What woman out there doesn’t like a good, tear-jerking romance movie? Or a movie that showcases feminine strength, during which she also gets the guy in the end? Well, if you don’t then this article probably isn’t for you, but if so, read on.
I know someone else who loves them too: my husband. Yes, believe it or not, despite all of the sitcom jokes about women “forcing” their beaus to watch the dreaded chick-flick many men actually enjoy them, regardless of whether or not they have the guts to admit it! My husband is a hopeless romantic who is happiest when the guy gets the girl at the end. If not, he will declare in annoyed tones, that the movie “sucked” pouting all the while.
Sometimes I like to remind him that he is the same man who scored my love of a heart-breaking romance movie. After ten years of being together, he now trusts my judgment completely where movies are concerned. I don’t have to prod at all, and we will curl up in front of the TV with some popcorn to watch the story unfold.
Now, don’t get me wrong: he will still put up one heck of a convincing fight if other guys are around, and even my female friends keep quiet when he starts to rave. It’s all an act, but a guy has a reputation to protect, right?
