Last night my husband and I were watching television, and, at the end of a particularly moving scene, I looked over at him, tears in my eyes, to see his face dry as the proper way to act in an Oscar Wilde play.  We then had the following exchange:

Me:  You have a heart of stone

Mike:  Yeah, but you knew that already.
 
Me:  I know, but it’s getting harder and harder to pretend.
 
Mike:  Honey, that’s what marriage is for.  You get to stop pretending.

    Do his eyes water when he chops onions? If not, be sure you weren’t accidentally duped into marrying a very convincing android.

    Belated congratulations on the marriage!

    I think any long-standing commitment is a moment to stop pretending!
