Tolerance, good temper and sympathy — they are what matter really, and if the human race is not to collapse they must come to the front before long.
- E. M. Forster
The closest the Missus and I ever came to breaking up was just before our marriage.We wanted to take dance lessons so our first dance wouldn't be just us shuffling around the floor.Never, ever take dance lessons together if one person (her) was a talented musician and the other was a klutz (me) that couldn't keep the beat if someone was hitting them over the head in time with the music.We survived but it lead to my theory of pre-marital stress testing.A couple should do three things together 1. Take a long trip across country in a small car.2. dance lessons3. a major home improvement projectif the couple can not do two out of the three things successfully, marriage might not last
Bob, interesting comment. #1 was not at all a problem for us. #2 had its moments, both good and bad. We actually don't do it any more, which I suspect says something.#3 was sure a test, when we added on. Won't do that one again.But as you well know, I married a saint.
