Taking a car down for maintenance without having to consider the family's transportation logistics needs. Not having to fix dinner or clean the kitchen. Drinking more than two frosty beverages without the junior DARE police evaluating my BAC or my lifespan prospects. Being able to watch a movie at 10 PM without having anyone else go "Awwww, turn it down man!" Eructating or flatulating without criticism or applause. Falling asleep in the recliner because it's too hard to go upstairs and sunrise is only a few hours away anyhow.

You know, the stuff we used to do when we were single guys between rounds of coping with all the hot chicks throwing themselves at us.

Guess I'm going to have to develop higher aspirations... "What do I do all day?" indeed. Sheesh.

Re: Too much togetherness


to original poster: I highly recommend this book. You can likely find it in paperback or at the library. It requires effort to work through it with your spouse, but you are expending a lot of effort being miserable as well.
