But that’s just a stereotype, and your marriage doesn’t have to be like that at all! I may still be young, and I may only be 1 year and 4 months into my wife-life, but my husband and I haven’t gotten bored or sick of each other in the least, and I think that these actions are part of the reason why. 1.
