The Five Toughest Questions Women Ask – And Their Answers

The five questions are:

What are you thinking?
Do you love me?
Do I look fat?
Do you think she is prettier than me?
What would you do if I died?

What makes these questions so bad is that every one is guaranteed to explode
into a major argument and/or divorce if the man does not answer properly, which
is to say, dishonestly. For example:

1. What are you thinking?

The proper answer to this question, of course, is, Im sorry if Ive been
pensive, dear. I was just reflecting on what a warm, wonderful, caring,
thoughtful, intelligent, beautiful woman you are and what a lucky guy I am to
have met you.

Obviously, this statement bears no resemblance whatsoever to what the guy was
really thinking at the time, which was most likely one of five things:

How fat you are.
How much prettier she is than you.
How he would spend the insurance money if you died.

According to the Sassy article, the best answer to this stupid question came
from Al Bundy, of Married With Children, who was asked it by his wife, Peg. If
I wanted you to know, Al said, Id be talking instead of thinking.

The other questions also have only one right answer but many wrong answers:

2. Do you love me?

The correct answer to this question is, Yes. For those guys who feel the need
to be more elaborate, you may answer, Yes, dear. Wrong answers include:

I suppose so.
Would it make you feel better if I said yes?
That depends on what you mean by love.
Does it matter?
Who, me?

3. Do I look fat?

The correct male response to this question is to confidently and emphatically
state, No, of course not and then quickly leave the room. Wrong answers

I wouldnt call you fat, but I wouldnt call you thin either.
Compared to what?
A little extra weight looks good on you.
Ive seen fatter.
Could you repeat the question? I was thinking about your insurance policy.

4. Do you think shes prettier than me?

The she in the question could be an ex-girlfriend, a passer-by you were
staring at so hard thay you almost caused a traffic accident or an actress in a
movie you just saw. In any case, the correct response is, No, you are much
prettier. Wrong answers include:

Not prettier, just pretty in a different way.
I dont know how one goes about rating such things.
Yes, but I bet you have a better personality.
Only in the sense that shes younger and thinner.
Could you repeat the question? I was thinking about your insurance policy.

5. What would you do if I died?

Correct answer: Dearest love, in the event of your untimely demise, life would
cease to have meaning for me and I would perforce hurl myself under the front
tires of the first Dominos Pizza truck that came my way. This might be the
stupidest question of the lot, as is illustrated by the following stupid joke:

Dear, said the wife. What would you do if I died?

Why, dear, I would be extremely upset, said the husband. Why do you ask such
a question?

Would you remarry? persevered the wife.

No, of couse not, dear, said the husband.

Dont you like being married? said the wife.

Of course I do, dear, he said.

Then why wouldnt you remarry?

Alright, said the husband, Id remarry.

You would? said the wife, looking vaguely hurt.

Yes, said the husband.

Would you sleep with her in our bed? said the wife after a long pause.

Well yes, I suppose I would, replied the husband.

I see, said the wife indignantly. And would you let her wear my old clothes?

I suppose, if she wanted to, said the husband.

Really, said the wife icily. And would you take down the pictures of me and
replace them with pictures of her?

Yes. I think that would be the correct thing to do.

Is that so? said the wife, leaping to her feet. And I suppose youd let her
play with my golf clubs, too.

Of course not, dear, said the husband. She is left-handed.
