"He Thinks He'll Keep Her" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Mary Chapin Carpenter. It was released in December 1993 as the sixth single from the album Come On Come On. The song was Carpenter’s first number-one single on the Radio & Records country music charts, although it peaked at number 2 on the BillboardHot Country Songs chart. It was written by Carpenter and Don Schlitz.
The song was motivated in response to a 1970s Geritol TV commercial in which a man points to his wife’s many accomplishments and attributes, and then concludes with "My wife...I think I'll keep her". The song itself, however, is about a woman who leaves an unhappy marriage, despite outward signs that it had been happy if not stable.
