I lost?

Ever make a bet with your wife about something that she thought she was right and it turns out she was wrong and you still lost the bet?

I'm still confused how that works.

    Marriage.....it's kind of like the New Math. I'm sure someone, somewhere understands it but the rest of us fake it until you make it.
    Long days and pleasant nights,

    It's kinda like if I'm all alone in the forest, with no one around for miles, and I say something. Am I still wrong??   :p

    Rule #1 to a successful marriage 
    When shes right shes right and when shes wrong shes still right. Married 19 years and counting. That was told to me 15 years ago by a man who had been married over 50 years at the time.

    Confusion results when you try and apply logic and reason to marriage.

    I occasionally tell my child bride she's from the planet Nacluv - the reverse of Vulcan, where Mr. Spock was from. There is absolutely no logic on the planet Nacluv....  

    Oh, BTW, 56+ years and counting......   B)

    In May, we hit the 30 year mark and I've been confused since the day the judge pronounced us husband and wife.

    Agreed.  Early on in my 2nd marriage I tried using logic.  "That's your logic"  she says, "MY logic is..."

    I wasted another hour trying to explain that logic isn't subjective.  No result.  My weapons are logic, common sense, facts, mathematics, widely held scientific views.  Her armor is impenetrable to these, they make not a dent.

    Good luck, @0patience , might as well sit back and try to figure out how to enjoy your loss.

    Arguments happen, you bring irrefutable proof to the table.  Then she drops the bomb,
    "I reject your reality and submit my own."
    Then she usually drops the mic and walks away.

    There are two handball courts at the YMCA in Elkton MD. The court on the right has a sign saying: "Court #1 -- reserved on the hour". The left hand one has a sign on the door saying : "Court # 2 -- reserved on the half hour". That's right, they numbered them right to left, Hebrew style. Hence, the following:

    Last night, we had # 1 reserved at 5:00. At 5:30, we were interrupted by a pair of women trying to shoo us out of there cause they had reserved racquetball court # 2 for 5:30. We pointed at the number on the door. They repeated their demand. We pointed to the number on the adjacent door. "No, We reserved 5:30." We pointed at "..on the hour". ... Fast forward five minutes later when they finally gave up on us two ignorant men and flounced in disgust to the next court. 

    We closed the door, looked at each other, and both uttered: "women".

    Rule #1 - The wife is always right.
    Rule #2 - If the wife is wrong, see Rule #1.

    We cops are serial marriers.  After my second divorce, I memorized the above rules and everything is working fine.
