You’ve had a major argument with your husband. You both think you’re right. You can cut the tension with a chainsaw. All attempts at communication are blocked by defensive egos – neither of you are prepared to back down.
In our 16 years together, my husband and I have had some ridiculously drawn out arguments. We’re both strong willed and like to get our point across – loudly. I don’t like fighting in front of the kids. I don’t like fighting at all (I’m a lover, not a fighter), but at times it’s dragged on and on. I’m utterly exhausted and just want to agree to disagree.
Do I wave the white flag and surrender? Ha! Never! (And neither does he.) But over time we’ve developed a natural solution to those battles that won’t simply die out on their own.[more]
Too knackered to get naked? Too drained to get down? Can’t remember when you last jumped his bones? Cobwebs forming in your nether regions?
Scheduled Bingo will help you out of this dry patch.
(Come on ladies, figure it out. Code name Bingo for any kids peering over your shoulder.)
Ah! Now I know what you’re talking about! But scheduled bingo? Are you kidding me? How unromantic is that!
We know, we know. Hear us out.
It doesn’t sound sexy, but neither does drifting apart. You’ve got to make time to play bingo.
It’s tough when kids and responsibilities take up big chunks of your time and energy, but this is the fuel in your relationship. Finding a time when you’re both energised, relaxed and up for it is about as likely as finding a naked Ryan Gosling under your sheets.
If you and your partner are out of synch, a bingo schedule will help get you back on track.
