The brave author of Stuff Every Husband Should Know, Eric San Juan, also recommends laughter as one of The Ten Commandments of Marriage, along with man-to-man advice such as, "Everything is your fault. Learn to embrace this." and "When your wife says 'fine' it means she is not happy."
Then there's the example I came across in an interview with Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert describing her husband: "Jose says: 'A woman's place is in the kitchen ...with a glass of wine, watching him cook.'"
No mystery there why she broke her vow to never remarry.
So what's the secret in your house? What does your husband / boyfirend / significant other know that every other guy out there should?
