Nobody said that explicitly. Your prior post suggested that you found it extremely and odd that a husband and wife wouldn’t discuss this and know the answer about each other. I guess this was just my way of saying that I don’t find it odd at all. Perhaps it’s that we’ve been married so long, but we never talked about this when we were just dating or first married either.
I like Leslie Joan’s comment. What’s your favorite….? just isn’t an easily answered or to us an especially meaningful question or conversation. My wife and I have always talked about how wonderful a particular assemblage of colors and hues of early leafing/flowering spring trees look, she’ll always call me outside if she spots a rainbow, we can discuss the detailed specifics of the combination of color and pattern on a particular new flower for a good fifteen minutes, but ‘what is your favorite?’ just wasn’t interesting. I did ask her what her favorite color was yesterday and she said blue after a little thought, but also told me she found in an odd question.
