What Makes a Husband Easy to Live With?

Martin the Approachable
Martin, my husband, has a close friend, John, married to Kate. Kate said to me the other day, "I wish you'd ask Martin how John feels about us all going camping together."
Ask Martin? Why not ask John direct? I did not put this question to Kate, but in my heart I sang paeans of praise of Martin the approachable, the responsive.
Here I had been blissfully ignorant of a remarkable quality that makes life with Martin as comfortable as an old shoe. Anything from dollars to doughnuts I can broach. No reticence, no explosion; just response, fair and frank. We can disagree with zest but somehow no debris from the past encounter clutters up the future approach.

He Argues with Me
Bless my husband - he argues with me! He considers my opinions worthy of refutation. Dick will listen attentively to my reasons why the mountains are the only sensible place to spend the summer vacation, and then ever so courteously he begins to pick my logic apart, to show me, with infinite patience, meticulous care and flattering seriousness, where I'm wrong. My, but it's easy to live with a man who takes the trouble to argue matters out with one!

Something to Say
A gift of gab helps a lot. What a difference it makes to a wife who has been in the house all day occupied with seemingly petty and certainly irritating duties to have her husband come home with something to say - interesting news or trifling gossip, thoughts, impressions, anything at all but that stony silence that makes one want to scream: "Talk, talk, for heaven's sake, talk!"
We often hear of the wife who talks too much but don't forget to be sorry for the wife of the husband who talks too little.
