Re: does anyone elses....

When I met my wife, she tried Aikido once, but didn't really follow up on it. There was a public suggestion at our wedding that I should reduce the number of nights that I train. I figured it was a fair compromise. 10 years later, my wife has been practicing for close to two years and currently ranks 4th kyu. We don't have enough training days in the week to balance between us both training and looking after "junior". Consequently, we don't actually get to practice with each other, but she enjoys Aikido a lot. She's looking forward to our return to Japan next month when she can train with my Sensei for the first time.

Liking Aikido has nothing to do with a relationship, there's plenty of single people out there that don't like it either. It's not really important is it? If you want to keep the relationship, you just need to ensure that it has balance.

A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
