Relationship Problems: Solved!

Marilyn's father has just passed some wisdom on to me that I think will help out my relationship with Bauer. Apparently, there are four key phrases that are essential to a happy relationship:

1. Yes, dear.
2. No, dear.
3. I'm sorry, dear.
4. Whatever you say, dear.

The secret fifth rule is to NEVER say, "I'll never do that again," because then they'll know you're lying.

I'd skip the "dear" part. I know from growing up, that word can sound patronizing, rude, angry, mean and downright resentful. Other than that, I'd agree =)

Hmm. That's a good point. What about doing it Spike-style?

Yes, pet.
No, love.
I'm sorry, little bit.
Whatever you say, Slayer.

...Marilyn and I are watching WAY too much Buffy.

Another requirement for a happy relationship are separate bathrooms. Makes a world of difference!

BLS I love Buffy! In the weeks after i had my baby I pretty much watched every episode in reruns. That comment (Spike style) had me ROFL. Thanks for the memories.

Eeek! Never, ever say "whatever you say dear." That's like saying, "I know you won't let go until you get your way, so whatever." If you want to stay in her good graces, try a simple, "okay" or "that sounds good".
