I was reading a book in which the main characters are fighting and then of course they go get it on. That never happens to me! When we fight, my husband gets all depressed and I don't have a chance in hell of gettin' some. Not that I want to encourage fights, but... ;-)

I don't really need any villains or spies or cruel men or long separations or blackmail or secret babies in my life... don't even particularly want to go all night... but a little make-up sex would be a fun change.

I'l pass on make up sex 'cause I hate fighting. depends on the novel though..I'll pass on anything Lora Leigh-ish 'cause that's a bit much fo me to actually,um, do I think (like reading it though!) I'd hafe to have a nice sweet romance with the perfect exSEAL hunky body dude but no terrorists after me..basically lemme pick a few heroes from the books but live a nice simple life!wink

I'd like to a wealthy heiress who is free to do what she pleases if/when she pleases.

I don't like fights, but since they're an inevitable part of every marriage, I think I should at least get a reward!

I'm with you, Willa.  My hubby sulks after a fight.   I wish he wanted to make up and make out, but no such luck for me. :( 

I don't need to have my life at risk, but hey, a little excitement might be nice...maybe being stranded on a deserted island with my hubby...mmm...I think I need to find a way to plan that (with someone to rescue us a few days--or months--later).  If he has nothing to stress about, he is much friendlier. :)

I would like a little more spontaneity! Which isn't easy with full time jobs and two children under 8 years old.

I want my house to be magically cleaned.  All tidy without effort.  No one in romances ever seems to have to clean.

I often think it would be nice if my husband had some of the nice money that goes along with being an Earl or a Duke in my favorite historicals. Some nice money, a little power, some gorgeous clothes, and a nanny and a cook. *sigh*

sex,romance, and orgasams. ok that was tmi i guess. but i am not healthy physically enough to engage in those sort of activities and from what i remember i never had anything happen to me the way they described in my books. but really the romance part is what i would like my dh show more of. bring me flowers (w/o being asked or it be for valentines day or my birthday) call me honey or sweetheart, you know basic romance things. i keep telling him that it does not matter if you saw a rock in a parking lot or a leaf that he thathe thought was pretty and brought it to me. it does not have to expensive or anything like that. but he does not get it. i guess that is the differecnce between men and women.

sorry i got off topic.   :))

No worries. I mean other than the crazies that are after these couples sometimes...lol. They never seem to have to worry about the everyday things. You know... working all the time, living paycheck to paycheck, grocery shopping, taking care of the kids, school, chores around the house... all of it!

 

Oooh. The makeup sex is a part of my marriage occasionally.....its really fun, lolol.

Another one - it'd be great if my kid was always adorable. And if I was always totally patient and loving and never wished I could send him back.

Yeah, I could have written that, too.  My dh isn't very romantic (he used to be...sigh) or affectionate.  After 10 years, I doubt things will change for the better, either.  lol

I would like to have a husband that is more caring and understanding. Sure sex is great but having someone comfort you when things aren't going well would be nice too! I don't have that here!

Fighting in our house is like an aphrodisiac(not serious fighting). An arguement about who forgot put the trashbag back in the can turns into wrestling about who's going to put the trashbag back in the can before the other one  turns to sex in the laundry room.  It's hilarious.

I guess I would wish for looking perfect after two kids , energy for doing 20 million things, and a husband that was a home more often(mine travels for work).

I love my life but man it feels like deja vu everyday. Same thing over and over.

I would just appreciate the housekeepers and cooks that the ladies in the books seem to have.   I would settle for being thin and not having to shave my legs. Seriously, did women just let it all grow out in the regency days? blush You know what I mean?  

My Partner is more romantic than me even after 18 years, so I would love to be able to be more of a sex kitten in return.  I am all - the laundry needs to go in the dryer and the dogs need baths and the kitchen floor is sticky and the frenchdoors need to be cleaned and I've got to water the gardens..................I don't know how you all with kids do anything resembling sex, let alone romance. 

Do I not sound happy?  I am happy, just not very romantic.  I would like to have a bigger romance gene.

I want the hot sex with a sexy man who's crazy about me.  Also the interesting job that seems to go with every contemporary heroine. Doesn't bookstore owner or art dealer sound much more interesting than lab tech?

Although I agree with a lot of the stuff everyone's naming here, for me......

Just having a nice guy to have the opportunity to do some of that stuff would be great for me! lol

Just an average guy would do....even though I love reading my alpha males, I don't think I'd actually want one of my very own.

OMG! This thread is hilarious.

Not having to worry about money would be my top wish (I already have a nice, romantic guy who's CRAZY about OS, thinks I'm the most beautiful woman in the whole world, etc.) I don't want to be rich or have a big house but I'd like to have enough that I could travel or work on something that really interested me.

Mine is pretty simple.  You know the parts in the book where....he frames her face..kisses her..pretty much ravishes her against the wall?.....I'd like that one...(o:
