And yet you continue to do it...My husband is a low 2.5. He has never taken a lesson, and he has only played one social doubles match in his entire life. Suffice it to say he doesn't play tennis.
Nevertheless, we will sometimes hit, especially if we are trying to think of something to do with our son. He has also come out with me and hit so I could work on something (getting used to a new technique). I can convince him to do this by telling him that if I don't get some practice I will have to pay a pro to practice with me.
I obviously try to get the ball right back to him, and I don't rip winners. It usually isn't much fun, honestly, because he is obviously so miserable doing this.
I think it all comes down to expectations... but if you are both just out for fun, and you don't appear to go out of your way to make her look foolish I don't see a problem. I have been on both sides of the net... had to deal with some interesting issues... but in the end everything worked out. Only if things got serious did things get a little heated, but isn't that like everything in life.I'm curious about how everyone else approaches this....
When you've been married a very long time, even happily married, there are lots of things you do for the sake of doing them. Kind of like how I keep going golfing with my husband, even though I'd much prefer to take nap. 'Nuff said.And yet you continue to do it...
Well actually... we have it worked out where she does the things she loves to do... and I do the things I love to do... and then we spend quality time when we are together. Nobody is or should be anyones everything.When you've been married a very long time, even happily married, there are lots of things you do for the sake of doing them.

We go out and hit together...me drilling her instead of playing sets so we can get a good workout in.
Some things are really best done in the privacy of the home.
Are we talking about tennis? :twisted:And he doesn't mind getting spanked by me.
