Hopefully my opinion counts even though I'm not married - my boyfriend and I are working toward a marriage, starting with a healthy relationship. That involves a lot of work on give and take, because people are naturally a little bit selfish, right? We both tend to grumble when we "have" to do something the other wants to do but it's a bit inconvenient and not what we had in mind (I'm mostly at fault for that), and we've recently established a new rule. I realized it doesn't really matter if he goes along with what I want to do if I can tell he's unhappy about it (and I grumble out loud, so again I'm more at fault), so we are only allowed to do these things for each other if we can be enthusiastic about it. Fakin it.
Also...just for anyone interested - I just started working for this Pittsburgh startup called Romeo Delivers. (http://romeodelivers.com/) It's a monthly subscription service for men, just to give them the little bit of help they sometimes need to show their wives/girlfriends how much they care. Alisha, we are actually trying to find people to write about us, if you would be interested?
