This led to the following conversation later in the evening:
Beautiful Woman: "Thank you for seeing that the boys had done me in."
Me: "Well, the look of abject despair on your face was a big clue."
Honestly, though, I hear people talk about how they have to work on their marriage, or how marriage takes a lot of effort, and I just... I kind of disagree. Your marriage shouldn't be one of your problems. Your marriage should be where you go to get help when you have problems. (That's true for friendships, too, and if you aren't married then you ought to be able to get help from your friends when you really need it; I don't mean to imply that marriage is the only way to do this.)
