I share your miser, bro. My wife swings hot and cold on the subject.
Yes, by providing a photo, we can help you determine if she is even worth trying to convince, or even keep.

People just eventually get it on their own, unfortunately it often takes a disaster of some sort to wake them up. Even after going thru a disaster people still don't prep lol.

If only their government was as good as ours is. I knew in my heart that if I was involved in such a disaster, the government would be there to take care of me and my family and friends. By the end of August 2005 I had a wake up call. I saw the hand writing on the wall. Seeing what happened to the people of New Orleans taught me that we are only numbers to the government. They don't care about us individually. We are only a number, soon to be a statistic on some computer report. Because they don't personally know us, they could care less if we live or die. I for one will not be a statistic on some DC idiot's computer printout if I can help it.
Everyone will someday have an epiphany and know they must prepare for a disaster. Unfortunately, most of them will not realize the need until a few seconds after the SHTF event. Hurricane Katrina and the wonderful job done by the government to abate the human suffering caused by the hurricane that was forecast 5 days ahead of time to be a BAD one was my wake up call. I jumped out of bed and got started. Now under the reign of his Royal Hiney Obumer, where people are not only expendable in a disaster but used for political cannon fodder, I fear for the safety of this country and its citizenry.

I would be very nice, very kind and very caring and let her know that this is important to me and if she can't deal with it then there is a big ole world full of other guys who probably have their little heads stuck in the sand ignoring the fact that this Great Republic is losing the very foundation on which it was built.
All you're doing is attempting to ensure (or insure) that you have the ways and means to take care of the Lady that you love should the path that we are going down continue to slide into a further state of cesspoolism.
(And if anyone else needs some "Couples Counseling" call 1800-Slippy to the Rescue. No fags, lezbos or trannies need call)

Watching Katrina on TV here in England I couldn't help wondering why the people in the low-lying areas of N.O. didn't run for the hills when they saw it coming?

They felt like it was OWED to them to get saved and maybe get some reparations for slavery as well. FUBAR then ensued...

It worked for me. :grin:
This goes along the old adage of "If I have to explain it to you, you wouldn't understand". There are some things that people either get, or they don't. My wife, though not against guns or gun ownership, doesn't quite understand my fascination with them. She's "just not into it". Anymore than I'm into her "crafting".
She kind of lives in her own little box, which I think we all do. Our box is just different from theirs. And that's okay. I keep doing my thing and she does hers. However, if the need ever arises, she'll appreciate my world far more than hers.
In other words, don't sweat it, agree to disagree if that's what it takes, and if it becomes a "real problem" or gets hostile, you're not married to her and that's an easy fix. Send her packing.
