    I am late to this thread.

    Past girlfriends, years ago, were all introduced to AR, through my own enthusiasm. That enthusiasm was considered to be competition for their attention, as if I had another girlfriend. That just didn't work. Then, I met the love of my life. At least she tolerated it all. The difference was, I made sure she felt that she was number ONE in my life (she is, really). I never pressured her to be a ham and it was OK that she didn't want to be a ham. Four and a half years after our marriage, she surprised me, out of the blue, with her getting her Novice. Advanced, DXCC, WAS, etc., not long afterwards. Make sure the wife, partner, pets knows they are first. The rest comes easy when they see your enjoyment, on their terms. :) My wife never noticed antennas before marriage, so no opinion. She likes them now and calls them out on trips.

    You are welcome )

    My wife thinks I'd rather spend time with the radio than with other women or drinking somewhere ...
    She is very wise ...

    Realy not hard to understand: Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus.

    Wives think it is a silly waste of time and money. They wish you would pay as much attention to them as you do to the radio. They think the antennas is ugly and devalue the property.

    The two golden rules to a successful marriage:

    1. Wifey is always right.
    2. If Wifey makes a mistake, refer to rule 1.

    You do not have to understand, just accept it. Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus. :)

    My wife is way more curvy than my Venus, but the Venus is also attractive.

    This is the key to life. My wife, kids, grandkids all take precedence over ham radio.

    Living in a place called Bendover is mild compared to living at this UK address:

    Sadly, the residents association has now changed the name of the road (but it was fun while it lasted)
