Using the above principle, my boss said something once that struck me as amusing and somewhat profound. Getting flack from his staff about going to a Barry Manilow concert, he simply said:

I love my wife.
My wife loves Barry Manilow.
I love Barry Manilow.

A smart man...he''s been happily married for 30 years.

So how many of you do things simply because your mate loves it? What kinds of things are they, and have you come to have an appreciation of it yourself?

Hey TG, that is called syllogism and here are syllogistic common mistakes .

ETA: here is how particular case is qulifies imho:

b] or phrase but with a different meaning each time, creating a fourth term even though only three distinct words are used:

Major premise: Nothing is better than complete happiness.
Minor premise: A ham sandwich is better than nothing.
Conclusion: A ham sandwich is better than complete happiness> Wikipedia.org

Love this topic... I just laughed out loud thinking of how many things could fit into that formula for us!

First one that came to mind, from his perspective:
She loves her cat.
I love her.
Thus, I love her cat. And he really does! More so than he expected, I think.


Second thought: If this was automatically applied to all in-law relationships, the world would be a much happier place.....

(My child loves that person... I love my child... thus, I love that person too..... and vice versa!)

Ha, thanks PS, that is a serious detailed article!

My husband loves MotoGP. I am totally unsold on this. So using a syllogism, could I say..

MotoGP is boring.
I am fun.
I should never watch MotoGP

???

I wish.

Third line should read:

MotoGP is boring.
I am fun.
He should alway prefer me over MotoGP

Kaleigh, now that my husband lives here in socal, he LOVES golf. Just adores the fact that he can do it year round. I am trying to learn it because I think it would be a nice thing to do together as we get older, but man...this syllogism is not happening in my case!!!

For those that remember algebra:

Women = money * time [Ask any man, you diamond-loving fiends!]
Time is money, so women = money^2
Money is the root of all evil, so money = sqrt(evil)
So money^2 = evil
Therefore women = evil

Mara is that what Greg does? You mention here and there that he has rehearsal or practice, but somehow I got it in my head that he was part of a rock band or something!

Mr. Miranda says: I love my wife...My wife loves to watch Gem TV...I love to watch Gem TV. He is always amazed at how long I can sit there. Well, I don''t know if he is amazed or frightened.

lol TG...well like many of us, he is a corporate slave during the week, but he is also part of like 2-3 local bay area symphonies and small playing groups, he plays the tuba, saxaphone and trombone so he plays different instruments in different concerts. he has rehearsals at least once a week, sometimes twice, and sometimes concerts on the weekends as well! he loves doing it though, it's totally his THING. i go to most of his stuff as well..and i do love classical music, but i tend to like listening to it in the car or laying down on the couch relaxing, when i go and listen to these concerts it's like visual and audio overload, my brain can't concentrate on any one thing...but it's still fun to go and appreciate him.
