One of the things that irritates me is when people do the "ball and chain" jokes. Recently a co-worker told me how excited he was to be going on a mini vacation and that his wife wasn't coming along. He would be away from work and away from his wife.

I can't understand that.

When I first got married I would tell people about my wife, and immediately they would ask how long we had been married. I would tell them the length and they would invariably say "Oh, you're still in the honeymoon stage".

I hope I never leave the honeymoon stage. I hope that I never want to take a vacation without my wife. I hope that I look forward to seeing her face every morning, as much as or more than, I do now.

I love you dear!

    I share your distaste for the "ball and chain" jokes. In the months leading up to the wedding, I had people (mostly men, but some women) ragging me relentlessly with comments like, "Are you sure you want to do this?" and the most common one: "It's not too late until you say 'I do'". At first I would laugh and move on, but after a while it just stopped being even mildly amusing. Now, when people ask me about "married life" and I say how much I enjoy it, they always "Wait, just wait." I feel sorry for people who think that way, but I feel even more sorry for their spouses.
