老公 老婆 .. s/he thinks

所謂老公: 老公,就是婚前總是早早赴約,婚後總是遲遲回家的那個人。 老公,就是在婚前在你面前像孫子總是百依百順,婚後在你面前像老子總是發號施的那個人。 老公,就是婚前只看你的臉蛋是否漂亮,婚後只看你的雙手是否會幹家務活的那個人。 老公,就是婚前對你常常發誓,婚後對你常常發火的那個人。 老公,就是婚前常替你作事,婚後常叫你做事的那個人。 老公,就是婚前向你送玫瑰,婚後向你交工資的那個人。 老公,就是婚前對你說十句頂一句,婚後對你說一句頂十句的那個人。 老公,就是婚前對你說 你是我的一切 婚後對你說:我是你的一切的那個人。 老公,就是婚前在你面前乾淨整潔,婚後在你面前不修邊幅的那個人。 老公,就是婚前常常盤問你,婚後又怕被你盤問的那個人。 老公,就是婚前對你嘮叨百聽不厭,婚後對你的嘮叨火冒三丈的那個人。 老公,就是婚前在你面前海侃胡吹,婚後在你面前沈默不語的那個人。 老公,就是婚前總說你美麗,婚後總說別人老婆漂亮的那個人。 老公,就是婚前與你上街時口袋裏裝滿鈔票,婚後與你上街時口袋裏沒有鈔票的那個人…..   所謂老婆: 老婆,就是婚前約會每次都遲到,婚後整天不上班好吃懶做的那個人。 老婆,就是在婚前在你面前溫柔的跟小綿羊似的,婚後在你面前跟母老虎似的那個人。 老婆,就是在婚前畫的跟天仙似的,婚後就跟你又多了一個老媽一樣的那個人。 老婆,就是婚前最喜歡要你發誓,婚後成天看你不順眼的那個人。 老婆,就是那個婚前什麼都不幹,婚後更是天天壓迫你的那個人。 老婆,就是婚前最喜歡玫瑰,婚後最喜歡珠寶首飾的那個人。 老婆,就是那個婚前什麼都由她決定,婚後你要是發表意見就跟你瞪眼的那個人。 老婆,就是婚前對你說:我是因你而美麗,婚後對你說:我的美麗是天生的那個人。 老婆,就是婚前逛商場從不買東西,婚後不把你肚兜裏的錢花光決不出商場門的那個人。 老婆,就是婚前從來不想知道你的過去,婚後連你幼稚園的事都問十遍不嫌累的那個人。 老婆,就是那個婚前在你面前淑女狀,婚後整天跟你說張家長李家短跟大媽似的那個人。 老婆,就是婚前總說你是最帥的,婚後沒事就拿你和那個超級明星比的那個人。 老婆,就是婚前成天不想見你、一見你就煩,婚後就是你上個廁所都要向她彙報的那個人。 老婆,就是那個婚前說一起創業共同奮鬥,婚後成天嫌你錢賺的少的那個人。 哈哈哈……這那是老公和老婆,跟死敵一樣!就這樣結婚幹嗎?其實真正的老公和老婆應該是:無論婚前還是婚後都把對方的缺點當作優點來看的那個人;無論婚前還是婚後,都把自己的缺點為了對方改正的那個人;無論婚前還是婚後,都用包容和寬容去體會對方的那個人;無論婚前還是婚後,都真誠的去面對彼此的那個人;無論婚前還是婚後,都深愛對方的那個人;無論婚前還是婚後都是那個人的人!
