Happy Ever After

'Why shouldn't you hit a man with glasses? A baseball bat is more effective.'

Thank you for subscribing to The Battle of the Sexes Newsletter, in conjunction with my website https://www.the-battle-of-the-sexes.com

We’ve all seen the films. Boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl. They marry and live happy ever after. Well, boys and girls, I don’t wish to disappoint you, but there is no such thing as happy ever after. Every relationship ends in pain and suffering. Not just some of them. All of them. Without exception.

Or the man and woman ride off into the sunset into their wonderful new life. Again, it ain’t so simple. A ride on a horse is a bumpy ride. A relationship is a bumpy ride as well. It all starts off so well. You are “all loved up” and can’t keep your hands off each other.

This is what is known as the “honeymoon period”. You have sex EVERYWHERE. Not just in the bedroom. Everywhere. Especially if you are alone with the love of your life for the first time. Alone in your new home, you do it everywhere. On the stairs. In the kitchen. In the den. In the bathroom. In your car. In front of the television. You ”christen” each and every room in the house. You tear each other’s clothes off the minute you see each other. Isn’t it wonderful? You never knew sex could be so good.

But this honeymoon period soon wears off. After a few weeks, or if you are very lucky after a few months. Life takes over. The stresses of everyday life take over. You have to work, you have to be nice to her parents, you have to resist the temptation to screw her sister, you have to be nice to his children, you have to pretend to listen to her, you have to laugh at his jokes even though you’ve heard them a hundred times before, you have to tell him a hundred times to put out the trash, and he still doesn’t do it. Life doesn’t look so rosy any more.

This is when you have to start WORKING on your relationship. For about fifty per cent of relationships, the result is divorce or separation. Only the strong will survive. Only those who are prepared to work hard will stand a chance. Only those prepared to compromise.

But what do I hear you say? Those fifty per cent do actually live happy ever after, creating a shared life with a deep bond, making the struggle a worthwhile one, enjoying and loving each other till their dying day. Isn’t that great. But then one of you dies, and that inflicts untold suffering on the remaining partner. Truly, there is no such thing as happy ever after.

So why do we bother? Because regardless of how it ends, whether after one date, a week or eighty years, loving another human being is the summit of our existence.

There is nothing else we can do in our life which will equal being in love and knowing that we are loved in return. Learning to love, laugh and cry, and share our life with another human being is what makes our lives worthwhile. If you have found the love of your life, celebrate that fact. If you haven’t, or if you have loved and lost, just try, try again. You are never too old to love someone new. The battle of the sexes may turn nasty at times, but what fun can be had from it as well.

Of course there is another side to love as well, a side which to most people probably isn't "normal". But what is normal for one person isn't necessarily normal for another. Here is a story in point. It amused me, so I hope it will amuse you as well.
