Geek Girl - For Better or Worse


Hey Geek Girl, you know your marriage is in trouble when...

0. You look to xkcd for relationship advice;

1. Waiting for a green build sends your heart racing more than seeing your husband;

2. You get more excited in bed at night when you hear emails arrive on your smart phone than when anything else pops up;

3. Comments on your latest blog post elicit more emotion than the man you married;

4. You have defined the majority of your conversation with your spouse as a regular expression punctuated with "uh huh" and "yep, I'm listening";

5. You stop reading his tweet stream and scroll past most of what he says. Before seeing him at home after work, you read the latest tweets so you can fake interest in his day;

6. He gets emoticons more than he get cuddles;

7. You "like" his facebook status without reading what it is and often have to explain that liking a negative one was in fact showing support. Oops;

8. The thought crosses your mind that selling your engagement ring diamond would easily cover a new MacBook Pro, iPad and phone;

9. His handwriting seems to look like line noise.

Nice tips.......but a marriage can last for ever .......another tip ...gift a diamond ring to your partner...." SIDE STONE RING"
It's a ring that is conventionally offered to a woman by a man in return for her word to get married to him. A truthful sign of that swear, the ring itself differ in
masterpiece according to the couple's plan and feel. The center stone is by and large a diamond, but any gem can be used.
