One day a husband and a wife were arguing over the making of holiday plans. The hubby was complaining about spending too much time with the in-laws (as husbands often do), and the wife was trying to convince the husband that he wanted to do what she wanted to do (as wives often do). Both got madder and madder. In the end (after the requisite cooling off period) the husband came to the wife and told her he was feeling argumentative because he was jealous. Jealousy aside, he truly wanted to do whatever the wife wanted to do. He understood that the wife had a special warm, happy place that she could retreat to for the holidays, and he wanted to share that with her. He was sad that he didn’t have the same thing. And the wife was sad too.
