Yes.My wife and I enjoy pampering each other – doing little things that say “I’m thinking of you.” Putting the toilet seat down is such a little thing. I can’t imagine why so many men get up in arms over it. It’s certainly not the hill I’m going to die on in the so-called "battle of the sexes."
I agree completely, also thinking the same way. However, sometimes there are unintended lapses. It is the women that make such a big issue of toilet seat position, criticizing men for any lapse that I have problems with. I have never lived with such a woman but have heard of and from them.
Yours sounds like a healthy relationship. One where your wife wouldn't raise hell if you occasionally forget to lower the toilet seat.
Do wives actually raise hell if their husbands forget to put the seat back in the appropriate position? .......
Most wives, like most people in general, are reasonable, considerate, and wouldn't think of raising hell over something so trivial. But I know a few men who were not fortunate enough to be married to a reasonable mate.
There are controlling, irrational people of both sexes. Thankfully, most people aren't like that and I try to avoid those who are.
