that the person to whom you pledged your undying commitment to, may not perfect, but you chose him, and he is your partner. Go with THAT as a foundation, and all things, can be forgiven. Okay, gotta go. We’re grocery shopping this am, and I need to make a list. Otherwise, I’ll end up with 5 bags of chips, beer, and hotdogs. I suppose #11 should have been, “Never send him grocery shopping alone. It will not end well for you”…..Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your Thursday.
