Double Bind

Conversation in my household tonight:

Me: Here's a quote from Oscar Wilde: A man can be happy with any woman as long as he does not love her.

Him: (Laughter - a good belly laugh.)

Me: Do you love me?

Him: (Silence.)

A bit of an impossible question at that point! Although, of course, any sensible person would say, "Yes! So Wilde missed the boat on that one!"

Harsh. Reminds me of that old song... if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife...

Thanks, all. It's OK. It was fun to trip him up with a double bind. It's hard to catch him out.
