In October, my wife Krishna and I will have been married 38 years. It was a long road. Now that the likelihood of reconciliation on the pillow and of compensatory grudge mating is floating away in the distance, it’s especially important to renegotiate our live-together contract frequently. Here is a new version, fresh from today.
She may abuse me as often as she wants and under any circumstances, and in as loud a voice as she wishes.
She does all the drudge work in the house and she feeds me well and often.
I try to manage our finances.
I may never criticize her or anything she does under any circumstances.
My wife claims that we are just putting black on white the rules of the normal, conventional, traditional marriage.
