Last night over dinner Husband and I got to talking about marriage expectations. I’m sure I brought it up, because I’m always contemplating things out loud with no real direction. I think it stemmed from my idea for steaks, lobster and champaign on Valentines day and his luke warm reaction to my brilliant and sweet idea that I felt deserved something of an enthusiastic reaction.
But really, Husband’s never been known for over-enthusiasm. I know better, but you know, sometimes I fish.
“Well, there are certain expectations aren’t there, about Valentines day?” I asked.
And then somewhere between his reaction to that statement and my rebuttal, I said something like, “There’s expectations in a marriage too. I mean, you have expectations for me don’t you?”
And he said, “No. Not really. I mean, I expect you not to leave me.”
“Well that’s an easy one,” I laughed.
“And, I guess I expect you not be be a stripper.”
“Yeah, so if you get down to it,” he finished. “I guess I expect you not to leave me to become a stripper.”
So I added: “And I expect that you will fix the things I break.”.
“And I expect that you will break things.”
And perfect for each other.I mean, because I would make the world’s most awkward stripper…
Happy Valentines Day weekend lovers!
