    If you got a good fish on the line, make sure you land it.... It's awful hard to hook 'em again if you let it slip away.

    Wait, she said she needed a spare? Buy it now in the spec you want!

    I almost let this one get away but I (can't think of a fishing analogy, sorted my life out) and she bit again.
    She doesn't play though.

    i do want a new stringing machine, but if i marry her i won't be able to afford one in a while
    As I said before, sucker punched. You are dead meat.

    Lol... It's called a compromise... but in any case, there is much truth in the saying: happy wife, happy life.

    i guess i do see it as a compromise, and since i love her more than all my rackets combined, it's not so much being bullied but me being big about the whole thing

    my buddy actually used "happy wife, happy life" as part of his best man speech in two of our buddies' weddings.. at the time i laughed since i was ignorant and dumb, now i understand the truth behind it :P

    athlete or not, i'm going to make a wife of such a woman, who is passionate in..2 things
    a) endless cash supply
    b) treating me like a king and pampering me with gifts etc
    special exception: c) if she happens to be the daughters, granddaughters or suitably aged younger sisters of the ceos of yonex, li-ning, victor etc ahem

    I want some of what he's smoking!!

    Girls like that probably often hang-out at badminton clubs looking for sweaty guys to marry. Good luck with your plan.

    Hmm, I can only conclude your hormonal state is affecting a Dr Spock state of logical deduction.

    You buddy might not have read this (didn't I put up a link like this before?). Give it to him now and ask him if he would say the same thing...

    nice link!
    i guess the secret lies in making the other person think they have the upper hand even when they don't. takes skill, and years of patience to win that game, that badminton pales in comparision
    BUT we do have to make certain sacrifices now and then .... like gundamzaku's new racket for instance haha.

    lol, my buddy was a badminton enthusiast but stopped after he relocated to new jersey, met his wife, married her, and started playing ping pong instead because she's an enthusiast. he's someone who is really chill, so he usually just goes along with whatever she says. so it's still happy wife happy life for him!!!

    I know that this is a light-hearted thread. But a word to the wise:

    To continually repress one's feelings and desires, in subjugation to a spouse, is not a recipe for long-term happiness in marriage ....

    ... No matter how 'hot' she is.

    Hmmm, define 'hot' ...

    One can always plan ahead by saving a bit of each pay cheque for counselling fees for a good psychologist that will inevitably be needed.

    she's not hot at all....but i guess he's so easy going that it doesn't even seem he's repressing anything. but i do think his own relationship is a lot more healthy than i had described
