Husband and wives. They are a weird breed of people. I was at one of those work things yesterday evening. Most people attend solo, because non-industry people are not invited. There are some, however, that are married incestuously, so they come bearing a partner.
It seems when one is with a partner at a social do, the whole manner of the people change. They become more confident, quicker to make decisions, and seem to condescend to the “singles.”
I understand. When I am standing there trying to juggle my food and a drink and trying to do small talk on top of it all, I wish for my Hubby. Together we would be better at the juggling and small talk. He would go get me my drink and see that I have everything I need. There would be no need for small talk, I would be able to say deep profound things that have everyone listening. I would look upon the “singles” with slight sorrow for them.
What turns married people into this? I know if you would ask most married people about this, they would deny this even happens. I am a confident, well-adjusted woman with a fairly useful brain in my head, however, it seems to work better when Hubby is with me.
Married people together, seem funnier, happier, more bubbly, and attractive. One without their partner is like a wilting flower next to the pair.
Do people actually get better with marriage?
