Life’s Demerit System for Men……..

All married men will attest to some real wisdom in this email……In the world of romance, one single rule applies: MAKE THE WOMAN HAPPY!

Do something she dislikes, and points are subtracted.
You don’t get any points for doing something she expects.
Sorry, that’s the way the game is played!
