    I will NEVER understand my wife

    When we moved into our house it has a large laundry room but no cabinets so I built a couple which came out pretty nice and serve the purpose.
    Ever since (about 5 years) my wife has said: " we need to buy some real cabinets because buyers want a really nice laundry room".
    We have agreed that we have no intention of ever moving.
    Anyway , yesterday a friend showed me a place that makes nice, ready to assemble cabinets.
    My wife and I looked at them on line and found that we could get a really nice set of cabinets for a very reasonable price.
    So she said to me "why don't you just build one more cabinet" !!!!!!!
    I will NEVER understand my wife (who I've been married to for over 50 years)

    You ain't ever going to figure a woman out, so don't even try.

    If you've been together for 50+ years, you're understanding her more than you're giving yourself credit for. I'm only at 40 years but I've learned to pick my battles!

    The Virgin Islands look nice, do you have a spare room for rent?

    Your wife lets you choose?

    She already messaged me and said you’d ask me that, and if I valued my life, I would say “no.”

    There's a reason why they live longer than men. They are just better at screwing with our heads than us. My wife said she didn't like brown furniture for the deck. So I look for other colors (brown being the dominant color). Everything I found was too expensive or not the right color. After months of searching trying to please her she tells me she bought some, brown of course, because she knew I really wanted something new for the deck.

    I read a book by a Nobel Prize laureate. He said not to feel bad if you don't understand quantum mechanics. He doesn't, and thinks anyone who says they do is delusional.
    The same could be said about women.

    I have been married 34 years and have explained how thermostats work about twice a year. She has a MS; why can't she grasp a thermostat?

    Doesn't it work like a gas pedal? The farther you turn it up, or down, the quicker the room will reach the desired temperature. Or you can't have two systems feeding a common area, and set one different from the other, and expect both to run the same amount.

    Don’t worry, she doesn’t understand you either.

    We have been married 56 years. My normal response is "Yes Dear".
