Wife Picks Dogs?
This isn't really my entire story, more of a question I guess. Has anyones wives or husbands for that matter consistantly pick the company of the household pet(s) over the company of their spouse (you)? If so, is this as wrong as I feel it is. My wife will not typically have sex with me, and if she does she doesn't even look me in the eyes...yet I can consistantly be seen kissing dogs on the mouth, holding the dogs, petting the dogs. Ok, so I thought that maybe I just had issues with the attention that the dogs recieved from my wife, she always makes excuses for their bad behavior has well. One day however while my wife had no cloths on just after a shower (a rare sight for me, she is good at hiding her body from me in sweats and t-shirts every night of the week), she was laying on our bed holding one of the dogs, again I say with no cloths on (not the dog, MY WIFE), I literally, "Oh God, gross...!) and she literally just looked over at me, smiled, and said, "What"...what the &^@# am I living in? I obviously live in a SM, when we were dating I could see an obvious drop in physical affection (before our sexual relationship) after getting the dogs. Is it really possible for someone to love animals more than their spouse? I have asked her if she would pick me over them, she simple says, "Don't make me pick! It would hurt me so much if you got rid of them..." As in you would pick them if you can't answer the question...if we argue about the dogs living in the house she tells me, "It would be in my best interest to drop the arguement", I wonder, .....or what, that sounds like a threat to me, a bold threat, over the household pets. Perhaps I am off my rocker and am just a dog hater, or is it justified, these issues are just a small portion of the issues at hand. Advice or comments?
