The Secret to an Unhappy Marriage

Marriage is about more than
love.

It’s about putting aside your differences to search desperately for the TV remote so that you can watch Big Bang Theory for an hour instead of talking to one another it’s about

slipping
off
to
bed
to make sweet, unenthusiastic love until someone yells Bazinga!
and you both laugh, but you’re awake for hours after wondering why, because that show isn’t even funny.

Why is
it
so popular?

How did
it
outlast us?
