a lot of Polish wives like to go through a near death experience at least once a week.

only this week my wife tried to hoover when the football was on.

One account is joint but it's for paying off the mortgage and it's from transfers from my other account.

Joint doesn't make any difference as I effectively pay for the things that matter. It's not really her fault that Poland pays peanuts to some managers.

Haha!

Luckily ma missus enjoys football (and rugby) and even supports the same team so things aren't that bad :)

Yep agreed 100%, the managers make the cash and the directors pocket it....story of Poland really.

Every time she lights a cigarette she tries to steal my lighter. If I don't snatch it back it disappears. On our first flight to Poland, back when lighters were completely forbidden, security found 14 lighters in her purse.

do not take this badly, Seanus (it would upset me to upset you, you seem an eminently reasonable sort of person from your posts), but i do find strange the habit of talking about her money, my money and so on when one is married. My wife stopped working a long time ago, shortly after we married, but I still considers that what I earn is 50pc hers..it is just ours, not hers or mine.. i think this outlook does make things easier..

Welcome to the world of being married man! Enjoy! Thank god I never went through with it ;)

how can you welcome someone to a world which you're not a part of?

Plus, I'm not going to jeopardise crucial relationships just for coloured paper. I don't see why I should have to live on less for helping many when the creeps of this world make much more for destroying the world. Screw that! I am fully behind her on that one.

Quite easily. With a welcome mat and some fireworks.
I basically lived that life for most of my years in Poland.

I know, bullfrog. I throw stacks of cash into things as I see it as an investment in us. Maybe I should be more accurate and say 'the money she earns' and 'the money I earn' but it is, for all intents and purposes, ours. Sorry, you made a perfectly valid and sound point, bullfrog. Thanks for keeping me on my toes with regards to accuracy :) :)

Any quirky behaviour or?

nothing worth noting/posting apart maybe an undue (in my eyes!) devotion to JK

Jarosław Kaczyński???

come on gumishu don't tell me that's enough for you wanting to marry her..there's at least another couple million polish women who feel the same about jk ....

I'm serious - I have instantly fallen in love with her ;) - kiss her for me, will you :)

btw all those millions of women you mention are already taken - there is growing demand for PiS-loving women here ;)

My wife complains that I work too hard. Then she complains that we are poor. The strange thing is that I don't work too hard and we are not poor. As a rule I'm not a fan of americanisms but "Go figure!" hits the spot.

I am lucky. My wife doesn`t. She is so intelligent that she perfectly sees through JK`s bullshyt. :):):):):)

Off topic, I know, but the word 'strange' made me think of something that happened to me today. I've heard just about every excuse for missing a lesson from my 'zaoczne' students, but today one of them asked if she could leave early beacuse there was a special mass in Sokółka, her town, to celebrate what she called the Vatican's recognition of the 'miracle' that occured there a year ago today when the image of Jesus Christ appeared in a communion host/wafer. I asked her if it just kind of looked like a guy with a beard but she wasn't sure. She was more interested in getting back because her house is next to the church and her family was keen to rent out rooms to the many pilgrims expected. I advised her to charge them double.

I've seen a Polish woman clean her child's face with saliva on a tissue. I suppose she's never heard of handi-wipes. Her poor kid!

My mother used to do that and she is not Polish. In her defense, the only handi-wipes available at the time were the lemon scented ones from KFC.

A classic of 70s childhood UK & Ireland I would say.

Together with not actually having a clue which brand of clothing you wore, ever.
