Re: Marriage thermometer
I don't think there is necessarily a correlation. Sometimes, those with serious problems (past or present) have far more insight into issues and can provide better advice than those who have not had to face such issues.
On a more humorous note, a penis is an ideal marriage thermometer. If it goes in hard and comes out soft, all is well. If it doesn't go in, there are problems. Testing at least weekly is advised, more frequently for hypochondriacs.
Love is an ideal thing; marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
