I've seen my wife fight, give birth, and deal with my stupidity for ten years. If that isn't enough i don't know what is, but i came home after a urgent call from her, somthing about the kid getting beat up (my 8 yr old daughter mind you) i rush home find her in a crowd of people the mother of the 11 yr old Boy that pushed her down and broke her tooth was arguing with my wife. The lady had about 3 or 4 other women their and had a broom in her hand. Just as i walked up the lady cocked the broom back and my wife stepped right up to her face and asked her to please give her the excuse she needed. Chick backed down real quick. You never wanna mess with mama bear lol

Mine was up and walking (up and down the stairs and driving) the day after we came home from the hospital with both our kids and they were both C-sections. I think I'd a lot more rest if I had just had my guts cut open. She had double bunion surgery one summer, even though the Doc said do one at a time. She also recently had a molar pulled and a bone graft done and I was impressed with how well she did. I don't handle dentist visits very well at all. She's a tough old bird.

Them ladies are tough but mines given me 4 healthy children with no pain killers, n spinal tap do-hickeys...or whatever there called...natural birth all 4 times.

I've endured MANY 25 mile road marches toting over 100 lbs of gear and weapons. Anyone who's done this knows the gut check required to keep going when the blisters keep speeding with every step and the ruck feels like it's hanging onto your traps with meat hooks but I still don't think it tops natural childbirth...

And she ELECTED to do it 4 times!

I'd say I'm a fairly strong guy but I've never stepped out on a 25 mile march by choice.

Hats off to her!

Tack

My wife is from Cambodia and we have been together over 23 years. When she was 22 and Pol Pot took over they took her families land and assets, took her then current husband in the middle of the night and he never came home. She lost about 6 other family members during that time. She was forced into a labor camp with her daughter, then maybe 3 or 4 years old. She survived that and took her Daughter along with the company of about 200 others and trekked over 100 mies on foot through the jungle and unimproved road to Thailand with her child on her back. On that walk she was able to see and walk through what we have come to know as the Killing Fields. According to her they had lost more than 100 people t mines and sickness. After 2 years in Thailand and 1 year in the Philippines. Then getting sponsored to the US and 7 years later she earned her Citizenship.

Is my wife tough? No recent displays, she acts I suppose as many women do in a day to day basis. However if the SHTF I have no doubt I would probably be the one trying to catch up to her as she has proven that she is a survivor.

My "other half" was not tough at all.

When the going got tough, he left.
