Opening Arguments

The 2.5-year itch

I love you madly! You are my life! Come here, you fool, and ravage me! OK. now I'm bored:

The honeymoon period is officially over two years, six months and 25 days into wedlock, according to new research.

This is the point in the average marriage where both partners take each other, and their relationship, completely for granted.

After the second wedding anniversary couples are far more likely to scatter socks and pants around the house, leave the toilet seat up, hog the remote control and go without make-up.

I can do all the above, any time I want, and nobody minds. It's called divorce. Unfortunately, I started taking myself for granted in the first year.

After OUR 2nd anniversary, it went more like THIS:

-Our CATS took care of the "scattering" thing, so neither of US had to.

-Up, down...doesn't matter. My aim is to keep the latrine clean...and everyone ELSE'S aim will surely help.

-Bought my OWN "universal" remote-problem solved.

-As to makeup...Only wore it ONCE in a high school musical - never had ANY need of it since (but there IS that matter of an upcoming visit to the undertaker).
