My wife and I celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary last weekend. The dinner conversation went something like this:
"You know, this past year you've changed genders, we've transitioned from a monogamous to polyamorous lifestyle, we don't have sex with each other anymore, and we've both dated other people. But nothing's really changed."
"Nothing that matters."
"Nope! We're still each other's loving, cuddly, safe foundation in life."
"I know so many people who are still looking for what we have. The partnership, the forever-love. My friends who know how we are together, how we're a team, admire our relationship."
"Cheers! To 8 years of marital bliss and 13 years of having each other's backs."
