You caught my attention with the first line and held it to the last... My husband would agree with your assessment, thankfully he is one who was willing to adventure, as I am both artist and writer... (waiting to blossom into the world of literary publication)... anyway... This was good. Your view of marriage stated in the end is as it should be.... marriage is supposed to be for a life time... going into it with any other attitude sabotages it before it starts. It requires a commitment and a daily choice to love your spouse, for better or for worse.... to the point of constant distraction if need be This was charmingly refreshing to read... thank you for sharing.
LOL....So, I guess artists and writers should marry themselves. They can feed off each other and forget about the talentless folks. they're all boring.
