Recently Lya mentioned talking about my husband to a third party, using him as a grad school enticement even though she doesn't really know him. I responded, "John is fascinating." She wrote back, "It's a rare wife that will say their husband is fascinating."
Can that be true? How can that be true? How can people live together and not be fascinated? I know our engagement more single focused than most but still, that's a sad thought to consider. What would be the point otherwise? Fun? Safe? Is it just a matter of semantics? Might other wives find their husbands funny? Or kind? Or sexy? And are those different categories than fascinating? Not to me they wouldn't be, but I'm trying to understand what this means.
