30 years

Marriage is not like the movies in terms of shots of wedded bliss. Let me be clear, it is hard work.

My wife and I are celebrating 30 years of marriage. At dinner last night, we were seated at our table. After a couple of minutes my wife said that she was not comfortable in the chairs were at the table. No problem, we asked to be moved and were promptly.

I mention this because 30 years ago I doubt we would have done that. I doubt I would have done that. My wife nailed it when she said we were taught to be nice.

Being nice and asking for what you want are not mutually exclusive, but it took a long time to realize this. You can be nice and demanding of what you deserve.
