I have a husband and some of his jokes makes me feel very bad . But he think it's OK and he does everything for me and I am just jump on him with some contrived insults . Like I asked to borrow $50 from him and he said "yes" Later , before we made love , he said "so you want $50 for sex.. " I was insulted so later refused to take money from him. When I explained why he said that he doesn't remember what he said ... Now he hates me again because I did not take his money . I am do not know if I am right or is it how you guys normaly jokes ? Maybe it is OK in your country ? Please , help me.

The solution is simple, men are from Mars and women are from Venus. I've been married 17 years and I can't figure out what is going on in my wife's head.

I would read it as a harmless joke, but you are not me. It is important that you feel comforatable with your husband. If he makes such a joke again, stop right there and explain to him why it makes you feel disrespected. Be sure to give him a chance to defend himself as well.

Heck no, tell him that you didn't know you were getting PAID for it! Now the price tag is up to $500. But since you are such a good loving and devoted wife . . . you will settle for $100 - just becoause you love him sooooo much.
