The Needs of Women and Men

Husband and wife are getting all snuggly in bed. The passion is heating up. But then the wife stops and says "I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me."

The husband says "WHAT??"

The wife explains that he must not be in tune with her emotional needs as a woman.  The husband realizes that nothing is going to happen tonight and he might as well deal with it.

So the next day the husband takes her shopping at a big department store. He walks around and has her try on three very expensive outfits. And then tells his wife, "We'll take all three of them."

Then goes over and gets matching shoes worth $200 each.

And then goes to the jewelry department and gets a set of diamond earrings.

By this time the wife is really excited. She thinks her husband has flipped out, but she doesn't care. She goes for the tennis bracelet. The husband says "You don't even play tennis, but ,OK, if you like it then let's get it".

The wife is jumping up and down, so excited she cannot even believe what is going on. She says "I'm ready to go, let's go to the cash register."

The husband says,"No, honey, we're not going to buy all this stuff." The wife's face goes blank. "No, honey - I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while" Her face gets really red and she is about to explode. The husband finishes, "You must not be in tune with my financial needs as a man."
