The Man Rules for a Good Marriage

I ran across this recently while I was searching for something else. A lot of "truth" in here from the male perspective...

The Rules
  1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.
  2. Saturday /Sunday = Sports and/or Hunting. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
  3. Shopping is not everybody's idea of a good time.
  4. Crying is blackmail.
  5. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!
  6. We don't remember dates. Mark anniversaries on a calendar. Remind us frequently beforehand.
  7. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question. Men also consider grunts to be answers.
  8. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.
  9. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.
  10. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. We have no idea what mauve is.
  11. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.
  12. We are not mind readers and we never will be. Our lack of mind reading ability is not proof of how little we care about you.
  13. It is neither in your best interest or ours to take the quiz together. No, it doesn't matter which quiz.

I saw this a wile ago and laughed pretty hard. I also thought of it the other night when I didn't pay attention and sat in the toilet. ;)

There is some great wisdom here for those "who have ears to hear"...:-)
