Damage control...

Perhaps I need to do a bit of damage control for the frightened singles out there (aka Loesil and Mullet).

Like I mentioned before, first year of marriage is like the first year of varsity:
It's totally new, you're ussually short of cash, you have a room mate, you meet a bunch of new people who are in a similar situation, it's challenging (!), it's late nights filled with new experiences (...), and your clothes probably shrink a bit. First year syndrome and all that.

BUT!!! It is awesome and 100% worth it.

You have romantic candlelit dinners (Meal at Fishmonger: R150, Meal at Moyo: R340, Husband who can cook: Priceless!)

You save hundreds on the electric bill (no need for electric blankets and heaters, and certainly no need for television)

You do your bit for the environment by saving water... (and bubble bath) No sense in bathing alone!

And because this is a family viewing channel I will not expand on the comment about late nights...

Perhaps some of the married ladies out there can help me out here and let us know your best things about marriage.

(I already know what Lee is going to say: accepting a challenge for a game of strip poker AFTER the husband has stripped to his sleep shorts and you have layered yourself in winter warms...I love the way your mind works!)

freaky, freaky...very freaky! Don't think I can handle much more inside detail on late night x-rated marital activities.

Maybe you should follow ur own advice and write about the TriNations... ;)

Trust me, after 10 years of marriage, I can really echo Caz by saying it is awesome and 100% worth it (quote, unquote...). No need to be freaked out ...

And mullet.... there is no way I would add to the great South African depression by mentioning the tri-nations. (except perhaps to say that by the time the match ended the whole crowd in the pub where we watched were cheering the aussies on) It was dismal.
