    Well, I dont recommend this to "everyone" but I got a divorce. Really made things less stressful. Cost a bunch but less stress.
    No, some people dont like to fish. I know, they must be tetched, but it is true. I can only guess why they wouldnt want to see other people enjoy the sport. I always feel like it could be a lot worse. You could be running the taverns every night and pickin up ladies of the evening. I wish I had the answers, I would be a very rich person.

    Tell her she's fired. My girlfriend/ might as well be my wife don't mind. Then again she likes to go as well.

    yep I know that feeling. Before My daughter she'd call at 10 pm saying its late when are you coming home & then pitch a fit when i say I was planning to stay till midnight. Now that I have my daughter who's two. So far this year i've gotten to take my tackle out for a walk 4 times during the day only. Its impossible to fish with a 2 yr old, who like me, is a fish out of water.

    Just tell her the way its going to be man....Dont take that kind of flack from her.....Be firm and just lay it out for her and be ready for her to beat you about the head and shoulders with a stick for it.... I got lucky with the one I have. She is just as happy at home with a book in the quiet....:eek:oooh:

    Amen. When I was married my wife would like to go fishing but would get bored and complain a few hours into the trip. And you know how bad that can be when the trip is only 2 hours into a 24 hour trip or longer. So I got a divorce as well. It really is alot cheaper. I can afford the boat that I really wanted. I can afford new gear,when I want to buy it, and the best thing about it is. Fishing has become peaceful and relaxing again. When she would throw a fit when I got home, I would grab a change of clothes and go again. Then when I would tell her why I didnt take her, she would complain even more, so what did I do. I went again. Hunting season was just as bad. So I had to choose. The life I love of hunting and fishing. Or the woman I loved. The woods and water won that battle. Did I make the right chose? I think so. The worst part about it is, she took my fishing buddy, my dog Rowdy. But I guess I didnt get the shaft too bad, I got the boat, truck, house, fishing gear and everything I have bought over the years. Well Someone catch a big ol fish and post a pic.

    My father-in-law told me the night I asked his permission to marry his daughter " Always remember it is easyer to ask for forgiveness than for permission":wink: and I have stuck with that for three years. I cant tell you what to do but, This works for me. If all else fails play her the song from Brad Paisley (I'm Gona Miss Her) She should get the picture!!!!:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    This is the most important lesson you could learn on this website:smile2:. I told my current and final wife that I wouldn't get married till I got a boat. I think she got the hint about how important fishing is. She thinks it is good for me to get out there also. She also gets out there with me every now and then. Though she doesn't care for Asian carp much. She was excitied though when she reeled in a 44# blue. Maybe you need to let her reel in a big one and then she will understand. Now come fall I have to figure on how to get out there with a newborn:wink:.

    After being married for 37 years I can tell you it is a fine thing when your wife's two favorite foods are catfish & venison.:big_smile:
