OK, I am going to be real with you now. Get ready. My husband is a “Thinker” an M.D., Ph.D. imagine the brain work in that! He was a professor at Harvard Medical School no less! Some questions on the S.A.T test are even taken from some books he has written. Get the point, see what I am up against?! He deals in data, hard facts, numbers. I have feelings and when feelings meet thinking in a heated moment there can be trouble!
My husband rarely gets angry (which at times infuriates me!). He is logical and has a 10 point plan for everything. Generally speaking I am sweet, nice, considerate, charming …. (I was even nominated for homecoming queen!!) However, there are occasions when I am too busy with work, people, things to do and even a sweet person like me can “lose” it! Then things can get “hot and heated” at my house. Does that ever happen at your house?
I keep thinking does Meryl Streep ever just lose it with her husband Donald Gummer? Or Melinda Gates with Bill? or Pauletta Washington with Denzel? I just bet they do! I sincerely thi
nk if Pauletta, Melinda and Meryl and I lived close by we should start a small women’s group JUST TO COMPLAIN ABOUT OUR HUSBANDS!!! And remember Meryl, Melinda, Pauletta and I are all in our first marriages…so you can see how hard we have tried over the years!! But I tell you that Bill Gates, Denzel Washington and Don Gummer and Martin Moore-Ede can just test us all! And we still love them. We love them a lot. We have kids with them. We parent together. We have “date nights” together, go to movies together. I remember you Meryl, in your movie with Jack Nicolson, the one where you were pregnant and he was having an affair with Thelma and left you! Don, Denzel , Bill and Martin would never do that…that’s a good thing in their favor. I guess we are lucky to have the husbands we do, but of course they are lucky to have us and I think they know it
So I guess it seems that regardless if you are famous or not famous, rich or not so rich, a movie star, artist, therapist, doctor, lawyer, teacher, work for the IRS, a pastor, politician; that whoever we are, if we are married we probably face similar issues in all of our lives and each couple in their own way has to work everything out.
