1 - He needs his personal space, especially when he is working on a private project. I never disturb him in office.

2 - He needs his sleep, so I shut off everything at night and he thankfully heads off to bed.

3 - He hates talking while driving, so we listen to music in the car - we have the same taste in music, so its good fun.

4 - He cant handle problems with the kids, so I handle that without him knowing there is a problem. Getting him involved aggravates stuff. He gets impatient with all but me.

5 - He hates being disturbed in the middle of a work project and forgets to eat, so I dress up nice and get him interested in eating - also he doesn't like a public eating place.

by reading this i would say that he has you well trained....good for him.....domesticated to the extreme.....good for you.....lol


Ahmed Alireza

:) Hmmmmmm, not exactly. I am like the house cat who will follow you everywhere but you do everything she wants because she is so obedient you can resist it. :)

I am domesticated - so is the queen bee. :P


Asma Ahsan

23rd April 2013


there is nothing wrong with domestication.....but your husband seems to me to be a spoiled brat taking full advantage of your mental frame and putting on a good act to keep a good thing going into perpetuity.....ok now you better go make him a nice glass of milk and sandwiches...lol


Ahmed Alireza

23rd April 2013


Lol. There is more to it than meets the eye. I make him a sandwich today and tomorrow he treats me to a 250 dhs lunch in a very classy place that I love to bits.

The spoilt brat spends a lot of money on me. Making a sandwich is no big deal. Look at the freedom he gives me. He never checks my Internet activities, he trusts me with his life, so that's why I make brothers here, or slap anyone who tries to get fresh with me, since they can't see how OLD I really am behind the scenes. :)

It's a win win from my side actually. I get a free lifestyle and all I need to do it make a bit of food because he doesn't like a cook making food for him. Says I am a master chef. That's true. I get impressed by my own cooking. I am actually that good. No pun intended. :)

I just took lunch to school for my son who is my spoilt brat since he won't eat outside food either, says he prefers mine.

The rewards I get for being a wife are so many I think I will marry this guy again after I die and go to heaven. :)

Adding something I remembered later.

My husband gives me money monthly, to pay for a cook and a maid. I just choose not to keep a maid and a cook. I have my own car and I can go anywhere I like, no questions asked. I just give him a report of my entire day because I love him and want him to feel that I wished he was with me. He never asks me where I went. That's called trust too. :)

It's called LOVE. I love him so much I like to be his slave, and inturn, he gives me the respect a wife deserves, is always polite, and I wear his ring on my finger, and his name attached To mine, much better than being the sleazy ' kept woman ' of some rich guy who had ten wives already, half of them hidden. :)

I proudly go everywhere as Mrs Ahsan. Ahsan syeds wife. :) I am his only known wife, and if he had any hidden ones, I wouldn't give a damn. :) being a hidden wife is not even legal in Islam. A wife has to be declared. I rest my case. :)


Asma Ahsan

23rd April 2013


i rest my case too...the jury is out on this one


Ahmed Alireza

24th April 2013


Good. I am very defensive about my husband. Sorry I got emotional over it. This is what happens when you have been with the same guy for 21 years, since I was 18. Thats more than half my life :)


Asma Ahsan

24th April 2013


1) He likes to be the man of the family, and he has proven himself to the hilt. So I let him be.

2) He likes to feel useful: makes the bed, vacuums, looks after the garden, carries the luggage.

3) He is great with his compliments, but also with his criticisms! He needs my compliments too.

4) He likes to be the last in bed at night, won't go to sleep unless I'm there.

5) He is loyal, a good Christian, good man whose always provided for the family he LOVES!
He says that I'm the best and the fastest cook that he knows, so I make whatever he desires.
However, he has a motto which I don't agree:
DO EVERYTHING I SAY, AND A BETTER MAN YOU WILL NEVER MEET!

Mr. Ahmed...What good things do you do? What role do you play?


Davide Castel

26th April 2013


1. I listen to him even when I am not interested in the topic (most of the time).
2. I understand him well enough to finish a good portion of his sentences.
3. I am honest and up front about what I think and feel.
4. I respect his opinions
5. I let him win 1 out of 5 arguments. ;)


Deborah Boydston

25th April 2013


Lucy, you found the right guy. A strong woman like you needs a firm hand. I like that he helps around the house. I won't let my husband clean though or make beds, because if theydo that, they criticize your efforts, mine can do the garden and carry luggage, and throw garbage, as per our marital contract. .:) my husband is same on do everything he says, but my father was same, so I am trained to be obedient. I cry sometimes when he is extra tough on me. It was same with my dad. I can't take being ignored b my men. I break down. Otherwise I am very strong and rarely cry. I think I want my men (dad, husband, son)to be proud of me and respect me. If they ignore me, it hurts me.

