Over the years Shane and I have gotten a lot of flak regarding our "closed door" policy. And I'm referring to the bathroom door. Close friends and family have said that it's not natural that we keep those things private. 100% of the time. I'm serious. Always.
But, I would like to quote the recent Real Simple article: 10 Ways to Make Your Marriage Divorceproof:
9. Let your spouse in on 90 percent of your day-to-day routine. Save the other 10 percent for your bathroom time. Sam, for example, will never allow Jason to see her lurching to put on a pair of panty hose, and he never wishes for her to see him struggling to shave the back of his neck. It’s those small things that keep the mystery alive.
So if you have an open door policy in your marriage, that's fine. Really, I'm not judging. Just lay off the fact that we don't. (You know who you are.) And come on. Secretly, don't you wish that was still all private. There's a reason no one does that stuff before marriage.
Was this post too much of an overshare? I really can't be blamed. I am slightly high on cough syrup.
