You are MY wife?

I’m going to go out on a limb and say, most men, will at one time or another, be a husband. (And some more often than others.)  So why are some guys so good at it while other guys should be forced into a cloistered monastery?

The idea for a husband post (mine being non-existent) started by watching this youtube video. It is hilarious and very sweet and I don’t recall any husband of mine being so awesome.

So I started looking for other images and quotes about good husbands AND I found almost nothing! Current good husband quotes are almost non-existent. However, there are a bundle of funny quotes addressing bad husbands, infidelity and divorce.

Fine, I thought, I bet there are some vintage magazines or books that give funny advice on how to be a good husband. Nope.  But there is a library of material on how to be a good wife.
