Tyrolean (my wife) is very happy that our sons football team lost in the 1st round of the playoffs. This means ski season starts this weekend. The kids are also happy about it.

Skiing has absolutely helped our marriage. But then, we both ski, so it's something that has always provided time for us to be together outdoors. Even during some rocky periods that most marriages go through, skiing (and other outdoor activities) provided a way to put aside any problems and just go do something fun, de-stress, laugh.
Now that we're past that period, skiing is something that we plan our winter lives around as a couple, and with our kids as a family. Most of our friends push their kids in team sports -- soccer, baseball, etc -- but I'm happier to see them do something they will enjoy for the rest of their lives.
I am married to a woman who skis albeit a fair weather skier but a skier non the less . translation she has NO problem withme either going with buddies or sometimes she'll go and either ski om a nice day or just be with me and knit or red in teh lodge on a bad day . Whemnever our kids and grandkids are here we all ski and we all take a week in feb togeter and ski in NH and the Berkshires
She is an XC skier and a tennis hound plays year around and golfs with me too
I hit the jackpot when i married here 43 years ago ! this woman is awesome, bright , looks like a million bucks and is one terrific soft and understanding mate . She's my age 64 but looks like a woman 25 years younger < Damn i love her so!!
