Maybe it is because I am more sensitive to the subject right now, but in the last two weeks I am astounded by the number of times I hear co-workers complain about their significant others. More specifically, when I mentioned how Tank was going to be out of town for an extended period of time many of them spoke some variation on "going to enjoy the freedom, eh?".
To be clear, I am not about to say that a couple needs to spend every single moment possible with each other. But, at the same time, if you are feeling nothing but relief when they are not around there might just be some serious issues at play. Ditto if 9 out 10 times when you speak about them the first item mentioned is a complaint.
It is not my place to dictate terms for another person's relationship but I hear this all around me and every ounce of me wants to go up to them and say, "Why the hell are you in this relationship?!?"
