"When my husband gets irritable I realize that we've just been spending too much time together, and what he needs is some male companionship. I've gathered a list of family, friends, and old co-workers and I go into the other room and call them and then take the phone to my husband and say, 'Someone wants to talk to you.' Everyone has been quite understanding -- and my husband never thinks about who called who. He's just happy to talk to someone other than me."

-- Harriett, from Lake Jackson, Georgia
