BEHIND EVERY MULTI-TASKING WOMAN...

...is a man (the AGE-OLD saying is reversed, obviously...we are the NEW AGE women, are we not?)

I have a husband who (till now), loves me a lot. I also have a husband who criticises me a lot. Oh, they are one and the same person (till now, at least).

And although I appreciate the love and crib at the criticism most of the time, on retrospecting (on the belated and auspicious - to shopkeepers - occasion of Women's Day) I realised I should value the criticism as much as the adoration.

Why?

Because the spouse's criticism...
...keeps me grounded. (Too much flattery swells the head.)
...gives me a challenge. (I thrive on 'TO-DO-BETTER' lists.)
...gives me a chance to fight back. (Shouting is a good stress-buster.)
...has become such an inextricable part of my daily routine that I would probably die of shock and deprivation if he changed suddenly and became all 'red roses and diamond rings'!
...lets us enjoy the process of making up after a bout of accusation-flinging and screaming match.

Now, I am not going to tell you how!!!

HAPPY WOMEN'S LIFE!!!!

Su,you are totally right...a bit of fight here and there is a must..plain and simple relationships would not carry any spark !! And LOL at shouting is a stress-buster..specially on a spouse who is the only person you can claim is totally YOURS !!

Reminds me of ,
Nindak niyare rakhiye ,aangan kuti chhabaye .......by Rahimdasji but , we women carry it even further by keeping Nindaks in our own houses .

Greg is always in an upbeat frame of mind. He loves to laugh, but sometimes... I'm on the receiving end of his jokes. If I'm in a good mood, I go with the laughter, but catch me in a bad mood and it's none to funny. :)

Love the last line.
My husband never criticizes me, he just looks at me with utter disgust and walks out. That makes me mad and I plot revenge all day. Which helps me to exercise my otherwise lazy grey cells.

Meira said...

Please tell that to my husband too. He is eagerly waiting for the day when we'l stop fighting. despite being told the day will never come!Sigh

Vivek Patwardhan said...

You got the old saying wrong! It is "Behind every successful man is a woman and behind her, his wife!! :)

Enjoyed reading your post,

Vivek

lopamudra said...

that is the way he always showed(or concealed)his love for you...if he changes, would he be the man you married?

SUFFIX said...

Well defined perspective, i should appreciate it!!

Tamanna Mishra said...

ROFL! And trust me I have come to believe that husbands that criticize are often better husbands that talk roses and diamonds.

And I can't really imagine a life without bickering and arguing and the fun of making up that come as a direct aftermath :D
