Re: Married Life And Contractor


Problem, women, never heard of such a thing.

Gotta be a money thing. In contracting there is usually no such thing as a steady paycheck and all the women I know cannot handle this. It took my wife a decade to ge t use to the feast or famine style or paychecks. I think my mariage is better because of it. I am never around, always at the shop. So what is ther to fight about, and no time to fight anyway.

You gonna give any specifics of the problems she is referring to? Money, time, attention?

Time and Attention are ALWAYS fixable with the Money. Just be prepared for a Non-Monogamous situation on BOTH sides.

Sorry Fellas.... Facts.

Re: Married Life And Contractor


Tell her if she wants more money to have her get a better job. If she wants to see you more, have her come into the shop and sweep. If she wants more attention, tell her she needs to figure out AutoCAD so she can do your drawings while you attentively dictate measurements to her.

Maybe she should get a second job at Mcy Dee's

Either she will learn this is how it is and appreciate you for who you are and the time she has with you. Or she can go by way of the Dodo. Adiós.

Had to wipe off the screen before posting!

My response is probably a result of being a contractor for 27 years and married for 36. The right women is the key because you are in it together.

Sex anytime you want though? Sure, you just might be alone is all.

Good Luck
Dave
