    Hint: their really happy to get rid of you, no matter how they may act other wise. Start buying them crap and that's how your life will end up....CRAP.

    Keeping your better half happy

    Being present when you are home helps. My wife didn't think it could get worse as far as my gear addiction and hunting ......then I got hired by Eastmans. Be thee when you are home it goes a long ways.

    We got married Oct 5 wich is opening day of deer season for rifle in Nv. I told the wife the same thing, I won't be home. That's was fine for a few years then I asked her to start coming with me. She did. Got her hunters safety and now she's killin bigger animals then me. She takes vaca but stays close to home with our 10 year old while I work during the summer. Never really had to do anything special to make her happy, at least she never asked I just did things for her when I got home or before I left or even both. I'm happy she will be with me on three hunts this year.

    Happy wife happy life, man ain't that the truth.

    Some good advise. Good topic. I do get distracted at home and am not present sometimes. My wife has been pretty supportive because I come home pretty happy. I just need to talk her into going along. She can out shoot me and is pretty handy with the butchering, so I wouldn't mind being the camp cook for a couple trips. It would be fun.

    Married 40 years next month, and yes we were teeenagers...well, I was 4 weeks into my 20s, but she was 19, and we're not even from the South!

    I read a good book someone at church gave me called The Five Love Languages, which are supposedly 1) words of affirmation, 2) physical touch, 3) gifts, 4) deeds of service and 5) quality time. Most people have one or two that stand out and are much less affected by the others. If you and your wife differ, which we certainly do, you can put a lot of effort into trying to show love and wonder why in the world she doesn't feel loved.

    When I learned that my wife's strongest two were deeds of service and quality time, followed by gifts, that really helped because those are really not mine at all and it helped me learn to show love the way she feels loved.

    So, with that in mind, if I get my honey-do list done before I go hunting, maybe do something she doesn't expect, spend quality time with her when I am not hunting and bring her back a little something, that all goes a long ways. We also go on vacations together but a regular walk together in the evenings probably matters as much.
