Remember when you first started dating your husband? Once upon a time, you couldn’t keep your mind off him. You wanted to be with him every minute. Your heart told you he was “the one”—so you started planning a wedding, your Dad walked you down the aisle, and you all lived happily ever after. The end.
That’s where movies would tell us the story wraps up, but we know it’s just the beginning. Because after the honeymoon you discovered he leaves his socks crumpled on the floor, or he insists on watching the football game when you’ve been waiting months for the Masterpiece premiere.
It seems to be a fact of life: When you live with someone, you will get annoyed by that someone. So how are we supposed to keep enjoying our marriages, even as our husbands drive us crazy?
