After reading several posts on page 4 I was going to ask Hunting Wife and Mtelkhuntress, if we should weigh in with a few "what we dont like's"----then Brent comes along with the above post and takes the air right out of my ballonMan, I do not see this ending well for the OP at all. Gotta learn to give and take. With emphasis on the former.
I married into a pair of cats, and I'm mildly allergic to them. So we made some compromises including a cat garden for them to hang in most of the day and keeping them out of the bedroom, but really, not a big deal. When we built a new house cat considerations were built in. Special cat doors in walls to get to litter boxes in laundry rooms and stuff like that, and a new cat garden. Worked well, though the cats are now gone and replaced by horses and ducks (way more work).
Very nicely said Brent--kudo's to you.
I also know that NoHarleuYet knows how to treat his wife and in return that woman keeps a very nice home for him
to echo Brent--it is all about give and take and I found that if I always tried to give more than I took, it came back to me ten fold---and not just in marriage I might add
o.k Dear Abby and I will stand down now LOL
