Maxi Pads…

Have you ever purchased any of these for your wife?

I grew up in a large family, two older brothers and four sisters, where I was the youngest. So when I was of age, around 10, I was often sent to the store by my mother or my sisters. My mother typically wanted me to get eggs, milk, cereal or bread. My sisters sent me to the store for “PADS”. As a young boy, I had no idea what “PADS” were. My sisters would send me to the store with an old box of “PADS” that I could use as a benchmark. Now bear in mind I had no idea what these were used for..thus the funny looks as I stood in line to purchase them were puzzling.

Even once I realize what they were used for I didn’t immediately stop going to the store for my sisters. I simply asked the, bagger – as they snickered – to “Please Double or Triple bag these”. However, my sisters were immensely grateful that they had a brother that would put what little manhood – I was 10 – on the line to assist them in their time of need.

As a husband, I am often sent to the store. Now guys I’m sure you can relate or have been in this situation yourself; you are in line about to ring up the first item and you get a call from your wife and she says, “Can you get me some pads”. You begin to scream inside, “NNNNOOOOOOOO, not pads, anything but those”. You begin to think what if someone sees me in the “PAD AISLE”. This feeling of dread is felt by most men. But, I have a different perspective.

How does it make your wife feel when about you? My wife stated, “I really appreciate it when you do this for me, one I feel special and two, I know you are secure in your manhood when you buy them for me.” Guys, I can remember one day when I purchased some “PADS” the cashier made such a big deal about it. She told the other cashiers and the Store Manager (Female) standing within ear-shot, “I wish my husband would do this for me.” It’s the simple things within a marriage that make your wife feel special.

So go ahead, ask your wife if she needs any “PADS” and Go get em boys..

Bad news

OK Guys, I’ve been getting a lot comments and emails about Steps #3 and #4 giving your wife some bad news. Lets do a quick recap for Steps #1 and #2:

(1) First let’s define – Bad News. Guys, hopefully you know your wife and her threshold to issues. The scale is from 1 to 10, with 10 being a great threshold for bad news and 1 being a low threshold. Please get a better understanding of this issue first.

(2)Second, you have to realize that no matter how strong (emotionally) you think your wife is, she is not. Most women still have that little girl inside of them, that’s needs to be protected, that needs emotional security that longs for affirmation from a male figure. So, please understand that armor of strength from your wife is a façade. She is not the callous, insensitive, uncaring person you think she is. I know some of you are saying, “Steve, you’ve never met my wife.”

Now for number #3:

Money in the Bank – Guys how much money do you have in the bank. No, not your Bank of America account, but the “Bank of Wife”. The biggest problem with most husbands, myself included, is we continously make withdrawals, emotionally, from our wife and expect her to be ok with it. This leaves our bank account in a deficit. Consquently, you must take a quick assessment of your account, if its negative, best believe that her reaction to the bad news will not be that great. If you have a positive bank account, then her reaction, depending on the severity of the news may allow for some grace.

How do you make deposits? First you limit the number of withdrawals and realize that you cannot spend all your money on Saturday, when you just got paid on Friday. Wives love the simple things. You can begin today by, “SINCERELY”, doing some of those little things she has asked you to do around the house. Also, after being in the military, I am a big believer for being on the offensive and the preemptive strike as often and as much as possible. This means you have to be proactive in the household:

(1) GIVE THE KIDS A BATH!!!
(2) DO THE DISHES
(3) COMB HER HAIR WHEN SHE GETS IN THE BED
(4) FILL HER CAR UP WITH GAS
(5) FOLD THE CLOTHES
(6) IRON HER’S AND THE KIDS CLOTHES ON SUNDAY NIGHT

Alright these were free of charge.

Number 4 later…

Bad news

Gerry and I have often been asked the following question, “Hey guys, is there every a good time to give your wife bad news?” In our experience, having had to disseminate bad news in our own marriages, we would say “THERE IS NEVER A GOOD TIME.”

