Marriage assvice

February 6, 2007

Recently I have talked to one newlywed and one soon to be married person at school and it reminded me of the 2 things (yup, that is pretty much it…sadly) that I have learned in 15 years with my husband:

1. It doesn’t really matter who is right or wrong it is whoever wants it more. Sometimes you just have to suck it and concede because if you don’t the other person might just kill you in your sleep. Take turns and it will all work out.

2. Anyone can love someone because they are charming, nice, kind, funny, good looking, a good kisser, great in bed, can take out the trash, fix a toilet, set up your stereo, shovel the snow, sexy, cute, loving, a good parent, makes a nice living, is willing to listen or whatever it is that floats your boat. It is not what keeps you afloat but the shit that makes you want to kill them, coat them in cement and let drown in their own ineptitude yet still you do not sink is what makes a marriage work. Think hard about all the horrible and annoying things that your partner does and if it does not mean that you want to leave them, well that there is true love.

    They only stink this week (you need new shoes). The things that make me want to coat you in cement, etc, are a whole other ballgame…

    You, I wanted to post on your latest piece about the Heathers at your school, but it’s not working. I have no patience, so I’ll post here.

    I CAN’T BELIEVE THEY WERE SO RUDE! That is so bizarre and nutty! What’s true, though, is for some people, insecurities that make them act like assholes persist into adulthood.

    Frankly, I love geeks. You can come study here.
