Not to analyze this too much, but if a relationship is breaking up over a hobby, it's not breaking up over a hobby

+1

Replace "brewing" with "fishing" and head over to a fishing forum. You will see the same stuff "she says i fish too much". This is about more than brewing. Maybe you two should see a counselor.

I dont think the problem is that he brews. I think the problem is that she does not like his brew.

I think the main problem is coming here to ask for advice about a marriage. :)

Jeff Rankert is indeed a lucky guy; I can vouch for that first hand.

Thanks for that, Gordon. 

She has learned to deal with me in the best possible way!

None of them asked for advice, everyone offered it up unsolicited... knowing their just trying to help/be supportive. I agree this is not the place to bring up marital/dating issues...

This is incredibly ironic even if most of you probably don't get why. I'm literally busting at the seams. LMAO!!  ;D

 THat maked two of us, Major. Buthey, this is "the Pub". And what do guys do at the pub, but drink, and complain about life. We're guys. It's what we do. A lot of us on here have been around each other for a while, and though never having met, there is some type of bond. So, while I myself would not ask for advice, I would sure as heck head to the pub, get a beer, and let some stuff off my chest.

I'm literally busting at the seams.

I love how "literally" has come to mean "very much so" instead of "literally".  Like when people say "I'm literally freezing to death"!  Really?  You're actually, literally, non-metaphorically enduring the final phases of death by freezing?

Not to jump to conclusions...if you are literally busting at the seams, you should probably get yourself to a medical facility!

This is FAR from any pub I go to.

LMAO. Is it really possible to laugh that hard? :D

Busting at the seams being a metaphor for laughing very hard - and in the literary sense I was. So there. :P

The problem with busting at the seams is that you lose so much good homebrew.

Me?  I just wrap a few turns of duct tape around my head and I'm good.
