Okay, someone landed here by searching on the term
marriage "resigned to my fate"
I would just like to say that I am sorry your Google-esque cry for help was answered with a blog post comparing a dishwasher to a dead Osama bin Laden. I'm sure that didn't provide any answers. If you need inspiration on achieving conjugal bliss, though, you can read about how Larry and I manage to choose paint colors, share toothpaste tubes, and divvy up household tools.
Your marriage looks pretty good by comparison, no?
