My Husband

Fighting with Even Steven

By  | 

Even Steven and I stopped exchanging gifts on Valentine’s Day a long time ago.

I know – some of you are shocked that we’ve let something like this happen. You can’t believe that we’d let the most romantic holiday pass us by without acknowledging our love for each other.

So for those of you that are feeling sorry for us – let me just tell you that I totally let Even Steven know how much I love him on Valentine’s Day. If you know what I mean….

This year Even Steven and I had a conversation about Valentine’s Day that quickly led to us (me) considering divorce.

It went something like this…

Me: Let’s pretend we’re the ages we are right now. But we’re just dating. What would you get me for Valentine’s Day?

Even Steven: We’re just dating? How long have we been dating for?

Me: Nearly a year – but not quite.

Even Steven: I’d do something really different. I’d take you on a trip.

Me: Ooohhh – that would be awesome. A trip? That sounds absolutely perfect.

Even Steven: Yup. I’m pretty amazing like that. And I know how much you love a swim-up bar, so I found a place that has two of them.

Me: Oh my gosh – I would totally be down for that. And you’d propose while we’re on the trip, right?

Even Steven: Nope. That would be too expected. I’d wait until a week after we got back.

Me: Ummm… that would be just mean. You know I’d be spending the entire trip thinking you were going to propose. And then you just wouldn’t?

Even Steven: No – I wouldn’t propose. But on our last night there when you realized that I wasn’t going to propose and you threw a giant tantrum about me not proposing and started crying and acting like a crazy person, I’d whip out the ring and tell you that you totally ruined everything.

Me: And then you’d propose?

Even Steven: Heck no. I’d break up with you on the spot and spend the rest of my life being grateful that I didn’t marry the crazy woman.

    Seriously, Even Steven and Kevin could be twins, because seriously who who probably say that he would do something similar to me nowadays!!

    This is a very funny post! My husband and I have been together almost 9 years. I can’t believe it:) it’s great to hear what other couples talk about at this point in their relationship!

    Um…. I think my husband did that to me. Except without the valentines day, but the trip and not proposing… I didn’t have a tantrum but I was totally miffed and we did have a fight the last day. We got engaged a couple of weeks later….

    That is hilarious…I love the photo too! I think all (husbands) men are related. My husband did that to me…he told everyone that he was going to propose on NYE. Nothing happened. He proposed the day after when we were in the car. Romantic. I asked what happened…he said that the moment got lost when it was expected. HUH? He was the one that told everybody! And they told me. But, he didn’t know that. So yeah…I expected it! We’ve been married 16 years and still talk about that lame proposal, lol!

    OMG! Too funny! And I can completely relate. We don’t always buy presents for each other anymore either. But my hubby actually pulled a lamo kind of proposal back in the day too. Perfect night out, the music playing in the background was our song, a walk on the lakefront, (and I knew he had the ring already), and nothing. He waited until I had a meltdown and called him to come over and take care of me to propose.

    Ha! That Steven, he’s funny. He’s also a liar. He would have found your crazy irresistible, just like the he loved your crazy back when you were tagging his sheets.

    Wow laughed so hard my husband had to come in from the next room to see what was so funny. We never had any money when we were dating to go anywhere.

    hahaha! Love it!
    When my husband and I were dating and considering getting married (well, we bought a house and a dog together already, so it was pretty assumed), I said I’d like to be engaged BEFORE the end of summer. For me end of summer is Labor Day weekend. So imagine my mood when husband told me he wasn’t coming to the beach with me that weekend. Um, hard to propose when you are not in the same location! He then proposed on September 22nd- the ACTUAL LAST DAY OF SUMMER. I found our he was just waiting for the ring to get sized and when it still wasn’t ready he took one in a different size as a lender until the right one came in he was so worried I’d be really mad.

    Repeated use of such products may help keep your
    dried-out skin under control, however, you can depend on just any moisturizing product.
    PDT is more epensive than your usual acne treatments which is
    rarely protected by insurance. I do know one person that got
    pregnant right after treatment stopped and she had a
    successful pregnancy as well as the baby was lacking any birth defects.