For example, as an entrepreneur, your pay cycle is “Whenever your client’s cash flow is in order’, right or the sales cycle on a big deal takes longer than usual.

As a guy, you did something really stupid, like look at Porn on the family computer and your kids almost viewed some of the pictures. Or you had an affair with another woman.

Now comes the time when you have to tell your wife that your finances will be a little tight, or the dreaded, “Honey, I have to tell you something”. First, why do we say honey, as if it will soften the blow? Second, this statement immediately sends chills up your wife’s spine. It would do the same to you.

So what do we do, when we have to give our wife some bad news?

First let’s define – Bad News. Guys, hopefully you know your wife and her threshold to issues. The scale is from 1 to 10, with 10 being a great threshold for bad news and 1 being a low threshold. Please get a better understanding of this issue first.

Second, you have to realize that no matter how strong (emotionally) you think your wife is, she is not. Most women still have that little girl inside of them, that’s needs to be protected, that needs emotional security that longs for affirmation from a male figure. So, please understand that armor of strength from your wife is a façade. She is not the callous, insensitive, uncaring person you think she is. I know some of you are saying, “Steve, you’ve never met my wife.”

10 Romance Ideas.. July 28, 2007

Fly Kite

Here you guys, these are free of charge use them wisely and have fun with it. You can always take these ideas and put your own spin on them.

1. Touch
Touch your spouse lovingly at least five times a day. Kissing, hugging, and hand-holding are all healthy touch points. Try to make each touch point meaningful, letting your spouse know that he or she is in your thoughts every day.

2. Talk
The average couple talks only four minutes a day. It’s no wonder spouses don’t feel close and loved. Four days a week, plan at least 45 minutes when you can be alone together and do something you both enjoy. These aren’t times to talk about problems, but rather to increase your easy-going time together.

3. Date
One night a week, come hell or high water, you and your spouse should go out alone to enjoy each other’s company. You can do anything, go anywhere, and talk about anything except three things: money, children, and work (unless it’s exciting stuff – for example, I got a promotion).

4. Have a honeymoon night
At least once a month, plan a fabulous night of romance and lovemaking. Plan the details: a wonderful meal; a fun time out on a date; a romantic movie – anything that screams ‘romance’ to you. Make this the recharging night that will advance your relationship beyond words.

5. Bring her flowers that remind you of her and write her a poem, celebrating her.

6. Surprise her with romantic dinner out – don’t tell her where you are going.

7. Take her dancing and treat her as if it’s your first date.

8. Fill the house (or just the bedroom) with candles and flowers, and spend the whole evening along with her.

9. Spend an hour at sunset telling her what you cherish about her and how she adds to your life.

10. Leave a note under her windshield wiper at work.

In Jail

Let me throw out some statistics related to men:

– 50-60% of married men engage in extramarital sex at some time or another during their relationship
– More than 27 million children-39% of all US children-now live apart from their father
– A child with a nonresident father is 54 percent more likely to be poorer than his or her father
– A study of 13,986 women in prison showed that more than half grew up without their father. Forty-two percent grew up in a single-mother household and sixteen percent lived with neither parent
-Being raised by a single mother raises the risk of teen pregnancy, marrying with less than a high school degree, and forming a marriage where both partners have less than a high school degree
– Compared to their peers living with both parents, children in single parent homes had:
– A 77% greater risk of being physically abused
– An 87% greater risk of being harmed by physical neglect
– A 165% greater risk of experiencing notable physical neglect
– A 74% greater risk of suffering from emotional neglect
– An 80% greater risk of suffering serious injury as a result of abuse
– Overall, a 120% greater risk of being endangered by some type of child abuse.
– 90% of all Crimes are committed by MEN
– 100% of all rapes are committed by MEN
– 95% of all burglaries are committed by MEN
– 91% of all crimes against the family are committed by MEN
– 94% of all DUI are committed by MEN

Amazing huh, what are you right to ensure you do not become one of these statistics.
