Marital Satisfaction

My wife and I are addicted to The Marriage Ref. I'm not sure why.

Perhaps it's the celebrities that draw us in. Ricky Gervais, Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen Pompeo. Big name stars who are very funny.

Perhaps it's the absurdity of the fights. The stuffed dog the husband refuses to take off the mantle. The wife who spends thousands of dollars on a doll house. The husband who spends way, way, way too much time with his giant pumpkins. They're so unbelievably droll, mundane, trivial, that it contextualizes our every day disagreements and makes them seem much more normal.

Or perhaps it's just that there's nothing else on in the summer that Heather can stand.

Who knows?
