I think you have to have a degree of "to each his own". There are interests that my wife has that I'm not familiar with and vice versa. I don't expect her to go out of her way to see how my new rotozip works or who I should go for in my minor league draft. She loves fantasy football, but knows nothing about fantasy baseball. It doesn't interest her so I don't expect her to inquire about it. Same thing with her cooking and gardening shows and books and stuff. I don't know a thing about that stuff. Of course, she likes the frequent compliments on these things, but she doesn't expect me to remember what plant she was talking about last week either.
