I made sure my girlfriends-wife were all about understanding my hunting-fishing-adventuring problem, so that would never happen. Maybe if she was very sick or something. Seems like the Sugarland chick is sort of needy and whiny.

Before we got married, my fiance said to me 'I know how much you enjoy hunting and fishing, and how much it means to you. I hope you never think you have to stay home because of me'

Best thing is, she meant it, and supported me even when I took our sons and their friends out of school for spring turkey and fall whitetail deer camping/hunting trips.

It's been a great 43 years.

From: kyrob

I've been married for 26 years. In that time neither of us has tried to keep the other from doing what they wanted. Now considering that, 2weeks ago on 4/1/18, I woke up feeling feverish and such. She was going to her moms in another county and came in to check on me before leaving. Asked how I was and told her I felt like I might pass out which I have never done. She said she was staying home then and for once I didn't tell her to go on. 30 minutes later I passed out and she called 911. Paramedics were doing ekg and I began throwing up and diareah blood. Lost 3 units in my bathroom floor. BP was 48/30. Bout done for. Got ambulance ride to hospital and stayed 9 days and got 5 units put back in. Home now and going to take several weeks to recuperate. I had been taking an arthritis medicine and it just ate my stomach up evidently. 3 clips and 3 cauterizations and all bleeding stopped. Got an ivc filter in as well. Close call. So if my wife ever says stay, I am staying. All this happened in a matter of hours. I have only been in a hospital once for a colonoscopy when I turned 50. Always great health except for achy joints. Scary situation now that it's over. Good health and good hunting to you all this coming season.

I agree the chick sounds whiny, that was painful and I did not even finish the video. At least she was pleading, and not going all mental like my ex every time I wanted to do anything fun or for myself. My ex did not last long, and I divorced her psycho mental crazy possessive jealous cheating ass in 1990. I pity the fools that had her after me.

I agree we should at least see yoga pants.

I have been married for 35 years, my wife knows the passion i have for hunting! she says it good for her as well when i am gone for 17 days hunting elk! the only problem is ... she always buys something when i am gone, like a new living room set, new dinning table.... its a good trade off!

18-Apr-18
I was thinking she could really sing and was memorized by her ability. Until she started acting and crying. Any human that can "act" pure heartache while has issues that I can't admire. They got crazy. She was a good looking, easy to listen to women. However, after watching that, she is a just a fruit loop.

My first wife said she understood I was a hunter before we got married too. That lasted about 2 years, we were divorced a year later. That worked out for everyone in the end, because I now have the best hunting partner and hunting kids I could ever hope for! Stay? Naw, lawyers are cheap when the alternative isn't worth considering! Ha!

My wife and my mother hunted together until my mother passed away at 92. I would come home and have to go out on our farm and drag. After my mother passed away, my wife began to hunt with me if I sat. If I stillhunt or track, she hunts out of a blind on our land with my granddaughter. She has really gotten into bowhunting at 72 years of age. As far as trapping, she and my 11 year old granddaughter are my trapping partners. They are better trappers than me. Their sets are perfect, plus they skin better than me.

If she goes down that road, I simply sing a favorite of mine by Brooks and Dunn... "You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone"...

Not a problem for me. Two years ago I got married to a Chinese national who has retained her condo in Sichuan Province. She wants to live there 3 months/year after she retires from teaching this July. Sept/Oct/Nov, depending on what hunting tags I draw each year. I will go there to visit during that time between hunts. Just $500 round trip that time of year. We agreed to this plan two years before we wed. We are both happy about it.

When I met my wife , I was 30. We both knew it was right for us to be together. Never did purpose to her. I had 35 beagles at the time. My passion then was field trial beagles. We were out running my favorite beagle. I just reached into my pocket and pulled out the box with the ring. Been married 30 years this winter. She knew what she was getting into .

Got hooked on bow hunting , a couple years later. When friends and I would plan a weekend hunt, I would always hear "" i check with my wife" " sometimes we would go and sometimes not.

.Fast forward to 2005 , after she and I did several fly in fishing trips i met a bear guide in the area. My friends always couldn't go , for SOME REASON . My wife said they won't go but I will. We went and she sat with me filming me taking a bear with bow. On the way home , she said i would like to bear hunt next year. I had already bought her a bow, that she never shot much. So she practiced and was ready . The next year I filmed her taking a 340 lb bear. She has since taken several more bears . She holds out for big ones or does not shoot. She has taken several deer also since then . Next week we go turkey hunting in Michigan at the 45 acres THAT SHE INSISTED WE BUY i might add. End of May we go on a 2 week bear hunt . She was a city girl and was never exposed to the great outdoors . Now I have a real hunting buddy. Life is good !!

I respect my wife and if she needs me or wants me home, I'll stay, but she doesn't lay any guilt trips on me and has no objection to me going out hunting whenever I need to fill tags. At least she doesn't say she has a problem, but I could tell if she did, and I'd gauge it by her reaction when I say I'm going. After a while you know what they really need/want by the look on her face and the tone of her voice. If you are smart and want no conflict, you will go along with her wishes. If you don't care, good luck on a happy marriage.

My lady has accompanied me a 2 hunts. I killed on both. I don't like that she watches me plan, celebrate when I draw a tag, prepare, train, and then starts to "boo-day" the week before I'm scheduled to leave. I have hunted while in A-Fib in 2010 and once again in 2015. There is little I won't endure or put up with when it comes to hunting elk or mule deer. That said, I do love the woman and if it was serious, I would consider staying.

As for Ogoki: Your wife is a "Keeper" for sure. I must ask: Does she have a cute younger sister (with a deer lease) that likes her man to be older, salty, and bit overweight? LOL! LaGriz

If you can’t put yourself 2nd, you shouldn’t get married. That’s something a person needs to understand going in. The beauty of a good marriage though, is the opposite party is thinking the same thing. If you count on the opposite party thinking that way, then you’re fooling yourself - you haven’t put yourself 2nd.

If that doesn’t sound like a good idea, marriage isn’t for everyone, but I can’t imagine life without my wife, or my daughter for that matter.
