I'm working on the husband/wife scenario until said otherwise. I like the middle version best so far and will continue working on his design. The wife I'm still working on, as well as her purse-bot.
i picture the husband having varying personalities, from loving his wife and willing to get her purse without complaint, to a gruff, grouchy fellow who reluctantly leaves the sports game to pick it up. Or there's always the big macho manly husband to fall back on.
