We have been married five years to this day, and so far I don’t think we are doing too badly at it. When we were thinking about getting married, a friend of Martin’s gave him this scientific piece of advice;

Going out without ones kids is a very strange idea to the culture here, and there were several running around the bar last night, but every so often we reserve the right to act like life-forms from another planet and pay our favourite teenager to babysit.
