I’d like to share a little excerpt from The Rebel Housewife Rules (the book that you could win!), something I found especially noteworthy, since this was, as a matter of fact, a discussion (er, argument) that LT Fromage and I had early in our marriage…
From the chapter, “Happily Ever After”
The Myth: Combining two separate lives will be a snap
My new husband will be so thoughtful, so in love with me. He
won’t care when I borrow his things, like his razor. I’m always out of blades,
and I love the foaming bubbles his shaving cream makes – oh those gloriously
smooth legs! Sleeping in his dress shirt feels so good; it will keep me close to
him when he’s out of town. Somehow I never have any socks, but not to worry,
I’ll just wear his.
The Reality: His and mine don’t always make ours
After I used his shaving kit, he emerged from the bathroom looking like
a doctor had just removed shrapnel from his face. I felt bad, but I pretended
not to notice.
“Where’s my new dress shirt? I need it for an interview
“Ummm…. Is this the one?” I tried to look especially sexy as I pointed
to what I was wearing to bed.
“Vik, come on! I have no socks, no razors, no shaving cream…. I have to
be manly on a fluffy, pink, flowered couch and now I have nothing to wear to
I still do use LT Fromage’s razor (with permission. He got a new one), but I did stop borrowing his socks.
