“Jerry, just remember. It’s not a lie, if you believe it.” (George Costanza)
When I moved in with my now wife and subsequently got married, many of our friends and family were of the view that we’d done things the “right way”. Then, we had a child together; again checking the box when it came to traditional societal expectations.
