When people get married, they never think, looking at their radiant new spouse with the eyes of love, that this same person will one day drive them completely crazy. All the qualities and memories that currently make one swoony over the other will be forgotten in a maelstrom of miscommunication, annoying habits, and other charming things. That day at the altar will seem further away than kindergarten as you wish your partner elsewhere, possibly temporarily, possibly forever. Wedding vows should read “…as long as I can do it. Or until something better comes along,” since that’s what they really mean.
