She seemed to be a bit defensive and to take issue with my post. She said, "If you are going to say that about husbands, why have a wife then?"
But I forgive her because she hasn't been married long enough to know just what a pain in the ass a husband can be, but mostly because when she said that, I went, "Aha! Another idea for a blog post."
When I told Hubby about her response and threw out the question, "Why have a wife?, he was quick to respond: "For sex."
So as I clear my throat, I must say, I rest my case. Husbands are very basic.
Neil Young sums up a man's basic needs:
And, in general, that's why a husband thinks he needs a wife. So we need to get out of that whole "maid thing."
I can easily write about why a husband needs a wife and what a wife is good for, besides sex and maid services. So here goes. And thank you to my darling daughter.
And by the way, this is not just aimed at the man/woman relationship. This is aimed at whomever considers themselves a husband or a wife.
So without further ado...
Why have a wife?
This is why a husband needs a wife:
---A husband needs a wife to dress him.
We all know that husbands have terrible taste in clothes and even when their taste isn't terrible, they tend to stay with the same style for years. Sports logos and baseball caps often abound. A wife is needed to make sure they are both not embarrassed by Hubby's clothing choices.
Amy Schumer gives you a hint of what we wives are dealing with.
---A husband needs a wife to decorate the house.
---A husband needs a wife to bring home the bacon.
---A husband needs a wife to do stuff with.
---A husband needs a wife so he has someone he can trust absolutely.
and we reply, "Oh, this old thing? I've had this for ages," that doesn't really count as not being trustworthy. That happens because husbands are big grumps about Macy's bags coming into the house. No, I'm talking about important things like always telling you the truth about how you look, what you should be doing with your life and how to put up the Christmas tree lights.
--- And speaking of the Christmas tree lights.
