You,guys all want this man to give in,
Why can't it be the woman?
He should be an equal.
And do what he wants too, right?

I don't think most marriages are as easy as your marriage to Jeff Green.

I do not have a marriage with Jeff Green.

Thread of year nominee. I mean just listen to all of you
Without a doubt.  eja, your post surely helped a lot too.  I've wanted to respond to at least 5 posts so far.  I gave out my max allowable TPs by page 3 and I wouldn't say I normally give them out loosely.  fwf, IP, roy, and others also had some great contributions.


The real question here is who has an argument with their wife about drawers and thinks to themselves "Boy I better see what Celticsblog thinks about this".

So I come home from work last night and the cozy is gone.  Not in the entryway nor in the kitchen.  She moved it into the dining room under the thermostat on this island thing we had in there.  I never go in that room and it is totally out of the way on my way into the house.  I just put my stuff on top of the new dresser thing in the entryway.

Use the drawers but only for the few things that'd you be putting on top. Dont let the drawer fill up with uneeded and unecessary stuff, thats when things start getting scratched broken etc...

If you leave your wallet and keys in there you shouldnt have a problem adjusting.

I have to say Chief's statement of bartering is definitely the best

TP!!! :)

Use the drawers. No one wants to see your stuff. Leaving things on top of surfaces just makes your house look sloppy, she's looking out for your best interest.

I'm a little biased because this is the type of stuff that drives me nuts too, but just trust me she'll be happy with the decision should you make it.

Honestly, look at it this way, if you give in what are you really giving up? Wow you're moving your keys and phone etc. a couple of feet into a drawer, not a big deal, just do it. Then next time there's something you want to do/change she'll remember you giving in on this issue, and chances are she'll be more than reasonable. Women like to know you're willing to cooperate with them and small sacrifices like this go a long way.

This hasn't been my experience. ;)

=====================================

As for Moranis' situation, this is something that he feels strongly about.  It's an engrained habit that really isn't hurting anybody.  If the cozy is small and unobtrusive, I think his wife looks at least as unreasonable as he does.

My wife and I have fights over stupid stuff frequently.  I give in a lot, but I hold firm a lot, too.  I think that if you give in all the time, you end up creating an expectation that you'll always be bull-dozed.  Over time, that type of stuff leads to resentment, which unfortunately leads to all kinds of other problems in a marriage.

Marriage needs to be about give-and-take.  It sounds like Moranis and Mrs. Moranis have a pretty good system worked out, since they rarely fight.  However, if this is the line in the sand for both of them, I don't think the man needs to automatically give in.
