So I asked my little buddy who is 30 years old what he told his wife he wanted for his birthday? His response kind of surprised me. He said can you give me a day with no complaining, and without yelling at me and belittling me and calling me names? I said you have got to be kidding?

He told me the woman complains all the time and he thought it would be great if he could get a day with no complaining. I told him I had never heard of such a thing and if I lived with someone who I had to ask that for a birthday present she would be gone.

I have known guys where the women complained a lot but I have never heard of anyone asking for a day of no nagging for their birthday. I really feel bad for this kid. I told him, dude, if things are that bad you are asking for a day of peace and quiet for your birthday you really need to reevaluate your relationship.

Anybody else here ever ask for something like this for their birthday? I told him I'd be asking for a divorce.

That’s really awful. I would divorce her.

LOL please.

You know he did NOT say that to her. If she really were such a shrew, imagine what she'd do to him if he did.

Makes a good story for work, though.

Don't judge too harshly... they could just be in a rough patch, or your "little buddy" could be particularly sensitive for some reason.

Moms love their kids, but a day without bickering is probably the #1 request for Mother's Day. It's just how things are sometimes.

He should just go fishing. That’s what men used to do.

She's probably a mental case and he has low self esteem.

Some guys are just happy to get what they can get and will put up with literally anything to get it.

When I first got married, I promised myself that I would never, EVER nag my husband about anything, and to the best of my knowledge, I never did, in all of 31 years of marriage. On the other hand, in my husband's (ex-husband's) eyes, nothing I did was ever good enough for him, and he made sure I knew it. Birthday wishes? My only wish had been that it was acknowledged that I even had a birthday to celebrate. To this day, I hate my birthday, because it was always a day when it became patently obvious that I was worthless and not worth celebrating.
