Marriage and Children: A Convenient Excuse for the Abandonment of Reason

The brilliant Dusty Scott of the Salami Tsunami blog asks: why when people get married turn into absolute retards?

I noticed before I got married that most married people exhibited some absurd couple-based behavior. I'd hear people tell me about being up all night chasing a bug that their wife thought they saw in the bathroom, not speaking to one another because they had a fight the day before, not being allowed to hang out with certain friends, and on and on.

Out of pure self-doubt, I chalked it up to my not being married and not knowing or having any desire to know the nuances of such a terrible institution. I have since learned that marriage, in fact, makes 60% of people combine their own insanity with that of their partner. The result is something that is greater than the sum of its parts. So I'm going to espouse my opinion on this stuff, as I am wont to do at (all) times.
