OR it means that they don't want to go fishing, but play it off so as to make it sound like their wife won't let them. Either way, same thing.

What's it mean when she says, "You can go if you really want to."?

Uncle told me a long time ago that when you ask to go hunting or fishing and she says "no", and you comply... you may as well sell every fishing rod, shotgun, whatever.
Wise words.

It means if you go, she will put you on that special medicine for a couple weeks.

My wife and I are at 33+ years. I’d do it all over again. Yesterday we spent the entire day sunup till bed time together and had a BLAST. It was the first day we had done that in weeks, typically we have activities or work that keep is busy enough that we are not together every minute of the day.

As my wife and I floated in the pool yesterday we marveled at the MISERY and lack of life married people have who are so much up each other’s ass that they have to control every minute of each other’s existence. I can’t even imagine.

I don’t ever ask “permission” to go or do anything and neither does my wife. In my opinion if permission is required to go fishing or my wife needs it to meet a friend for lunch the “relationship” probably should have ended in the friggin 10th grade.....

This.
Most of the time I'm the one who starts whining to go home first. "Honey, It's almost sunset and we're still 30 miles off shore!"......

Never even thought of "asking" my wife if I could go fishing. She often fusses at me for staying home to do stuff. Unless you are just a tool, ignoring her, your kids and things that need doing around the house, why would any wife care? My wife has her hobby, I have mine and we do stuff together. She actually loves to be on the boat so...……………….

I think what piner is referring to are the calls he gets for charters. If the guy says they have to ask their wife you aren't going to hear from them again.

I actually laughed out loud when I read his original post as it is sooooo accurate!

Pretty much the way it is in my house. I usually consult whether we have any important commitments and such as she takes care of our social calendar. Ask permission? No, never since meeting in ‘75 and married 36 years.

It’s a relief not to have to worry about it. Marriage has been a damn good deal for me. It sure makes some guys miserable...nuts!
