:Hahaha: Carol!!


I agree that feminism didn't change everything for the better. It seems like the idea was that ALL of the old ways had to be thrown out, just because some of them were no longer working. Manners and general, common courtesy seemed to go out the door, too. Men, in general, are afraid to hold the door open for a lady, for fear that they'll offend. And many women seem to think that to prove that they're just as good as a man, they have to act just like a man. It's so messed up. And so many of the old-fashioned ideas that really did work, are just thrown away now. Not because they didn't work, but because they're just old-fashioned. A person doesn't have to be married to know that a marriage can't survive and thrive with just one of the people doing all of the work. It has to be a true partnership of love and respect.

Oh, Lily...I missed your post earlier. Thanks so much for that very sweet compliment! :shy: I really wasn't fishing for one, just wanted to give an example of what I think 'works'. Wink

Savannah, I couldn't agree with your post more! Thumbsup Well said! Applause

ROTFL Carol!! Love the picture.

Well said, Savannah. I know a lot of married folks nowadays tend to live as if they're still single. When you're married, you have to be willing to make some sacrifices and accommodate each other. You can't expect the other person to change his/her living arrangment for you if you're not willing to make some changes for him/her. For example, women always want men to leave the toilet seat down, but men think that women should leave the seat up. So, what do you do? Maybe both should accommodate the other, or just what's the big deal? If it's up, put it down, if it's down, put it up. Think of this marriage is a lifetime thing, might as well get use to these little nonsense. :haha:

In my house, we always keep the seat cover down closed because I once read that when you flushed your toilet, the germs can shoot up 20 feet in the air. YIKES!!

YES!! Or the Oprah she came on and taught everyone how to 'properly' put the sheets on the bed! Whistle


And LOL Lily...that 'leaving the toilet seat up' thing just wouldn't fly in my house! Fact is, we girls are the ones who run the risk of falling IN to the toilet! (Lord knows with a house full of boys, I speak from experience here grinsmiley ).

Same thing at our house. Except that our kitty thinks she's a dog and she likes to drink out of the toilet as well.

There's nothing worse than feeling that cold, slimy porcelain in the middle of the night, when you are half asleep and grasping for anything to keep from going in. I'm never very happy after that experience. mad
