Twelve Commandments for a Miserable Marriage Home Life / Uncategorized

Hello everyone:

I knew a fellow who followed these commandments to a “T.” I hope you don’t know anyone like this, but I would advise not following these ideas if you want to be happy:

Always belittle your wife; point out her every flaw so that she is aware of them.

Show no interest in anything she likes to do; open hostility towards her interests is even better.

When she has a deadline, increase her stress levels as much as possible.

Remind your wife constantly that you are her first, and should be her only, priority.

Show no interest in her life before you; her life began when she met you.

When she is not around and others praise her, be sure not to tell her; praising your wife gives her a big head.

Point out the superior traits of other women. If she’s old, praise younger women.

Invade her privacy whenever you can but ignore her as much as possible.

Humiliate her as often as you can.

Only buy expensive flowers for her when the largest number of people will see them and praise you.

Contradict her whenever possible.

Explain everything; remind her that she’s really very stupid.
