it’s a sad thing but I’ve read a few bits on blogs tonight and ended up feeling profoundly jealous of happy, loving couples who may not have a life they want or deserve but have each other and are willing to say so.  My wedding day was such a happy day and I felt so excited about my new life.  Now I feel short changed.  Sleeping on the sofa just now as I can’t bear to hear him snoring, I need my sleep to keep even tempered with him and the temptation to thump him when he wakes me up it just too great.

    but even happy to stand out and say happy aren’t perfect. I’m not perfect wife, and chris not perfect husband. He nearly dies periodically at night for snoring while I am still awake, and during the day for sundry small ‘crimes’. he is still the man I expected him to be, warts and all as it were. we have rougher and smoother patches – often tied to how stressed I am. but yes, he meakes me 90% of the time happy and I wouldn’t swap him – though a bit of remodleing occasionally…

    hmm, that doesn’t sound right now i’ve hit submit! was supposed to be on lines of, If we are one of those, yes we are happy and stronger than a unit, but not necessarily any more ‘perfect’

    Actually it did read right I think Helen and I know what you mean. I’ve never claimed to be rational in my grumpiness about it all and I don’t think for a minute that everyone else but me has this perfect life and perfect partner etc but sometimes it *feels* like everyone but me is blissfully married….. sigh, I know, get a life 😉
