People (who haven't met my husband) often say things to me like "Wow, I can't believe the things you say about your husband on Facebook, my husband would kill me!" and things along those lines. And by "things" they mean me putting a post up on FB saying "my husband is being a giant PITA, I might have to kill him" etc.
I think they feel sorry for my husband. I think they imagine he is a timid mouse who is beaten down by his bossy wife who rules the roost. That he is a sensitive soul who is surely hurt, or offended or fearful at what I write. The truth is the complete opposite of this. If you should feel sorry for anyone, it should be ME!! My husband is the most stubborn, confident, strong, strict, assured, tough, un-shy, full of shit guy you will ever meet. He is the first guy I have ever met that absolutely will NOT let me boss him around. (Which is why I married him.) He is impossible to boss around. Or to faff around actually. He is not arrogant, he is just completely comfortable and confident in who he is. And in our relationship. He knows I think he is an ahole sometimes, because I tell him (and not just on FB). And he (mistakenly) thinks I am an ahole sometimes too. Which he is not shy to tell me.
If you knew my husband, and our relationship, you would not feel sorry for Marko AT ALL. In fact, even though I am a giant PITA with a million issues and it can't be easy being married to me, you would feel sorry for ME because of how stubborn and STRICT he is. He is not an easy guy at all. Totally untrainable actually. Example: The Towel system. I wrote that post two years ago. This past week he used my hair towel as the bath mat. HE PUT HIS FEET ON MY HAIR TOWEL. When I moaned at him for not using the correct towel system his response was "I have my own towel system - I see a towel and I use it". And this sums up our marriage perfectly. I am anal/OCD/full of shit and he does his own thing anyway. It works perfectly.
(Also: my husband is on FB, so whatever I put up about him he can see immediately. He either ignores my note or else he puts a teasing response in reply)
So please don't feel sorry for my husband. He is more than ok. He has to be, he is married to me :)
