Excellent article. It's nice to see a man express it so well and with such understanding.

Jan, thanks for that, really. I can't tell you how many times a week I hear that from my own spouse. "take it easy." "peace." "don't get so upset, I was just kidding."

Wears me out. Glad to know I'm not the only one.

Too bad there aren't more 'real' men out there like the author. I forwarded it to a friend who had endured a particularly poor situation for years. The spouse is now gone but the memories for her linger on. Oh, yes, I too have heard some of these comments made to me during our almost 48-year marriage. I try not to pay attention but, well, sometimes one cannot help but be affected. Great article.

I'm glad you're all liking it! I'd be surprised if there was a woman who had never heard comments like this.
