I've always heard that the more you have in common with your significant other, the more likely you are to stay together. You've all heard the sayings...
'The couple who plays together, stays together.'
'The couple who snorts crack together, stays together.' Or...whatever the saying is.
You know the sayings...we've all heard them.
And the one I am addressing today?
'The couple who exercises together, stays together.'
I was driving down the road and I saw a cute couple, in their golden years, walking in the morning sun. And I thought, I guess it's true what they say. The couple who exercises together, stays together. And then I saw that they stopped and since my windows were rolled down I also heard them yelling at one another. I could only catch yelling and then I heard the husband say, "FINE, see you at home!" He then crossed the street and proceeded with his morning walk. She stayed on the opposite side of the street from him.... and they continued to walk at about the same pace and heading in the same direction...but on different sides of the road.
And I can't help but think that this fight wouldn't have happened if they had just stayed at home in the first place.
Moral of the story: stay home, don't exercise.
"The couple who has outside interests and hobbies stay together instead of yelling at one another on a morning run."
Learn from this couple in their golden years...quit exercising now. It could save your marriage.
