"How long have you two been married?"

Now I have to admit the line made me laugh out loud. BUT... I have to wonder. The phrase "You fight like married folk"... Where did it come from? I'm missing it in my marriage. And I'm perfectly okay with that! I married my best friend and I'm a very happy camper. So when did fighting like cats and dogs become the cultural normative perception of us married people?

Man, I have no idea, but lemme know, will you?

We keep getting mistaken for newlyweds because we're still so cute together.

Isn't that such a good feeling? When people say that that you look like newlyweds. I always feel like I'm doing something right when that happens.

when I hear someone say you fight like an old married couple to me it was never the frequency of the fights but the tone of them. Sort of the fight that's not really a fight but it has that feel of being worn in and used a lot, familiar ground.

I've never considered it from that perspective. That it's not the fight the person is actually commenting on but the feeling. Thank you! :)
