Kate Made Me Do This

Don't normally doe these meme's but Kate posted this on her site and I liked it.  And it's my blog so I'll do what I want.  So there.

What are your middle names? Marie and Mario

How long have you been together? This makes me do hard math.  28 years.  Married 22.  If I'm wrong my wife will correct me

Who asked whom out? I asked her out. 

How old are each of you? 45

Whose siblings do/did you see the most? Probably mine since her brother is a git and acts all antisocial and stuff.

Do you have any children together? She has 2 children that I'm pretty sure are mine as well.  Anyway I own them now.

What about pets? A dog and a turtle.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? The years when the kids were very young and day care was eating up a HUGE part of our finances.

Did you go to the same school? Same high school and last 2 years of the same college.  We graduated at the same time.

Are you from the same home town? Yup.

Who is the smartest? I got slightly better grades but she's pretty sharp as well.  So I'd say my wife.

Who is more sensitive? Depends on what about.

Where do you eat out most as a couple? Any place that will allow our boys in the door.  As JUST a couple? 
When do we ever get to eat out as a couple?

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? All up and down the East coast in my Navy days.  Longest haul was Orlando, FL to Saratoga Springs, NY.

Who has the craziest ex? We've been together so long the exes don't count. 

Who has the worst temper? Probably me.  I tend to fume about stuff for a long time.  She lets go of the anger much more quickly.  But she NEVER forgets.

Who does the cooking? Depends.  During the week probably Ellen, weekends, me.  However, the boys cook as well.

Who is more social? Me.

Who is the neat-freak? Ellen, though neat-freak is probably a little strong.  She likes everything in it's place and tries to keep it that way.  I'm not so particular.
Who is more stubborn? Doesn't matter.  Ellen always wins anyway.  She's the WIFE.  Duh.
Who hogs the bed? That would be me.  And I steal all the covers.  Hah!
Who wakes up earlier? Definately me.

Where was your first date? You expect me to remember that far back?  Almost 30 years, remember?

Who has the bigger family? Her in the US.  I have extended family in Italy.

Do you get flowers often? No.

How do you spend the holidays? We split between our families.  It's a schedule worked out over the years.

Who is more jealous? Probably me, but we've been together so long what's to get jealous of?  She's stuck with me now.
How long did it take to get serious? about 5 years.  We were kids when we started dating.

Who eats more? Definately me.  Big Italian appetite even if I don't endulge like that any more.

Who does/did the laundry? Ellen's the only one that can do it right.  So I stay away.

Who’s better with the computer? Duh.  I'm an IT professional.

Who drives when you are together? Mostly me.  Though she drives sometimes too.

No tags.  Post if you feel like it.

Jude: No question the older one is mine. Good or ill, he's mini-me for sure. Though he's not so mini any longer.
