What Marriage Is Really Like

If you have read my blog before, you know that I ADORE my wife and I love my marriage. But it’s funny sometimes when I talk to single people and they talk about marriage like it’s some weird, foggy reality that can’t be described. I tell them that the most overlooked part of marriage that will help them picture it is this: a lifelong roomate.

So, in light of that, here’s something funny that happened last night that I thought was a telling moment to help paint the part of marriage that can’t really be described:

I climb into bed around 1:20 am, and Kristi has been asleep for a while. I notice that she is chewing gum in her sleep and I sigh. I turn on the lamp, and she gets those squinty, confused eyes.

I lean over to her and put my hand in front of her mouth. “Kristi…Kristi…give me your gum.”

“What?” she says, still coming to.

“Give me your gum,” I repeat. She’s still trying to figure out if she’s dreaming.

“No,” she says, turning away from me.

“Come on, give me your gum,” I say again. “I don’t want you to choke on it.”

“No,” she says, a little more emphatically this time. “I’m a grown woman. I can chew gum while I sleep if I want to.”

“You’re not supposed to chew gum while you sleep. It’s against the rules.”

“Whatever,” she says, still chomping on her gum, which I’m sure is NASTY by now.

I laugh at her, turn off the lamp, pat her on the leg and scoot close to her to get warm.

That, my friends, is what marriage is really like.
