I say fight fire with fire.

Read her a poem about the ephemeral nature of beauty.

Maybe Joel can suggest a good Haiku.

If she's not happy, call her "heartless" and "superficial". Then bring up every single thing she has done that annoyed you in the past year.

You win again.

Let me are single...or about to become that way.

You could always use the rose petals in some sort of romantic scattering...oh who am I kidding??? Run! Run now!

Actually, it was definately the thought that counts. Hopefully she'll understand what happened. If not, it was nice hearing your thoughts on MA.

Matt, you need to play man's trump card. The 'affable well meaning try hard goon' technique. You know, like the look your dog gives you when it has eaten your favourite shoes, rendering you unable to be angry with him without feeling guilty, even though you know you are in the right.

Perfect this technique, use it regularly, and not only doeas it get you out of tight spots, but it lowers your wifes expectations of you on a daily basis without diminishing her affection.

Work on it Padawan, and your life will become bliss. Now seems a very good time to start.

To grasp

Posts: 6772, Cord!! telling all the guy secrets on open forum.... OK Well, since the ultimate secret has already been reveiled...I'll let you in on 10 years of marriage secrets that ultimately fail:

secret 1. "How to never forget to lower the toilet seat, by never raising it in the first place."

why it failed: aim was not always perfect.

2. Adjust the lie based on her previous truths.

failed: the lies eventually form a perfect outline of the truth.

3. Mixing colors with whites in the hopes you will never be asked to do laundry again.
failure: doh! why did I have to do that with the gi's!

4. Putting iron pans and cutlery into the dishwasher, in the hopes you'll never be asked to do dishes again.
failed: she uses your card to buy new ones.

5. "going out with the guys" = ('dancer entertainment' bar).
failed: Glitter on your forehead and cheek.

I want stems again next year! I'd rather pick up all the fallen petals on the first day, instead of everyday for the next 2 weeks. Great idea Matt. FYI he could have just blamed it on the cats and I would have believed him.
