What do you think of this video?
I saw this video floating around on Facebook with the caption:
After being married for 30 years now, take my word for it … this is an excellent video. If you’ve been married for any length of time, you’ll get it!
We’ve all heard this kind of thing, from movies to off-handed comments from family members. How do you respond?
Not only do I think this video relies on bad gender stereotypes, but I also don’t think it’s even a good analogy because the nail imagery is just so exaggerated that the whole thing ends up insulting to both parties in the video.
What do you think? Are real marriages like this? Are you really only interested in fixing?
If you agree with the video, what conversations do you often get trapped in that mirror this example? If you don’t agree with the video, if a friend showed this to you, what would you say in response?
