    Oh, how I cannot wait for that when I get married (no, not to more than one woman, you “experts” of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).

    Seems like it should be a no brainer, doesn’t it?

    This is why you have master bathrooms with double sink vanities and walk in closets! We made sure of those amenities when we bought our house!

    Separate bathrooms is the only way to go.

    For a truly peaceful marriage, separate housing is the only way to go :p

    I haven’t been married long but on the rare occasion my husband and I have to get ready at the same time, we don’t have a problem both being in the bathroom together! I mean, unless one of us is using the toilet but otherwise, why can’t your husband be in there when you’re doing your makeup? Silly.

    Slightly staggered wake up times helps… one can get up & shower…. then the other can… and she can do her makeup while he showers… they seem so immature lately. I know it’s just a comic… but… immature.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    When this strip was first published in 1984 the second panel read, “I can’t – all my stuff is in THAT one!!” The other day I received a call from Sue, my long-suffering editor, who asked me if it was better grammatically to say, “All my stuff is in THIS one” – considering that John was referring to the bathroom directly in front of him and not the one downstairs. I agreed, and we changed the dialogue. I guess this proves that it’s never too late to be caught by an editor!

    My parents had a bathroom where 2 adults could not fit (unless one was on the toilet or in the shower), yet they still managed to get ready for their respective jobs without a fit (John). Elly could get a mirror and do her makeup somewhere else, as a suggestion.

    We’ve always had separate bathrooms. Wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t care how big the bathroom is, it’s never large enough for two when getting ready. And I don’t want to be there when someone else is, uh, using it.

    Let him in to get his stuff, Ellie. It’s not like you’re in the bathtub, and even then you could let him in. Besides, putting on makeup doesn’t require a sink.

    Funny how they couldn’t foresee this coming. Yes John get your stuff and put it in the other bathroom and stop bellyaching.

    that’s funny. It does make more sense to say “this one”.
