My hubby has less training than we do, is from the lower-social-class neighbor hood, is significantly less advanced in a variety of ways than i will be, is less committed, doesn’t have curiosity about present activities or even the wider globe around him, is not well-read, has siblings who are unemployed or low-skilled employees — and yet, he and I also are perfect together. I am treated by him like silver, makes me laugh and draws me personally away from my mind, where i’d choose to live more often than not. We’ll be hitched 7 years this New Year’s that is coming Day. (Time flies, huh, Evan? ) Evan is SO right concerning the “checklist” nonsense. Fiona, you should read Lori Gottlieb’s book that is excellent “Marry Him” if you’re at all thinking about engaged and getting married and achieving a household 1 day.
