    I have been looking at some of the new folks, some pictures of young couples, and got to thinking. What we need is a thread that explains what us older folks have learned about marriage. Some folks have had multiple wives, so they probably have more advice than me.

    With Spring in the air, Love comes too. Even both our cats have been in heat this spring. The one mare had a colt, etc.

    So Here Go's, All I have Learned In 38 years of marriage.

    !. You cannot change her,She cannot change you. [ Took me 20 years to learn this fact]

    2. When you first get married, you don't have a lot, and most times the wife drives a sad, small car. Well each new car she gets, with all it's options, she will want that and more in the next. Like she goes from a stick to an automatic, all cars there after will be an automatic. The same goes for power steering and brakes, power windows and seats, etc.

    What I'm trying to say is, once your wife gets a Cadillac, she won't go back in an Escort or Vega. My wife's on her third Cadillac. LOL

    3. If your bride to be has horses, you will always have horses.

    4.A Good Woman is Hard To Find.

    Well that's about all I have learned for sure. Don't laugh, some people haven't learned that much.

    Now I'm sure there are lot's of more information/advice we can give the young men on this board. So Fellas let's help them out.

    Is it also true that women are like fine wine? Get better with age or do they spoil. :eek:oooh::tounge_out::smile2:

    I aint a guy, but I'm gonna tell you guys what I keep telling my sons.

    Remember the quote (can't remember it exactly myself but you will get the picture)

    "Aint no wrath like a woman scorned"

    Remember it! Women will hold a grudge FOREVER!!!:wink:


    It will also help you to know that the woman is always right, even when she is wrong, she is right!:smile2:

    The guy I work with took his girlfriend fishing with Catawba worms. After a couple hours of fishing she was still happy with green stains running all the way down to her elbows. He said to himself, "I'll marry this one!" Many years later it's still working.

    Now Guy's, don't let these women scare you from speaking your mind. How are these young pups going to learn.

    Also after thinking for a while, I lied, my wife is on her fourth Cadillac.:smile2:


    I learned this years ago when she was driving an all white Pontiac Grandville Convertible, and when it wore out I got her a Ford Granada. LOL LOL :smile2:

    Boy was that a piece of junk. lol

    Best advice I can give is from an Al Batten bluegrass tune called, Always Marry an Ugly Girl.
    No worry then.

    get to know her true personality before even so much as givin her a peck on the cheek, cause if you get committed to one, then find out shes nuts it can be hard to get out!i was with my former wife for 6 years before we got hitched and i realized i still didnt really know her.

    If it is to good to be true then its more than likely not.

    Remember guys alot of women out there have been coached in how to sucker a man into marriage :crazy:

    My wife for example fished day after day with me and pretended to like my friends then I said I do.

    Now she hates all my friends can barely drag her fishing and overnight fishing trips are almost non-existant.

    I guess I could have done worse she did buy me an Ugly Stik and a 270 rifle for Valentines :wink:

    I will be married for 20 years this june. I can say it has been a real learning expeiciance. if anything that i have learned is to always keep comunication going, keeping stuff bottle up only makes it worst when it does finaly let out. Never raise your voice when "discussing" things. even if your partner is at the top of there lungs. Let them vent out first. nothing and i mean nothing ever gets resolved when your both are hot headed. one phrase you always need to remember " yes dear". it takes both partners working together to make any relationship work. sometimes you need broad sholders and take the brunt of the load others times it will be your partners turn. always support and re-enforce your partner in there endevors. My wife is working on her second masters and i do what ever i can to give her free time to get her papers and studing done. in the end it will benifit us. My wife supports me in my endenvors as well she suggested me starting a guide service, she did all the cooking at the waterfowl youth event i sponcered, and she always helps me when i ask. and this weekend she will even help me in an event i am putting on saturday. Flowers are nice especialy for no reason, I cook breakfast every sunday just for her, let her have the lions share of the blankets, and bed too. sometimes it is cool to have the headach insted of her, if you get my drift. giving her that long back rub always goes a long way. If you have young kids take them out and give her some quiet time to do things she otherwise never gets time to do, long baths, naps, or just the quiet house. last think how you would like to be treated and treat her the same way. we all like the perfect idea but in life and relationships nothing ever is perfect, once you understand this it is all cake. jeff

    For the young guy. Keep in mind that there is no creature on the planet more dangerous to your well being than a woman. "Scourned" does'nt make the point. When you say "I do", that's a contract for half of everything you will ever have. If someone murders you they take all. If someone marries you they take half.

    Don't waste time looking for the girl that can make a great biscut. You can learn how to make biscuts. Look for the girl that makes you realize, "I can't do that for myself."

    Look for the girl who makes you look and feel better than you really are.
    Then return the favor.

    Some of you guys are getting serious here. Look at Boots answer.

    After one, working on my third you realize there ain't no answer. Remember that no matter how smart you think you are, they will beat ya in the ground no matter the method you use. Look at OhNo and Cadallacs.

    BG wants to see their purse first or something first. Don't make no difference there it still ain't yours and they will remind you of it time and again, just when you think things are OK.

    Sheila says don't scorn them. That means forgetting to take the garbage out on Friday. Anything worse you do to them is a death sentence.

    My advise is first make sure they are the opposite sex. Ask their Mother or take them swimming first to find out. (I assume OhNo we are talking just one kind of marriage here?- ya never know anymore) Once you find out they are the opposite sex, find out from their previous boyfriends if they liked sex. This can be tricky, some previous boyfriends lie. If the word is that they liked sex, then make sure they don't like it more than you. You want things to be evensteven here and don't want to die too young or have someone continually disturb your nap or football game.

    After that important stuff the advice I have always given and it is 100% Gospel. Make sure they have more money than you already. I don't care if they are ugly as a fencepost or dropdead gorgeous and can cook a goumet meal, they have to have more money than you and you will never "scorn" them or look astray. You might look at their sister, but it is all in the family.

    All good solid advice. On the wife's car, it has to be either Red or White, no other color will do. None of her Cadillac cars have been new, I can not give 60K for a car. lol


    Hey fella's, all women have quirks. One of my wife's is the color of her car.

    Postbeetle,

    That was excellent advice you gave on sex. I had never put that much thought into it. lol

    Bah, I disagree... The one thing that is absolutely guaranteed to totally kill the sex drive in a woman is wedding cake! It doesn't matter what she was like leading up to that, one bite and she is done :wink::tounge_out:
