Even though this poem is fictional, I really would leave such a person

You think it's going to be your way or the highway but that's not how it's going to be.
You'd better change your way of thinking if you want to continue to be married to me.
You are not always going to get your way.
You'd better learn that if you want me to stay.
You need to learn that marriage is a two-way street, it's not a one-way street.
When it comes to our marriage, I'm not going to take a back seat.
You don't care about my dreams and desires, you think it's all about you.
If you don't change, I'll have this marriage annulled, that's what I'll do.
You've started laughing because you actually think I'm not serious.
When I talk about this problem, you think it's not worthy to discuss.
It won't be your way or the highway but that is something that I have failed to make clear.
I no longer want you for a wife so I'm going to pack my bags and get the hell out of here.

88 fingers

One of the 647 reasons why I never got married. I will live with them, (I lived with four women), but no ring on the finger.
Good poem.

Coincidincy, you published this on the anniversary (36th!) of my divorce from my first wife. Communication, dialogue, mutual respect - you've got the right list of demands in hand, and have written a fine, progressive narrative of a poem of personal dignity and revolution! Thanks for sharing! SPP
