Men and Women
My husband has very many interests, he likes computers, additionally likes cars, but, I am not interested in both computers and cars. Me? I like watching movies, additionally like reading books. My husband also likes reading books, but he doesn’t like reading my books. He thinks, his books – every one (of them) are all better for reading than my books.
(On) weekends we both don’t go to work, (we) can rest a little bit at home. I hope (my) husband and child together at home read books for a little bit, listen to music for a little bit, but he likes going out to play basketball, play soccer with (his) friends. I am not interested in those sports, (I) think (they are) very uninteresting. Yesterday, he made me try for once, to go to watch their game for one time. His friends’ wives are also at the soccer field, I introduced (my)self to them, said (I was) very happy to be able to know them. They, some think the husbands’ game is interesting, some think (it’s) uninteresting.
Maybe men don’t understand women, women don’t understand men? Though he doesn’t understand me, I don’t understand him either, but (we) cannot say who (is the one that) has fault. I love him a lot, I know he also loves me a lot, we also both love (our) child a lot, so, we are still a happy family.
