Let me explain this to you

The husband asked me to marry him after we had been dating for about 6 months. I'm not saying it was unexpected, but there was plenty of alcohol involved.

Anyway, we got engaged, I guess, and stayed that way for about 3.5  more years.  It would have remained one of those indefinite engagements except we kept getting shit from our families [and by that I mean, I kept getting shit - nobody ever gets mad at the husband] [except me].

We finally got married, and having made it last lo, these 16 years, I think EVERYONE should get married and enjoy the wonder that is deciding whose family to visit during what holiday and realizing you are for reals stuck with that person [and his family] FOREVER.

And by everyone, I mean let's stop being assholes with the whole state's rights thing and let gay people marry.


Well, I'll explain how awesome it will be over at my inaugural post over at the fabulous site In the Powder Room.

You know me, I'm ALWAYS talking in the bathroom.

Come visit!


  1. I agree wholeheartedly. Who gives a shit who marries whom? (Or is it whom marries who?)

    Plus, when they get a license to marry, they pay a fee. Revenue, bitches.

  2. Good for you, I agree. Best thing I ever did.

  3. Yeah, marriage is a wonderful thing indeed. My four year anniversary is this weekend.

    So yes, anyone willing to legally tie themselves to someone else's dirty socks 'till death do they part' should be able to.

    Now I need to go do laundry.

  4. Congrats on the new gig! At least this is one agreement you can easily get out of.

  5. I am a huge fan of marriage. I also lucked out big time. Very soon after the hubs and I got married his parents moved to Florida. My man, unfortunately, has to deal with my parents but I only have to deal with his once a year. SCORE!!

  6. BIG SMILES over here.

    In the powder room?

    I am loving seeing your cupcake ass all over bloggytown.

    You have A LOT to offer, Suni...any site that has you is lucky indeed.

    ON my way.

  7. After my husband proposed to me, my parents said something along the lines of this:

    "If you can't make this shit work with Bill, he's in and you're out."

    Yeah. No one gets mad at him ever either. [except me.]

    p.s. Everyone should be lucky enough to marry someone whom their parents love more than them. Everyone.

  8. I agree. Gays should be given the chance to be just as miserable as straight marriage people. (I kid, I kid. About the miserable part. Not the gay part).

  9. I agree that gays should be able to marry and be as miserable as the rest of us! HAHA! Seriously though, I have some gay relatives and it burns me that they don't get the legal protections and rights that married couples do. It just isn't right. Let's get over ourselves already and just do it.

  10. I can't believe we are still having this conversation... can you?

    My marriage was an unmitigated fucking disaster but damn it, it was MY disaster and has so far given me more than a decade of sad sad stories and bitter ex wife status. And everybody deserves that.

  11. I have relatives on their fourth spouses. How could gays do a worse job than my family? If people think gays getting married changes their marriage, they are doing it wrong!


Every time you comment, I get a lady boner.
