J-Hulk, has somebody gotten a little "gun shy". First one scare you a little?

Wife and I celibrate 20 years married (we dated/lived together for 3 years b4 that)on 9-17 (this month). Boy time flies. And while it's been give and take for both of us, me more give than take (that's my story and I'm sticking too it). I wouldn't trade it for anything else. And we are each others best friend. That helps ALOT!

Hobby, wife's gone for over 3 years, yay!!

In all seriousness, if your partner really makes you choose then you need a new partner unless you're spending the baby milk money at the hobby shop; then shame on you! Stop filling the closet and BUILD those kits!

I am reminded of the great Jack Benny comedy routine wherein a crook pulls a gun on him and says "Your money or your life!" A long pause ensues and Benny turns to him and says, "Just a minute OK? I'm thinking about it!!

If I gave up my wife, she'd take all of my models in the settlement, so I have to vote for her, for my hobby's sake.
Seriously, I'd take her in a heartbeat.

Wife. When we got married she knew I built models and if I wanted one, I bought it, and didn't care what the price was. Not only that, I have yet to find a model that would keep me warm on a cold night.

Would have to say the wife but I doubt I will ever have to make a choice as she has been fully supportive of my hobby. (It keeps me at home and not wandering the streets.)
Wayne I enjoy getting older, especially when I consider the alternative.

Both.
My wife of 17 years understands my hobby. She knows that sometimes I have to spend a bit of time cut off from the rest of the family. But I also carefully divide family time and hobby time so that the family gets the major portion (and best) part of my life.
You gotta make compromises in life, or it all goes in the crapper. No fun there.................

Wife or hobby?
I'll miss her...really I will miss her!
Just kidding.
Not being married this is not really a choice but on a more serious note it iIS a hobby ; not a matter of life and death.
Damn It's a lot more important than that!

My wife definetly. There would be no satisfaction for me if I didn't get to show her the different stages of my models that I have completed.I feel a great sense of accomplishment when she says wow that looks great.
