Husband Explains Why He Reads What His Wife Tags Him In

Marriage is hard enough as it is! Busy work schedules, crazy kids and personal appointments all make finding time to communicate nearly impossible.
That's why one woman named Sarah loved to share the little posts she saw on Facebook with her husband, Brad. At first Brad was irritated with how often she tagged him in "meaningless" posts, but then he realized why she was doing it....
Day after day, Sarah, tagged him on dozens of posts from a variety of pages. Cute pets, powerful sayings and funny videos soon took over Brad's timeline - it was just too much!
So, every time the little Facebook notification popped up, he would have the typical male response: click out and ignore the post. Then he realized something important.
Brad shared his realization on his Facebook blog, DaDMuM.
"Every day she tags me in stuff on Facebook. Every day. Like several times a day. As if she bounces around the Internet just looking for random [expletive] to let me know is out there. Memes, events, stories, etc....
I used to find it annoying. I didn't really know why half of it was relevant."
"But over time I've learned that she tags me because it's either funny, insightful or relevant to us and our relationship. Sometimes it helps her tell me something because it's so relevant and she couldn't have said it better herself. I try to make a point of acknowledging it. It doesn't take any effort at all.
To be honest it helps me gauge where she's at and what she's looking at online. Sometimes it forms the basis of our conversations when I get home. So often I come home to a 'Did you see that thing I tagged you in?' As silly as it sounds it helps us communicate.
Women tag men in basically everything I ever post. I always see the same reply of 'I ain't reading that' or 'too long' .... that's it.... The conversation goes no further.
Whatever message she was trying to send him was rejected because of sheer arrogance and inability to take a few [expletive] seconds to read something that was probably important to how she was feeling.
Read the post. Just [expletive] read it. If she tagged you in it, she wants you to look at it. If you were at the park and she said 'hey look at that' would you ignore it? Would you make a snide remark about how much effort it will take you to see it? I think not.
Show her you love her. Let her know you care. Read the [expletive] post!"
Sarah used the posts to communicate with Brad when they had little time to do so face-to-face. This might not be some couples' ideal way to interact, but for Brad and Sarah, these little posts were an insight into each other's minds.
It might sound strange, Sarah tagging Brad in countless Facebook posts has actually brought them closer.
If this sounds familiar, be sure to share this with friends and loved ones. All it takes is a little understanding to make a relationship so much better!
