My husband and I recently bought an older home. We were going to renovate it as we lived in it. Unfortunately, the home did not have central Manchester air conditioning. My husband decided that could wait as we worked on other renovation projects such as remodeling the kitchen, installing new floors, and updating the home’s electrical wiring. I was okay with the hot house until I got pregnant. By the fourth month, I was hot. By the sixth month, I was miserable. At that point, I gave my husband an ultimatum: get me air or else! It was installed within a few days, and I spent the rest of my pregnancy calm and cool as I waited for the arrival of my baby.

I honestly could not have suffered through another week as hot and miserable as I was. My husband’s decision to act quickly and get me what I wanted save my marriage.
