    Default Is it worth a divorce?

    I have been offered a pass to attend rather than accompany SWMBO to her best friends' emigration party - however it comes with a significant risk of divorce.

    What are you, a man or a handbag?

    It is settled - I am a handbag.

    I was neatly outmanoevred Friday by a 2 pronged defence;-
    1. As you aren't going to be using the boat next weekend why don't we go down tonight?
    2. I have volunteered you to do the catering for the party next week.

    Have a great trip everyone...... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    you are of course correct - the only way to handle this was as last time; and that worked!

    this whole concept of discussing things you actually intend to do anyway simple gives the other party the opportunity to marshall thier thoughts and resources and escalate the stakes.... [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
