OK...this could turn out to be a hot bed of controversy, but let's hear what you think constitutes a good relationship (friends, lovers, parents, children, pets, etc.), and along with that...things that blow the relationship right out of the water. What makes you stay and what makes you leave? Is the relationship worth saving if it gets in trouble and how do you manage that? Remember....what happens at BH...stays at BH. Gonna start us off with an obnoxious joke, so chime right in and give us your solicited opinion. ======================================= THE HUSBAND STORE A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates: You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building! So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs. ` ` ` The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids. ` ` ` The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking. "Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. ` ` ` She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads: Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework. "Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" ` ` ` Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads: Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help With Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak. ` ` ` She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the Sign reads: Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. =========== To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opens a New Wives store just across the street. ` ` ` The first floor has wives that love sex. ` ` ` The second floor has wives that love sex and have money. ` ` ` The third through sixth floors have never been visited.