Deborah, you are a good woman, to be a good listener is a virtue. I cant listen to a person I have no common interest with, so I chose a guy who has plenty of common interests with me. Your guy is lucky to have you. Good strategy to let him win once in a while, that shows you love him. :)


Asma Ahsan

25th April 2013


Asma...I agree, that a strong woman needs someone to control her, just a little, but I don't like arguments, for they drain my energy levels and I get a headache, something quite rare for me.

Yes, he makes the bed, because being a Virgo and a perfectionist, he likes perfection! Say's he does a better job. So for the last 10 years, I let him make the bed, because it makes him feel good. My father did absolutely nothing around the house, as he expected it all to be a woman's job.
My husband even picks up crumbs from the carpet, all the time. Puts away all his clothes, and never leaves anything lying around. See? a perfectionist! Very tidy and thorough. He does all the heavy and dirty jobs around the place and I do the rest. My husband cannot make me cry, or break my spirit, for I am emotionally stronger, and he would be the first to cry, would you believe? We are quite opposite, that it makes life interesting.

Deborah, yes, a good listener is a great virtue.
Some people just talk about themselves all the time and never ask about you, yet expect you to listen to them. So rude. Yet my mother was a great listener saying 'Well they probably need to talk to someone with a sympathetic ear,to unload their troubles.


Davide Castel

Virgo Capricorn a perfect match, stop cribbing. :)

For Aries me its better to be with a leo or an Aries. I am too strong for Saggitarius who should be with a softer, more motherly types, not Volcano like me, only Aries or Leo can control me. My husband is Aries. :) I thought he was Leo and married him. Later found out he is aries and only two days difference in birthday,

I have a very bad temper. I explode if rubbed the wrong way, my downfall. Aries are very anger prone.


Asma Ahsan

26th April 2013


Asma, I learn more and more about you every day. You have a bad temper? Goodness, I need to see that. You're such a peaceful person, I think just us meeting would set you off hahaha.

Bad temper runs in my family and we get violent. I've told my brother so many times that he needs to back off or he's going to get socked in the face. I know it's horrible but I apologize every time. It's really bad. I may just take anger management classes.


Daniela Bustamante

25th April 2013


I have temper only for someone I don't like. And that is someone who had proved to be lethal to me or my family. Once they cross me and I know they are trouble, I chase them untill they wish they were dead.

I kick ass big time when needed.

I am soft only with friends and family. Cross me and wish you were dead.

I am a very bad enemy.


Asma Ahsan

26th April 2013


This is the side I've been wanting to see! Fierce Asma is coming out!


Daniela Bustamante

25th April 2013


Sigh, she has to come out when her family is in danger. I am a bad person to cross. Touch my family and you are so dead.

Bad things happen to people who try to harm me or my kids. God protects us and I just tell God to kick their behind by His own Divine sense. I don't take revenge. God takes it for me. :)

I don't do magic. I get on my prayer mat and pray and cry untill I am half dead, asking God to protect us from the enemies. Then peace comes, meaning the prayer has been accepted. Then God kicks them so hard it's amazing. I am very close to God this way that I run to Him at once and ask Him to look after us. I don't ask God to hurt my enemy, just to protect us, so I think their evil intentions of rme backfires on them by God's intervention. It's very confusing. They fall in their own trap. I don't have to do a thing to expose them.

Works every time.

I have been following this conversation, and the strength behind you two women is amazing, but also hilarious. I see the funny side of it.

To protect yourself or the ones you love, is like injecting yourself with a surge of energy, to give you the courage to fight back, which means you have 'backbone' - an expression we use. A weakling is too frightened. But when it is something you believe in, then go for it. You need to live with yourself afterwards, regarding those consequences, though.

A mother's love for her children, would give her the strength to lift up a car if it were to save them. Never wish bad on anyone. The universe does that to them. Just feel sorry for them, for they know no better.


Davide Castel

26th April 2013


I think anyone gets defensive when it comes their family... I do too. I can just imagine when I have kids.


Daniela Bustamante

26th April 2013


Daniela...You will be Overprotective, just like my own daughter with her children. Because they are yours and you bore them!


Davide Castel

26th April 2013


I know.. it scares me because sometimes I'm too overprotective. You should see how I am with the kids at my job.

1. I know what he wants or needs before he asks for it.
2. I often anticipate what he is about to say and will answer him before he asks the question.
3. We often have the same song rattling around in our heads.
4. I know that if I give him $50.00 to buy something that costs $20.00, I will not get change. (Money burns a hole in his pocket. He just has to spend it)
5. When he can't find something, I will know exactly where he left it.
