My conversations with my wife are significantly different and go something like this:

 

Her: Aren't you going to play golf all weekend?

 

Me: Sure, I can manage to take care of that, why?

 

Her: Good, Our daughter and I are going to Barnes and Noble and a folk music festival at the Blue Ridge Music Center.

 

Such is life after 17 years of marriage.  Our youngest daughter is a total tomboy and follows everything I do, including golf.  She is 9 and in her second year of golf, wrestling, football, baseball, basketball and soccer.  Although, she has lost interest in all of those except golf in recent months.  My older daughter is a self proclaimed "nerd" and enjoys reading and guitars, similar hobbies as my wife.  Our oldest daughter is 11 and has a not-so-small library in her bedroom along with four guitars, a mandolin, and a fiddle.  And she plays them all very well.

 

In all seriousness OP.  My opinion of my relationship has always been to "give more than I get".  I have always been helpful, respectful and appreciative of my wife and as a result, she has never questioned my golfing habits.  I do, however, cook 90% of the meals in our household as well as 90% of the laundry.  Old military habits die hard but my wife doesn't mind in the least.  ;)

I'm sorry that many of you have to negotiate with your significant others to play golf.  I guess it's time to resurrect this classic from @jbil8802   A guy and his new wife were sitting at breakfast

I  met my wife on the golf course, married her on the golf course, and we play golf every weekend and some weekdays in the evening.  Simple.

I met my current girlfriend last October, towards the end of the golfing season. For the last 6 months, we've spent most weekend days together, mostly because I like spending time with her, buuuuuuutt

This is the humblebraggiest humblebrag I've ever seen. Well done

Bahahaha! Thank you very little.

Been playing golf on and off since I have been married. Got involved in a regular group that plays once a week about 16 years ago. My wife goes out with friends once a week and I go out to dinner with my daughter been doing that since my daughter was born which has been 16 years.

 

Now if it rains on my golf day my daughter and wife go out because they know I am going to be moping around the house all day.

A guy and his new wife were sitting at breakfast one morning.

Wife: "Honey, I think you should cut back on the amount of time you spend at the golf course."

Guy: "You sound just like my ex-wife."

Wife: "You never told me that you had been married before!"

Guy: "I haven't."

There's a country song where a gal tells her guy she'll be gone when he get's home from fishing.

 

He says I'm sure gonna miss her but looky here I got a bite!

Had an off year in high school and buddies joked about it being my gf affecting my mental side of the game. Next year I shaved 7 strokes off my average. Just saying...

I had the same issues back in the day. I always played way better when I wasn't dating someone. It didn't matter the sport. It worked the same way in college too.

I just had a conversation about this with the wife earlier today. Had to remind her about all the time she spends out of the house on weekends.

 

Amazing how eerily similar a lot of the posts are to my own experiences.

That's ok. They're cheaper by the hour anyway and they are interested at least for the hour

I met my current girlfriend last October, towards the end of the golfing season. For the last 6 months, we've spent most weekend days together, mostly because I like spending time with her, buuuuuuutttttt also because the weather is too shitty to golf regularly between November and March.

 

Last week, I sent her a text letting her know I was playing nine holes after work on Friday... here's how it went:

 

Me: Hey FYI playing nine after work today, should be done around 7:30.

 

Her: Aren't you playing golf tomorrow?

 

Me: Yes

 

Her: So golf Friday and Saturday?

 

Me: Yes

 

Her: Ok I guess

 

... so it begins.

Me: The course is opening April 15th!

Her: See you in November.

Mine says something similar every March 1st when conference tournamets start followed by the NCAA Tournament.  

 

She say's I'll talk to you in April, to which I reply.  Well, The Master's is the weekend after the Final Four.  whcih always gets a big sigh of resignation.  She hates how, basketball season blends right into golf season.   But she knows it's my two passions!!

I've heard a lot of guys say that they prefer a woman that likes to make many men happy as opposed to one man miserable. 

 

Fortunately, my friend, you and I have the good fortune to have ladies for whom it is important that we are happy.  We are lucky guys.   For the past couple of years, health concerns has reduced my desire to get off my butt and go to the course.   My wife has noticed this and many times will say-you know you want to play, now get off your lazy arse and go.

That's why you find a wife or significant other who plays and loves golf. My wife has been down at St. Simons Island, Ga. since Monday, playing in a huge Ga. state senior women's tournament and I'm home baby sitting the cats and dog :wacko:
