Ha! Jack, I was in the middle of a leaving a comment and my wi-fi cut out, so I have to re-write it here. What I was going to say was that, even in this day of the starter marriage, beards, and the glorification of bad behavior, I’ve known about a dozen or so couples with healthy marriages. Couples who genuinely love, respect, and care about one another, and put their spouse’s needs first, etc. It’s refreshing to read articles/essays that give a positive alternative to the self-indulgent and misogynistic behavior running rampant. Fear not, I’m sure there are moments that aren’t quite so warm and fuzzy as the ones you hang out for us, but that’s normal. It’s just good to know that there are people in marriages who value and practice the stuff that really matters. Those stories make me smile. So yours and those like the ones I commented on will always be welcome in my feed.
