The Mathematics Behind Marriage
I should start by saying that I can barely add, so I am really going out on a limb to bring you this information. Even though I am not married yet, I can understand and appreciate that there really is no accepted formula for a happy marriage. I think that if you are going to embark on a relationship that is meant to last the rest of your life, you should open up to the possibility of approaching it from a bunch of different angles.
The formula 4-3-3-2-2, penned by The Generous Husband is allegedly a way to use math to create a happy marriage. The idea behind it is simple. If you want your marriage to last forever (and not end at the hands of an immigrant poolboy or slutty secretary), you need to:
- Kiss 4 times a day
- Cuddle 3 times a day
- Have sex 3 times a week
- Share 2 hobbies
- Have 2 romantic dinners a month
It may seem like math is the opposite of romance, but this formula actually makes sense. A lot of times, the reason marriages go south is because the couple takes each other for granted. Reminding yourself (no matter how you do it) to appreciate your partner is arguably your best chance to keep the other person happy. If you are concentrated on keeping them happy with this equation, and they are doing the same for you, and you trust each other, then maybe a little math is just what your marriage needs.
And when the day comes that I can legally marry a guy, I might just take a math class at the learning annex and employ this tactic myself.[ via ] [ via ]
