[DML] Re: Wife orders 5252 to be sold



My wife is on me to get 6585 up and running... While I'm writing this
to Pat, this is something that everyone on here should read.

I'm no marriage councilor, but... If you need to sell a car, there's
nothing wrong with that. Things happen. I understand that totally as
do lots of people. If your wife however is telling you to sell the car
because of a power-play of some sort, you need to work other things out.

Too many times I've heard old-timers at the auto store and other
places I've driven my car tell me to hang on to what I've got, and
never let it go because of a woman. Even my uncle 2 months before he
died warned me of the same thing. His biggest regret was selling his
'68 Mustang 429 because my aunt told him to. He figured that if he
would have kept that car, she would either have shaped up, or shipped
out in their relationship. And ever since then, things were always a
power-play between the two to make up for that one car.

It's not a macho thing at all. If you love this car and sell it
because your wife tells you to, you're gonna regret it. It'll be
something that helps fuel all your arguments from now on to last
longer than they should, and you'll be asking "what-if?" for the rest
of your life. And while I'm sure you love your wife, you'll always
have a sliver of resentment towards her for forcing you to sell your car.

Now if you do have a financial need to sell the car, don't be
embarrassed. You just keep that private. However, don't go blaming
stuff like this on your wife. It might be an acceptable cliche by
many, but when she finds out you made her into a scapegoat, she'll be
the one with long-term resentment towards you.
