wife wants attention. car gets devotion and is competitor. wife could less about F car. she feels like she is playing second fiddle.
at this time words do not work. drop your clay bar. without saying anything, go take out garbage. one tactic that works for me is to start scrubbing kitchen floor and if that does not work, scrub the toilet and shower. get real dirty, hot and sweaty .lastly go clean your closet.
oh and yes look humble and ask for glass of ice water as you fix lights, drapes and put things in order.
no dinner, order out Italian or Mexican.
oh and be sure to shower and change underwear and shave.
as last resort put car cover on F car ,hook up charger and then ask wife if she would like to go home depot to upgrade kitchen cabinets as you take her over to select new paint colors.
this will work ,cause what wife resist free be at home depot.
oh and when getting in car , not Ferrari, tell her she looks great. of course, she will snarl and may say to fXXk off., but be calm she is just enjoying every minute of it.
expect the cold shoulder from her till she starts out to pick paint colors. as soon as she gets involved with joint project that she will control, your her slave, healing will begin.
Remember you pissed her off and you are going to eat sXXt for a while.
Oh and do not lose your temper, or you will find Ferrari parked in middle street with FOR SALE sign
I am married 41 years, I can tell you, that you are stuck in a manmade hell from which there is no escape , destined to be food for the Harpies, straight from Hades in greek mythology, soulless and heartless creatures.
