I love you Adrienne, Happy Adrienne Day!

It’s Adrienne Day!

I just saw some research about age at marriage and its effect on happiness. Much to the disappointment of people who think it’s crazy that kids at BYU get married so young, age at marriage wasn’t a factor in marital happiness.

We are coming up on 24 years of marriage! Since neither of us is in our 50s (though my back is in its 80s), you can guess we are part of the young marriage statistics.

Here’s the crazy thing, In 24 years, we have never had a single fight!

Oh man, I could barely write that… I’m assuming that 99% of you got to that line and got super annoyed and stopped reading. That means it’s just me and you actual “never had a fight” sickos. What is wrong with you people? You baffle me.

I’m really good at fighting. In fact, I got mad this morning because when I told Adrienne that I had a rough time sleeping last night, she said, “I know,” but I knew that she was actually saying was, “I know, because you kept waking me up with your tossing and turning.”Some people, like therapists, might tell you that “mind-reading” is bad for relationships, but that’s only when you are a lousy mind-reader. I am super good at it, and I knew that’s what she actually meant, and that was not a perfectly sympathetic response. It also made me feel slightly guilty, so I was totally right to get mad. I’m super glad I did because you can’t let those sorts of things just slide by or who knows what kind of stuff she would try to get away with next!

Don’t worry; the fights aren’t one way. I bet I only start 85% of them. I don’t get away with it either. I love that Adrienne has plenty of fight in her. She’s the loveliest human I know, but she cares deeply, she’s no one’s pushover, and she’s as tough as could be! I have always secretly wished someone would maybe try and steal her purse, and Adrienne could haul off and punch them. She is supernaturally strong, and being knocked out by a 5’3′ woman would be a pretty great surprise for someone who deserved it.

My 2022 wish for Adrienne is a year with fewer things that require her to be so tough but, I promise you, she is up for the task.

Also, she is hot.

Take a minute out of your busy day and wish Adrienne a happy Adrienne Day!

What is Adrienne Day?

I hate Valentine’s day. It is a cheesy, commercial mess of a holiday. I can’t stand it. Adrienne, on the other hand, I love. So, when we were dating and Valentine’s day was approaching I decided to take control over my own holiday destiny and I invented Adrienne Day. I arbitrarily chose February 9th and we have celebrated it ever since.
