Married life #1

Many people have asked me how married life is. Thing is, I haven’t been able to encapsulate this experience into a succinct sentence. Because married life is constantly evolving and because everyday, you are discovering new things about your partner.

Take last night, for instance. I was sitting on the loo and having a wee and shouting at the husband for leaving his “mark” behind in the bowl. The door suddenly opened and he burst into the hobbit hole of a loo.

We stared at each other for a moment.

Can’t a girl wee in peace? I asked.

Oh, he said. He then left the loo and it was almost as if that encounter had never happened.

That’s married life for you.
