Does your husband know the meaning of give and take?

Or, does he insist that things are always done his way and to his standards? Is he thoughtful and courteous or bull headed and obstinate?

Yes he does, except when it comes to cleaning LOL it's just not his thing! He takes care of the bigger things and I take care of the smaller ones or day to day stuff. We talk about everything and he always wants to hear my view before moving on with it. We work well as a team!

Until yesterday I would have said the same thing about mine. But, last night he really went out of his way to be helpful around the house. He cleaned the floor in our spare room. It really needed to be done, and I didn't want to do it. Some men can change, I guess! Mine is a great listener too. I am happy that we have both found men that can appreciate us!

My wife is sitting here and telling me to answer this. I am thoughtfull, but bull-headed. I can get a little bit pushy, and when she's mad I don't leave her alone, but try to fix it. As for to my standards we both are that way. LOL

That is too clever! Pat your wife on the back and say, "Good work!" I like that response very much. My spouse is much the same way, he won't let a situation alone until it is all worked out. Sometimes that bugs me to no end!

well, honey, My ex had a saying "my way or the highway"..so I chose the highway. Do yourself a favor, NEVER marry someone with OCD and other mental disorders!

My husband is a soft spoken man. He's the silent type when it comes to arguments.. However, when it comes to certain things, he can be quite stubborn. Like for instance, when we choose to dine out, he will choose the place even if I have a craving for something else. And I think since I'm the pregnant one, he has to conform to my wishes. But noooooo... He would only do that once HIS cravings are satisfied. I think that's pretty bull headed. Or when his news is on, you can't even dare to try and pry the control out of his hands.. Then again, he does let me get my way.. Say, if i want to sleep in, he'll just let me and starts with the housework like sweeping and mopping the floor. So by the time i wake up, I don't really have much to do. So basically, yeah.. we do have a give and take thing going on.. but not always do we both get our way.

That is so super sweet shemah! I am sure he is trying to make your pregnancy as comfortable as possible. However, I'm sure he was just as considerate before the pregnancy too. Mine is learning!
