    I’d never tell my wife that. She drags me to enough with being encouraged to do it more.

    I let my husband pick the movies. Not because I’m following the doctrine of Gabrielle Reece and believe in being submissive….

    I cannot watch or see any ads for movies without remembering them and ruining the movies for myself. They cannot keep to the first half of the movie to sell it. They need to show the ending. Well, thanks. Now I will be looking for that scene subconsciously and can predict nearly every scene. OY!

    Ya, even my husband now watches or reads just a little teaser before not looking over any more. We both enjoy movies a thousand times more now.

    IMHO most women would appreciate a surprise date once in a while. Even if her guy picks something not at the top of her list.

    You made it worse with the last panel, Arlo.

    My hubby and I can generally agree — that there’s nothing at the movie theatre we want to go see.

    Maybe he should drag her to all the places he wants to go. Doubt any wife would put up with that.

    I’ve been waiting for this. Movies are really best watched at home, but theater is really the best date. Even lousy community stuff is pretty entertaining.

    As THESEUS said in Midsummer Night’s Dream:

    “The kinder we, to give them thanks for nothing.
    Our sport shall be to take what they mistake:
    And what poor duty cannot do, noble respect
    Takes it in might, not merit.”

    On the occasions that my wife and I go to movies in the theater, it is generally a mutual choice. We actually do not consider very many movies worth the cost of seeing at cinema prices, and it is usually one where the really big screen is a factor.

    If you look at it right, Langchris70, it’s a complement: she knows his taste so well that he ends up enjoying things he’d never have gone to on his own.

    My husband only likes sci-fi, so he and a friend go to the movies together quite often. I go back to bed and enjoy a nap and a good book.
