While I am not financially independent I am very independent in that I don’t do the little woman thing very well.
I am very straight I say what I think I was once told I communicated like a man It was Intended as a compliment i did not really feel it was.
I lived most of my life with my husband away so I am used to sorting stuff without reference to anyone, that’s made for interesting moments since he’s retired.

Away for up to two years at a stretch, then come home and expect to continue barking orders to a wife who has managed absolutely everything without him.
It made for some great arguments in our house when I was growing up!!
