The Slice

The first year of marriage

The warm weather reminded me of something.

Long ago and far away, I wrote a feature story about the first year of marriage.

I don't remember every detail, of course. But more than one source in the story cautioned that a common bump in the road involved people getting over the glow of courtship and realizing that something they cheerfully tolerated while dating actually annoyed the hell out of them.

In other words, those in the thrall of new love sometimes do almost anything to please the other person in the relationship. Happily.

"Sure, Sweetie. I'd love to."

But then during that first year of marriage, we come to our senses. We remember our likes and dislikes.

Can you guess what a couple of counselors cited as an example of something newlyweds eventually resisted?

Camping.
