Everyone thinks that they know what marriage will be like, but the truth is less exciting than Hollywood would have you believe: now, instead of doing the same mundane things you used to do by yourself everyday, you have a partner doing their own same mundane things with you.

Did you just fart, or is that the dog? Inspired by this Huff Post article, we've decided to add to it with questions and comments like this one, to make an ultimate “married life in a nutshell” collection. Which one sums up marriage best? Make your voice heard. Vote!

It's not funny, and I really hope it's not a common thing. I often get angry with my wife, but I'd never even think of hurting her. This aside, I have to agree with Jordan - this is a nasty double standard. Women are allowed to joke about punching men, but we have to remain perfect gentlemen or risk being called abusive.

Obviously a women's point of view, if a man thought this, he'd be labeled abusive.

Yeah, but you both get kinda tired after living together for a few years. Unless we go to some special event or meeting, we both just basically wear our quick casual clothes when going out.

That's why we color-code stuff in our house. If it's pink or purple, it's definitely not mine. Even though I like purple.

I used to drive my hubs crazy, wanting to pop his occasional black head, but after getting surgery on his testicle through his pelvis he got an oddly healed scar. You can't see it unless you're up close, and so for a few years we'd be fooling around, and start heading south, and come across a huge blackhead, and instead of what he was expecting when I headed down there, I'd start working on the blackhead. I had a compulsion about it, and it always killed the mood. So I'd try to stop, but compulsions aren't easy to break away from. And at some point I started doing it when I wasn't in the mood and he was being annoying, really annoying.. Worked out until he caught on and started removing the blackhead before trying to remove my bra. Now we've agreed I can do whatever I want to his blackhead, as long as I was completely topless the entire time... Goes to show you, compromise is the second most important part of a successful relationship... Lol love being first of course.

I'd have said compromise and loving someone more than you love yourself, or anything else (not counting kids, which are generally products of your love). Hard work is important too. Maybe it's because I have the most fucked up family, so I only had those (largely failed) marriages to learn about how to make it work. One thing I noticed is none of my relatives were ever willing to back down, say they were sorry, or compromise in any fashion. And none of the adults from my childhood are still together. Mom & dad #3, granny & gramps from childhood, or gramps she left him for when I was 10. Neither of my uncles are with the aunts I grew up with.
