They were all quite amazed as they had never known any man who had been married that long who said he enjoyed it. Apparently they all make 'ball and chain' type jokes.

I don't think the ball and chain jokes necessarily mean the man was unhappy. It's a way of saying "Oh, if only I hadn't been married, I could have spent my life being fawned over by Swedish supermodels. Because I'm that kind of stud, you know?"
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

I swear I just had this conversation at work five minutes ago:

Me, to coworker who was changing out of this boots: (He's a friend, so I was teasing him): Hey, your socks don't match!

Him: Yes, they do! They're exactly the same, they're just different colors!

Me:  ???

Him: And they come in pair of three!

How old is your co worker?  I though this was only a trend for little girls. They are sold in sets of three with coordinating, but not matching colors and patterns. Look up the store "little Miss Matched" (spelling unknown)

Stance has several items like that; three socks in a pack, none the same.

Urban Outfitters has socks like that too, made by Vans. Coordinating but not the same

hipsters...I'm sure his socks are ironic

Call me unhip, but why must we further complicate our lives with odd numbers of socks? Back in my day when we walked to school 12 miles in the snow uphill both ways, we wore our socks in matching pairs and we liked it that way! <curmudgeonly grumbling>

Call my hip, but why must we further complicate our lives worrying about whether our sock match? Back in my day we didn't care as long as they were clean and didn't have holes!*

Yes, if they're clean and keep your feet warm, that's what matters!

Now I know why I was saving my orphaned socks!  I thought I would use them to polish shoes or saddles, but now I know I can still wear them ... with each other. >:D

Even they say "Three socks sold as one pair" I don't think they know what "pair" means!

Not only did we buy our socks in matching pairs, we also bought two packages of six pairs (white because white goes with 'everything') so that as they began to wear out, we could just match the remaining sock with one of the many. many others!!  They seemed to never go away!!   :-\
