And by "Us" I mean hubby and me, not Us Weekly.
We've been married for 23 years. People always want to know the secret to a long marriage. I say, "You have to be married to me." Actually, there is no secret. Just like there is no secret to weight loss. To stay married, you have to do the marital equivalent of diet and exercise. I wish there was a relationship corollary to the lap band or Jenny Craig but there isn't. Besides, just like those quick weight loss schemes you would only wind up gaining all the unhappiness back and then some.
If you wonder what we're like at home, you can get a pretty good idea by listening to this interview we did the other day with our local NPR affiliate. I'm told it's "compelling, funny and informative." Of course, my friends drink.
