Book Club

We are in chapters 9 - 12 this week on "The Antelope in the Living Room".

In these chapters, Melanie discusses when illnesses come and how we respond to each other.  Then she discusses food and weight gain in the marriage. (Oh I can relate).  And then the hilarious story of Perry on meds doing a reading at a wedding.

7. Do you remember things you found out about your spouse after you got married that you didn’t necessarily know beforehand?
We dated for a while so I don't remember being surprised by much of anything.

And it's best I don't over share too much on our marriage on here or he might divorce me.  :-) 
8. What was the first fight of your newlywed days?
I don't remember specific fights - more of disagreements.  Like when we went on our honeymoon and suddenly we shared our money and he liked to eat $50 breakfast buffets and I was happy with a $1 bagel.  Our travel styles were different and I had to get used to it.  We learned to compromise.  

9. In Chapter 7, Melanie discusses finances. Do you have a budget you stick to every month?
We follow a loose budget.  We are more like Melanie and Perry in the book.
