    My wife would wear it out once, then around the house for painting and sleeping. :D

    Congrats! I wouldn't trade marriage for anything. A good one is just the best.

    Yeah, I could see that happening!
    While the post was made tongue-in-cheek, I think I'll actually buy her one. It's not too expensive. And I haven't bought her anything for a little while. It's a fun little pre-wedding gift.

    Also thank you! We've been together for nearly two years now and known each other for much longer than that. She's great. I'm incredibly happy and lucky to be marrying her. :)

    Buy the t-shirt & nix the idea of getting married.

    But that graphic erroneously makes the bass player look cool.
    She may wear it but no one will believe it.

    So you're telling me I should wear it...?
    I don't swing that way, friend.
    Not even going to bother with your other suggestion.

    Yeah. I guess that's true. It takes a special kind of bass player to make bass look cool. Not just any old average Joe bassist can pull it off.

    Congratulations! Just like you, my wife were together two years (and knew each other for many years prior) before getting married. We'll have our 40th wedding anniversary next May. Here's hoping you have an equally long and happy relationship :thumbsup:

    Any girl who marries a bass player KNOWS they are cool. My wife went out with several musicians before me and says bass players are easily the coolest :cool:

    Thank you so much good sir! And congratulations to you on a lasting marriage. Not many are as lucky as you.
    I might be young but I'm old-school and optimistic and I take the "till death do us part" very literally.
    (But I'll just have to start buying her better clothing to make that happen. :smug: )

    Speaking of fashion I once bought my wife a matching belt and bag, she got EXTREMELY upset but on the bright side the vacuum cleaner hasn't worked this well in years.

  9. I was very cunning in snagging my wife. I played guitar first so she thought I was cool, Then I switched to bass after we were married and it was already too late for her to escape.

    Now she would just wear the shirt because she knows she just has to go with it.

    Just how many of us do you think know your wife well enough to answer?
    And why does she know so much about other people's husbands?

    My wife and I have been married 29 years this year. She loves the fact that I play music. She would wear that shirt around the house but not in public.

    My wife has a shirt that says I Married My Favorite Bass Player. She wears it once a month or so. (We each have hundreds of t shirts, it's not like she HAS to wear that one.)

    P.S. 36 years for us. When we married the bass and amp were sitting in a closet. When I started playing again, there was no complaint. She's a keeper.

    Reminds me of a Socrates quote: By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.

    Congrats. Get her the T shirt and the flowers :)
