Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Back in the day, all the good shrinkers encouraged everyone to speak their mind. Get it off your chest. Tell it like it is. Lay it on the line. Don't keep your feelings bottled up. Not stellar advice if you intend to make a go of your marriage vows.
That's one big shortcoming of AA. You gotta make amends with the wife for your bad behavior. Sorry, honey, I boinked your sister-in-law and that skank at Nick's Hideaway, but I couldn't help it, I was drunk. Please forgive me. Then they wonder why they're smoking Marlboro's and drinking black coffee after the meeting. Alone.
Discretion is the better part of valor. There's no percentage in mentioning that your better half really ought to ditch the Pepperidge Farm Milk Chocolate & Macadamia cookies.
