We’ve been watching that show The Fosters, which is mainly about this lesbian couple and all these kids they foster/adopt. Like they’re collecting children. Not for a sweatshop or some sort of children menagerie, just because they like having lots of kids, no time for each other, drama,and very little money. I assume that’s what most people who have kids like.
Anyways, they said something about how they have so little time to “be intimate” aka prime time non cable speak for sex or bdsm or whatever they’re into. Their excuse is that between kids, work, and paying bills they just don’t have time or energy.
If that is what keeps the sexytime going and a happy relationship, then I guess we win. I explained to Dianne that of course we’re happy by that standard! We don’t have human children, only one of us works, and we can’t pay our bills, we must have the key to perfect happiness. Or something. I think its more of a key to sleeping in and hanging at home all weekend watching horror movies and playing video games.
Either way, we are probably way too happy with each other than fits a typical long term relationship stereotype. Damn.
