After you have been together a while, you just kind of deal with the everyday nastiness that comes with being human. You love each other and you see beyond it. Period. The end.
So what are some gross things we do for love?
1. Rub Feet:
This one goes both ways, but yeah. Feet are gross. And still we rub them.
2. Clean Up Vomit:
If your spouse is sick, who is gonna do it? You, obviously. Kid vomit is one thing. Adult vomit is a WHOLE other ballgame. Still, you would never make your poor sick husband scrub up the remnants of his puke-fest from the toilet rim. That’s your job. Even as you gag.
3. Let Him Pee (or worse) While You Shower:
After being with someone for so long, it’s going to happen. Especially if there’s one bathroom. It’s a naturally bodily function, and you have many, many years to get used to it.
4. Pick his Teeth:
Ever had your husband look at you and ask if something is stuck in his teeth? Ever had him ask you to dig it out? No? Then you are in the minority. Dozens of women and men I asked have done this nasty task and they have done so happily. If it helps him not look like a freak (which reflects badly back on you), then it’s worth it.
5. Pop a Zit:
Personally, I have never done this, but plenty of women and men say they have and it’s no biggie. So whatever. I get it. It’s cool. It’s love. And who can argue with that?
