    Just wait. Eventually you’ll end up in separate bedrooms.

    The grind of life and aging.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    When I look at this now, I smile. I was not yet forty, but I could see myself aging. Every wrinkle was worrisome. The tiniest hint of an eye bag sent me looking for creams. We had been married for a few years and I was wearing some pretty tattered nightgowns. I didn’t care much about looking good when I went to bed… as long as the face looked good in the morning.


    Now that I’m 65, I have given up on the face, but I wear pretty nightgowns – I seem to be doing things in reverse!

    re: susan newman

    Yep. People tend to get lazy and then wonder where the fire went.
    .
    Or they let everything else become more important than their relationship, then wonder why they end up in divorce court.

    I used to work with a girl that wore full makeup and sexy nighties to bed every night, and her husband never saw her without her makeup. It was a shock to her when 3 years into her marriage he left for a lady with a more realistic lifestyle. HE is still married and happy, SHE is single, again. Been over 20 years too.

    I suppose that couples learn, and get used to some kind of routine – using the bathroom, whether together, apart, or even separate bathrooms. Same bed, different beds, different rooms, however, and whatever works.
    (I’ve never married, so no; I wouldn’t know.)

    My husband never liked for me to wear long gowns or PJs to bed even when it was cold. I would put on socks and snuggle up under him until I was warm enough. I would wear cute nighties for him. As far as make up goes, he never cared much for it. He said I was pretty enough without. I would put on a little just to satisfy MY ego. Even when he snored and I thought of sleeping in another room, that was a no no. I just put in ear plugs. We had 33 years of love and respect. Wish I could hear him snoring again.

    @James

    65 is middle age only if you live to be 130!!!!! 65 is just about where the little yellow light for the gas gauge should be coming on. I’m 56 and figure mathematically, my life is about 3/4 past. The last quarter will be filled with doctor visits and repeated moving from place to place as my abilities and health worsens. People really should learn to embrace reality- 35 to 45 is true middle age.

    I figure the magic is over the first time the bathroom door is left open on purpose. It’s different for everyone, there is no formula. It is simply a matter of trade out.

    My wife and I have both been married and divorced before meeting. We both know what there is to lose and work at keeping the bond. No, it’s not perfect, but it works for us. Never in the bathroom at the same time but only one bed in the house for us.

    On the other hand, if it took her this long to notice, maybe there’s still hope.
