Look her square in the eye and say "The garage is mine, woman! Get back in the kitchen where you belong!"

And then......

her response was "um . . . okay. the bedroom is mine. go back onto the couch where you belong."

i said "i would, but theres no room for me to sit because you never clean."

I would probably have to rethink the whole getting married and building a house together then. It only gets worse when you get married. Really- I swear!! If you can't fix things before hand it will be that much more of a sore subject once your married.

i feel the need the emphasize that while conversations my fiancee and i have seem horrible at times when conveyed -

[for example, the time i told her id lock her in the closet if she didnt shut up, she told me she would poison my food, and i told her id shove her down a flight of stairs and laugh the entire time she was falling]

- we really get along great. we both just have a weird sense of humor. we get along great and when we have a serious disagreement, we resolve it as quickly as is feasible with serious discussion where both parties voice their concerns. however stupic debates like "his car is faster than mine" quickly degenerate into "youre stupid" "shut up" "you shut up" "shut up before i slice your kneecaps off" "you dont have the guts, you weasel" etc etc. i love our relationship and i wouldnt change anything about it but when i convey the conversations to other people, they think weve got a problem

if shed just lay off the booze...

I'd hate to see you two really fight.....

Ya know, most guys try to make the garage a remote outpost to retreat to in times of trouble... Kinda like the naughty kid being sent to his room.... the room with the TV, DVD, XBox, computer, and other cool toys in it....

If you have 'your own' money, buy what you want with it.
If all your money is 'our' money, then you can wait with the lift to see if actually could use one. It can always be installed afterwards.

I'd love one and would actually use it, but I get by just fine without it and I HATE working on my truck.

Depends on how large the life Insurance is, that one could backfire.
