Marriage is a partnership...NOT a disposable lighter!!
It's not chest beating all. It's a simple coaching on how to improve one's life to ensure future satisfaction.
My first wife "wouldn't let" me get a motorcycle or more guns. My current wife has been stellar for 13 years and doesn't like but accepts that I like guns and sport bikes. And I've collected a lot of both over the years.
She also checks my work calendar and sends me pictures like this while I'm in meetings but will soon be free for an hour or so for "lunch" while the kids are at school
A partnership is her accepting what I enjoy and me accepting what she enjoys. Replacement is always an option and both sides should accept and sometimes embrace it.
Trust me, it all gets better.
