I got Starlink and needed to do a test. And my wife and I had a hilarious situation in the middle of the night and I thought it would make for good fodder. Marriage is unfair to most people, at least in my opinion. A modern invention really. But if you are there or are thinking of going there, well, then maybe some of this will help.
Simply brilliant. If you’re on the verge of matrimony, or in the midst of a marriage, pay attention, take notes (yes, write them by hand), bookmark this….it will save you thousands of both dollars and tears. Thanks Dan.
Ha, such a fun film to make as it took about ten minutes to make the list. As she sat in front of me asking some of her 500 daily questions. Oh, just took care of a mouse for her. So, I got that going for me.
Absolutely fantastic Dan!
Yes, took me three marriages to get it right. Same here, introvert me, extrovert here. Ear plugs and a sleep mask, she reads on her backlit ipad in bed until very late, and snores. We get each other, good and bad…acceptance is the key. Well done!
I’m so glad I’m not alone. And yes, acceptance of what a mess we all are. It helps.
I loved this video. I’ve been thinking about it on and off for a day now. It sounds like a great way to be in a marriage. I’m married 25 years this year, and what you’ve described is def not my marriage. We simply do not have that level of intimacy, at all. We parent well together. And that’s been the ongoing struggle — when you do something well together (parenting, which effects other people), is it really worth the disruption to end and start over again. We just keep on keeping on, doing our parenting well, together. But that catheter scene you talk about? I suppose what you’re saying is that marriages like mine (or similar variations) are better than imagined once you reach the end of your life. That might be true. And also, my marriage, but for the kids, is a pretty lonely place, so I’m not sure. Thank you for sharing yourself and your thoughts here and giving us a peek into your relationship. You have a good one there.
It’s a good point. Marriage means different things to different folks. And when children are involved it’s an entirely different thing.
First things first, how is the Starlink connection? I hope it’s good enough for you so you no longer have to park on friends driveways, etc.
As for marriage, next week will be 20 years since I met my now wife and we’ve married for 15 of those years. All the best to you and Amy for the many years ahead!
Starlink is awesome. It works. That’s all that matters. Van hasn’t really moved since I got it.
