So, how long does it take in a relationship before you know the other person better than they know themselves? I don't know when it happened, we've been together 14 years and I swear it really cuts down on arguments, because rather than argue about things he wants to do, I know he usually won't, so I just smile and nod. For instance, it could be my morning to sleep in and him to get up with the kids (I usually get one of these a month) and the night before he'll come up with this great idea to go to church, or to the park, or to his parents or whatever, early, and not allowing me to sleep in. I'll say "sure" and KNOW that there is no way that he is going any further than the couch in the morning. It works well.
So yesterday, he decided that he was going to go back to work today. Since he can't drive, I asked what time he wanted to leave, and asked that he not sleep until it was time for HIM to get ready. I wanted him to get up and help get the kids ready since we would all have to take him to work. Well, he took a nap yesterday afternoon from 1-6 and during that time I realized he WOULD NOT be going to work today. I knew he woud be up all night and be tired. I asked him again before bed what time he wanted to leave and he said 8:20. I smiled on the inside, because I KNEW he wouldn't go. The kids got up at 7:00 and he stayed in bed. He came down at 8:00 and said he was tired and NOT going to work. How is it that I knew this yesterday, and he didn't know until he woke up this morning? I really want to know how this works? Anyone else have the same situation?
