Is married life really as bad as it sounds?
I don’t think ‘bad’ is the right word. What happens is, obviously, people change. As in my case, over the past 13 years, we’ve lived in four different places, jobs have changed, children, etc. We’re not the same two people in the same situation we were 13 years ago, obviously. Marriage is a lot of work, compromising on both sides. It just reaches a point where either one side or both just says, that’s it, I don’t want to be in this anymore.
