Marmite and marriage! (Lighthearted)

(87 Posts)

DH and I have been married for 17years, through all this time he has known there is a line that you do not cross, the marmite line, on one side is me the hater, the other is him the lover, I am quite happy for him to indulge in his vile habit and there is space in the cupboard for him to store the various jars he collects, I believe I am showing a level of tolerance that is above and beyond what most women would endure.

He knows that if he wants to indulge and spread the sludge on his bread he can but he must keep it away from me and anything that I cherish and hold dear.

The bastard has introduced MY dog to it and the bitch likes it. I don't know who has betrayed me more, him for crossing the line or her for siding with him on the love it/hate it argument

I can't believe he would risk 17 years of marriage for this.

AIBU or should I LTB

love love love

Marmite and rocket sandwiches are very good.

BUT
You have to perfect the technique of wrapping it around the knife to avoid getting a sticky jar. Now having a sticky jar is BU and

hate hate hate

Can't stand marmite but I am partial to a twiglet blush BOVRIL on toast all the way!

Best sandwich when on a diet: marmite and fried egg.

Does he sniff dogs arses on a regular basis or was it a one off?

If marmite is heaven why the need to combine it with jam etc?

DH says it smells like dogs arse

How on earth does he know what a dogs arse smells like?! grin

Is the love/hate thing a myth? Thought people either really really love it or really really hate it. No sort of middle ground.

HoneyDragon Mon 21-Jan-13 07:33:04

Yup I'm another who appreciates marmite for cooking and flavouring but wouldn't notice if they stopped selling it.

The love/hate things a myth.

How is this fucking confused awful stuff not banned yet. Smells of giphmm, makes me want to giphmm. Just awful.

And all of its foul confused derivatives.

BAN MARSHITE!!!

I adore it . Have it on crumpets with cheese , spread it on ready rolled puff pastry as a thin layer which I then roll up to make little spirally biscuits that I can't think what they're called . Love it .

DH however literally cannot stomach it . As I learned when we were first living together . I accidentally shoved a plateful of marmite toast under his nose , only to watch in bemusement as he went first white , then green , then threw up , then went to bed with a migraine . And he hasn't got any better since .

I have however given it to all my dc's who also love it . So he is in a minority .

Bogeyface Sun 20-Jan-13 23:37:55

grin DH just said "she is into fanjo sniffing dogs and he has to move out?"

I think he has a point!

Bogeyface Sun 20-Jan-13 23:36:11

Hey, you open a can you're gonna get worms! grin

I've given him the ultimatum he's moving in with bogey Is he?! Ah.....how to tell DH he is no longer needed.....not sure you can cite Marmite in a divorce....

Yep, he remembers cycling past it when he was a nipper.
He's spent the last 10 mins reliving fond memories whilst eating more marmite.
This is not what I had planned!

Thanks for that Mayan, I've given him the ultimatum he's moving in with bogey.smile
