    You crazy mid westerners. I wonder who West Virginia makes fun of.

    Probably Poland. Although I don't really know for sure; but that IS an interesting question. So who does Arizona dump on?

If not I don't do it. She does the same.
    Ah, there you go making all the women fall in love with you again.

    Californians mostly. Yeah, Poland seems to get a bad rap, which is sad as I have never met a dumb Polish person.

    Thanks, but it just seems obvious to me. I'm not sure why all men don't do it. Why marry someone if you do not want to make them happy?

    Texas pretty much just dumps on everyone else, but especially Okies and New Mexicans.
    I've never seen the use in doing something that you know will not make the other happy. If it WILL cause marital strife, why do it? Why not do [something to prevent the strife?] It's communication. "Hey dear, the guys wanna hang out tonight. Do I need to bow out?" "Hey dear, [IT Guy] want to come over, is that kosher?" all the way down to little stuff, like "This sauce is missing something, what do you think?" If I wanna fight, I'll pop in a video game. If one's irritated the other, we hash it out as close to immediately as possible (after the offended party cools down and we're in private again.) If it's something big, like when I couldn't make my share of the bill payments while unemployed, we let the other know and tackle it together. I hate using Christian metaphors, but it really is the "equally yoked" lesson. You're in it together. You can either communicate and both pull in the same direction, or pull in opposite directions and get the whip laid over you.

    Excellent points. Of course, it does go both way. Taking your guys want to hang out example - I knew with my ex that any time anyone wanted to hang out the answer was no. It was her way of controlling me. "Oh, sure you can go. I guess I will just sit here bored and alone..." Of course, if you do go you hear shit about it for the next month. If you don't go it perpetuates the cycle.

    Well, yeah. That's the reason most of my relationships lasted at most a month. If you aren't willing to play ball, I'm leaving the game. The 3 that lasted the longest were with sane males that realized a relationship is a partnership. (Well, the 2nd warped that, but that was a mistake I made and got out of.) I had a few try to guilt trip me on shit like that and they didn't last long when they'd hold a grudge.

    Good for you. We have a 'no manipulation, no guilt' agreement which is working for us too.
