Happy Wife, Happy Life

Hey everyone. A little over a month ago I traded in my Man-mobile (2012 Dodge Charger RT AWD) for a Dad-mobile (2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus).

The wife and I had been making it work for 3 kids (along with our Mazda CX-9), but packing for roadtrips in either car took more planning than the actual trip.

I miss the hemi, but the wife is happy to have automatic sliding doors and Uconnect Theater. You know what they say, "happy wife, happy life."

Congratulations on the new car! For me, it doesn't feel normal to be bragging about buying a minivan but these Pacificas so comfortable. They definitely are not the fastest thing on the road but they have so much versatility. Luckily my wife let me keep "our" 16 Charger Scat Pack so I can still have some fun.

That’s why you buy the van for your wife and keep the charger. You did it all wrong

They are nice vans though. But yeah, I wouldn’t have wanted to give up my car. We run a Pacifica and sedan, plus my old Dakota for trucky stuff. But the better half got the van for kiddo transport and I kept my ubersedan. That’s how you’re supposed to do it silly. 😉

Starting in 1988 we raised three kids in a series of minivans and now each of them has their own minivan! The only difference is they have Honda and Toyota vans. They are working fron for them but perhaps there will be a Pacifica in their future.

I like the phrase "Happy spouse, happy house." Us men need to be content too In any case, I'm more than happy with my Charger Scat Pack, and my wife loves her Pachy - we traded in a Jeep GC which was fine for our two little ones, but the van just made too much sense.
