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!

Peed on the seat at 3 a.m. because she left the seat down. As usual.

At least you aren't the one who has to sit in the pee or fall into a toilet bowl, who wants to have to clean someone else's pee off of them at 3 a.m.? Ick!

actually the correct and sanitary way is both seat and lid down as to prevent bacterias spreading.this way both of men and women are suposed to make this tremendous effort of lifting either the lid either the lid and the seat in the same time. tadaaaa!!!

We solved that problem early on. Toilets have lids. When you're done with something, you put the lid back on (pickles, mayo, oil). Therefore, the toilet lid's default position is down. I live in a house full of men and I win!

Everyone in the house should put both the seat and lid down before flushing - otherwise tiny droplets of pee fly all over your bathroom. Yum.

LauraSchmidt

Lid always down. Then it's always fair and consistent and no fecal matter floating around and landing on your towel and toothbrush!

As easy it is lift it up, it's also to put it down. And I guess there is two different users in the same toilet. Why it should be only male who need to touch to the seat? At least I have learned to put it down, by my self. And after me, he needs to lift it up. Sounds fair for me, isn't it?

then again, we have a big dog in the house and the lid is always down or he will drink from it.

As a man, sitting to pee can be a life changer. Though chances of falling asleep on the toilet increase tenfold.

The first year we were married, my husband was great about putting the seat down, I only had a few impromptu 3am butt baths.. But after a few months we got our first cat, a pregnant stray I insisted on taking in, we caught her drinking out of the toilet. We were worried about what she was going to get to, so the last 15 years my husband not only puts down the seat, he puts the lid down too. Works for me.

Equal rights is for women like no.9 for the guy with the cat. It works only if it suits them. As usual.

Kalikima
Community Member

It's not exactly equal rights we're asking for, it's common courtesy for your partner. If it matters to them, why does it have to be woman vs men? Not every godsdamn thing has to be a big freaking deal! If your only reason for keeping the lid up is because you see it as a men's rights cause, keep viewing your marriage that way, see how long your marriage lasts. You hopefully love your wife? Want her to be happy? Then grow the fuck up! Trust me, she's doing plenty of nastier, harder things to make YOU happy.

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.

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.
