Married Life

A scene from the film Fight Club

I have been married for 6 months, so yeah, I’ll be the first to admit I’m a rookie when it comes married life. I’ve never had much of a long term relationship before I met my wife, mostly because I sort of knew that the women before her weren’t “the one.” Rather than waste my time, I simply stopped dating them. 


When I met my wife we moved quickly. We moved in together within 3 months, got engaged in 6 months, and got married in 16.

Like any relationship, we have our disagreements. Lets not sugar coat it, married people fight. It is my belief and according to a lot of other people that fighting is normal in a relationship. It’s when you don’t fight that I think problems are created. 

My parents fought and still fight. They’ve been married for 30 years and I think they’re happy. They have their good days and bad. The same could be said for my wife and I, although our fighting differs from a lot of relationships. We have yet to have a huge fight. 

A lot of the time I am oblivious that my wife is even mad at me. There was one time that I remember when we both got home but apparently I had said something that upset my better half. I didn’t know. She went straight to the bedroom, I just figured she went to the living room. At the same time, I started cleaning the kitchen, and washing the dishes. About 10 minutes pasted and I got an idea.

“Hey babe, do you want to rent a movie tonight?”

A few minutes past and I continued to do the dishes. My wife finally came out

“Did you realize that I’m mad at you?” she said in a sad teary eyed tone.

I actually laughed and told her no. She laughed too, but was still upset with me. We talked it over and I apologized for being an oblivious ass**** then we laughed at the whole situation. A lot of our fights are like that.

We have never gotten into a screaming match. I think my wife refuses to. I’ll admit I’ve raised my voice a few times but quickly correct myself. Sometimes I do wish that we’d get into a huge screaming match, not for the argument, but the post argument festivities. We have yet to experience make up sex.

** Note

I just read this to my wife and she says “We’ve had make up sex before!” 

I’m pretty sure we haven’t, so again, I’m oblivious!

  1. Hi!
    I’ve been married for just over 7 years, and my husband STILL doesn’t know what’s going on half the time – you’re not alone!
    And he won’t fight with me either, no matter how hard I try 🙂
