"Conversely I knew women who I would describe as ''High Maintenance'' (who''s husbands adored them) b*ll*king their hubby because he didn''t hoover under the sofa, didn''t squeegy the shower, demanding jewelry, weekends away, meals out, designer watches and handbags for birthday/Christmas pressies and those red sole shoes I don''t know who but fancy designer. And there was me, didn''t ask for or want anything, ANYTHING except a bit of quality time."

This made me think WR. I was the guy with the high maintenance wife...she needed all of these things and more. I have been told I did not: treat her like a princess, buy her a bracelet a few months ago (because I thought we needed to save), pick her up from the station (10 minutes from us) whenever she needed it - because she was in heels and it was uncomfortable, "see" mess and dirt how she "sees" it (she finds it everywhere...I''m not looking for it!) etc etc.

Ironically, the one thing I never REALLY felt she wanted from me was the quality time you speak about there. I always wanted her to WANT to spend quality family time with me and my son...she never really seemed to want that.

HUGS
:(

I think all that ''stuff'' materialistic cr@p is pointless, wanting to be with someone is what I want, it sure helps if they want to be with you too ;)

I''d prefer a hug to a pandora bracelet, a snuggle to a Prada bag!
