The Reluctant Housewife or Dorothy Parker Ate My Puppy

Marriage Problems

How do you know when a marriage is over? Is it when you stop sleeping with each other, or when you can't be bothered to talk?

We live a life of curious, dull domesticity & I don't feel noticed any more. Had an argument last night which centred around the fact that we are more flatmates than husband & wife. I don't know how to fix it, and I'm not sure that I want to. I've begun the 'what's wrong' conversation maybe six times this year. There's only so times I can say it.
