I'm sure there's an element of truth to that. Despite the skyrocketing divorce rate, everyone goes into it expecting their own marriage to be "different." The problem is when people think that marriage will be a solution to anything, with the exception of not having your own health insurance...
Gralson: my husband (works out of town).
Auto: my girlfriend (lives with her husband Zoffee).

The most dangerous phrase in the English language is "we've always done it this way."
