Default Marriage is all about compromise..

This gave me a chuckle this morning when I asked my wife to be the below question.

Me - I'm thinking about getting a new Drum kit
WTB - Are you out of your mind??????????????????

Good old compromise..

Sounds like my wife. I might have a chance at new drums after we become debt free and buy a newer, nicer house. Until then, I dare not ask.

I would ask my wife, but not my wife to be. And get that pre-nup.

This is where you messed up,

the conversation should go:

You: Wife, I think you should get those shoes you've been wanting

Her: Yeah? Really?

You: Sure. While you're at the shoe store picking them out, I'm going to go down to the drum shop and look around.


Works every time.

I think you are right about getting out of debt first. After that, you can buy a new set - cash, so you own it free and clear!

Same here.

I was just about set to pull the trigger on a new kit until we had a rather expensive summer...
-New AC/Heat Pump
-New carpet, furniture, part of a wall in the basement (minor flooding)
-Dog surgery

If 2011 is kind to us, I'll get that kit soon.

Don't get me wrong. I love my drums. I'd like to get a newer set of hook lug Absolutes in White Luminescent Sparkle.

Wives love drums, They just don't want you to own any!

That just proves she's not right for you.

Stay single.

We have a perfect relationship. We made an agreement when we got married. She would make all the minor, day to day decisions, & I would make all the big decisions. To this day, there have been no big decisions to take!
