    Ursula Andress' 1965 film, SHE (who must be obeyed) has a lot to answer for! The phrase has gravitated into men's conversation and although tongue-in-cheek, has even found its way onto here when folk describe their wife or partner.

    But WHY? Surely it's demeaning lads?

    Our women have spent years trying to get the "Obey" bit removed from wedding vows and yet here we are, hairy-arsed blokes, putting this obsequious statement back into our conversations!

    What are we; men or mice? Squeak up! :worried:

    Imagine the cry that would go up on here if you saw HWMBO! Never see it do you? No, because they refer to us as 'The OH', Hub' or by name. Canny eh?

    So rise up gents. Do we want to be portrayed as fawning men pushing a plaid shopping trolley, afraid to make a move unless we get the nod from herself? Of course not and the girls don't secretly want someone like that either.

    If you want an abbreviation, try SWMBTIC (She who must be taken into consideration) When using this, the conversation goes.... "If you think you're buying that, you can forget it" This becomes, "Let's talk about it, discuss the merits and de-merits....." Not "Yes dear"

    So, should SWMBO be banned? Answers on a postcard please. :imoutahere:

    No, at home looking after her as she has just been in hospital after having pneumonia. So getting the run around, fetch this, do that, what are we having for lunch/tea.
    Would be glad to be offshore for a rest.

    She's just out of hospital after having pneumonia, and you've posted this? :Eeek: She obviously isn't well enough to be reading your computer yet then...... - methinks you may be the one having a spell in hospital shortly......;):ROFLMAO:

    Oh, you mean as in your avatar?: Woof woof?

    I've heard about mail order brides and the old custom of wife selling prior to easier divorce but didn't realise women could buy a husband......... :)

    Well, I'm astonished! Got a few likes, but no one prepared to join my clarion call to outlaw SWMBO's.

    Gents, we have gone from MEN, to a load of moisturising pampered souls, who now spend more time getting ready than our ladies!

    Tin hat :imoutahere:
