There are many things you have to talk about before you make the commitment to marriage. Do you have common aims and desires, what are you views on children, what do you want from life are some of the things it’s best to iron out before walking down the isle (or watching a movie in our case).
One thing you don’t talk about but probably should is books. Most importantly how you read a book.
I’ve always been of the opinion that books are to be treasured and when finished there should no evidence that you have even picked the book up, let alone read it. A row of perfect spines on the shelf makes me smile. Now, my beloved is of the opposing camp. Twisted covers, dog ears and raggedy spines are her mark of a book well read. It sends me in to conniptions to see what she does to beautiful books; we almost came to blows over her treatment of Wicked.
For now, while I try to straighten out the pages as I read Wicked we’ve agreed to disagree (and she doesn’t get any of my books!) but what about you? Whose side of the page are you on?
