Right? Don't sugar coat it, how do you really feel?

It's not all bad - at least he's better than 49%...

The real question is: How would s/he know...

by trying out tons of husbands

That may be true, but you Madame, are exceptionally rude! Good day! >:n(

No, she is not rude. She is only eager to be introduced to my spiked club

Indeed, my husband is unique, you cheeky mare! (And I haven't even met him yet!)

I had: "your man is an average husband" :))

Yeah, i heard the nordics were pretty blunt.

Its sounds like a diss but it could be also meant in the sense of "normal".

Maybe for danes, it is not an insult at all, because they think, no one is better than another. I don't know :)

Danish girlfriend next to me says it is definitely an insult.

Behind every successful man is a surprised woman.

"Din mand" aka "Your husband" can also be understood as or read as "your man" or "this man" can it not? If not please explain the wording to me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sll-ttt

It would be denne her mand.

Vil du har nogle is til det?

Thank you for reminding me, Duo

The word gennemsnitlig sounds so cute

Good thing he's average. There are a lot of bad douches who are after women. And there are plenty on the other half who are either gay, interested only in earning money or just not interested in women. So, I'd say "average" is plenty good.
