Good Marriages, and Bad…

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on August 27, 2007


I saw a woman in Dr. Phil – about elder women and younger men. She used to have a toy boy (yes, she called him that!) until she was in hospital for operation and he didn’t show up… He was “lovely” as long as he looked good and entertained her in bed, but not anymore when she needed a human being instead of a “living doll”… >:-> Instead of looking at herself and realizing that SHE had objectified the guy, she expected that her girlfriend (who had a “boyfriend” 14 years younger) saw her “toy boy” the same way she did. To me it was pretty clear that the girlfriend didn’t have a toy but a spouse, a partner, a friend – a human being.

I thought of my brother who is born 1961 and has a wife born 1975. Her best friend dated his best friend at the same time, but the friend was way too “young” to the relationship… My brother and my sister-in-law are doing fine; they have been married for over 10 years and still love each other dearly and can really count on each other through thick and thin.
It’s not about the age and years between, it’s about the relationship, the way people see each other.

I love my wife – I have for 12 years now and I expect to do so for the rest of my life – despite ups and downs, hard times and easy times we have the best marriage I have ever seen, perhaps with the exception of my mother and father-in-law. 🙂

But there are miserable creatures out there, who for some reason just loves to hate their spouse/SO, to a degree that they’d rather stay in a Bad Relationship and attack those of us who are actually in Good Relationships. I guess it’s jealousy or envy.

Toxic people, people with small lives and small minds and sick experiences they have no tools to deal with. Those people end up in bad relationships – the rest of us actually live happily ever after, despite ups and downs and attacks from others on our happinesses.

So Whiney, Rocket Scientist and Catgal go to hell, whatever our personal flaws might be, we live openly, happily and actually very functional lives.

Wedding Rings

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 20, 2007

I married my Wife in 1999. That is the best thing I have ever done in my life. Being married is fun, even after 12 years together (we met in 1995) – not one day goes by without us laughing together. I even think I love her more now than I did 8 years ago. Some days we don’t speak much – but we are there, together in our different activities, both striving to be the best we can.
I frequently loose my Wedding Ring – I take it off during some handsy activity and forget to put it on again, it gets moved to this table and that table, and then I find it again, and put it on, and it feels just like I am getting married again. I wonder if that is the purpose of some times loosing my Wedding Ring – that I am to remember just why I married her and what she means to me?

The Flu – the Curse of Relatives

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on May 31, 2006

I have been slacking on my blogging lately. Well, I have a ‘nice’ excuse – I was implanted with an ugly little bug, by my wife – who in turn had been implanted with it by her sisters, whom she visited a week ago. I hate being sick – it makes me feel like I am engulfed in wet cotton wool or lukewarm oatmeal porridge. Fortunate for us, I bought not one but three packs of ’10 packs’ Kleenex before we both went down with runny noses.

The Curse of Relatives…this is all my sister-in-laws fault. Had she told my wife that she was having this cold/flu prior to her going to visit with them, my wife would not have gone, as she is both asmathic and allergic, which means she is extra vulnerable to diseases that target the respiratory system…but – well, relatives are not always as considerate as one would like them to be.

The only one happy with this is Boris – who just loves to rip our used Kleenex’s apart – resulting in the apartment being strewn with particlerized Kleenex.:-)
This is an image of my brain right now
