I wanted to let you in on some marital dilemmas we have had over the years. We have learned to deal with it but, when my husband and I first got together we had some issues to work out. When I look at this list I’m surprised we have lasted this long. I mean some of these offenses could end a relationship. Especially a girl like me who is all Texan.
He is a White Bread Person. I am a Wheat Bread Person.
This problem has been solved by compromising on the Whole Wheat Bread. The logic to this is obviously Whole Wheat is better for you. Enough said.
He is a Mayonnaise Person. I am a Miracle Whip Person.
This problem was not solvable. We get a big jug of Mayo for him because he eats a lot of sandwiches and I get a little jar of Miracle Whip. If I am out I guess I can eat Mayo and if he is out, Tough!
The next problem was totally offensive to me and I have learned to be “okay” with it.
He is a Pepsi Person. I am a Dr. Pepper Person.
This was not solvable either. We get both Dr. Pepper and Pepsi. WE ALL KNOW which one is better! But I keep my mouth shut. I must really love him for that.
At least we agree on one thing, and that is the brand of ketchup.
Nothing else compares.
