Opposites attract, but the faults my wife has that bother me the most are faults I share. And they say that likes repel, which is not why we say “I like you.” Whereas my wife’s understanding of finances and tax forms would be a delight if she didn’t despise me for lacking sense of the matter. She looks at me anymore and I’m not the fellow she met on a bus. Firstly, I’m older than him; secondly, whereas then she was glad I could express myself, now she thinks I talk too much. When we agreed whether for rich or for poor wasn’t the subtext whether for stupidity or for luck?
