    Even a Psychologist would not be able to break down what the hell a wife is thinking most of the time. I have lived with mine for 4 years and have no idea what she is thinking. You can't expect a person to sit with a wife for an hour a week and figure out what she is thinking.

    My ex and I went to a therapist. Female by the way. We quit going as soon as the therapist took my side.

    Unless the psychologist is a woman also and then they will just talk about how level headed she is and how off your rocker you are. I have been married to my lovely young bride for almost 11 years and there are days where I think I have a better chance of playing pick-up sticks with my buttcheeks than I have of figuring her out.

    Pick wisely my friend.....Pick wisely

    Not trying to brag, but my wife gets it (ahh heh heh). She loves ISU games. Her only complaint is we can never find babysitters so she rarely gets to go. While she may not understand football as well as I do, she loves to go to games.

    Would you please have her give my wife a call?

    Just curious. Your not a gay male are you. Then this whole statement would make sense to us other married guys.

    (Married 10 years)

    I'm thuroughly convinced that there are somethings that women will never understand about us men, (toilet seat, underwear on the floor, scratching when it doesn't itch, etc) just like there are things men will never understand about women (grooming expenditures, endless chatter, bedtime headaches, looking fat questions, what are you thinking about questions, etc.) AND THATS OK. Both men and women need to accept this.

    To me a good wife will understand that you have serperate interests that don't involve her (however crazy those interests might be). Any attempt block or belittle this interest is either a cry for attention or a power play for control, IMO.

    Luckly I have a wife that is a bigger Cyclone fan than I am... and doesn't read Cyclonefanatic.com

    I can assure you I am not. She was never a football fan until I started taking her to games, now she really gets into it. Originally she would go because I wanted to go so badly, but now she looks forward to it. Of course once the weather gets cold, all bets are off.

    Maybe she just loves spending time with me, that is probably it....HAH!

    My wife doesnt really care about sports. She is a Hawkeye, but doesnt care about them. (which is awesome btw) We go to games and she has fun, but she doesnt exactly get pumped about it like I do. I dont exactly get pumped about her scrapbooking either so its fair. =)

    Re: Why don't wives realize.......

    My wife actually likes to go tailgating. Then there happens to be a game that interups her tailgating. Then more tailgating after the game. She does cheer and roots for the Clones though. So I suppose that's all I can ask for.
