I'm liking the sound of 'Beloved Wives Day'. However, I don't think we need a day set aside to be thanked for all that we do. But I guess for oblivious husbands, this needs to be first scheduled into their PDAs and then it will become habit. :) No no, I'm not bitter. I just find this amusing. It's better than sitting and ranting about how men need to be forcefully reminded to give thanks to their wives while wives have it automatically ingrained in them to appreciate their men. I'm sure there are exceptions, and I'm glad for them. This is simply an observation to the article.
