      Jeff...You're wife obviously doesn't respond well to romance... keep beating that bitch with a coat hanger like she's used to you doing! If it ain't broke don't fix it!!!

      First you have to have a "previous" to know whether it is or not. Not likely though, based on my experience. The point is to write the love notes regularly as I have pointed out. Loving thoughts need to be expressed.

      I don't think saying "My previous ___" is all that romantic, personally.

      Um Jeff? There's two things that could possibly be wrong with this...

      One) You didn't write exactly what they said.

      Two) Your wife is misunderstanding your letter.
