Separate Bathrooms is the Key to a Happy Marriage

After living with my husband for a year before we got married I knew that our marriage would last a lifetime provided we had separate bathrooms. I could live with many of his odd habits but when it came to the bathroom it was a deal breaker. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my husband and know that we have been married twenty years BUT if I had to share a bathroom with him we would have been divorced long ago.

I am a tidy, pick up my stuff and never throw anything on the floor type of person. When I leave the bathroom it is put together and ready for guests.

This is why I say that having separate bathroom saved our marriage because if I had to share a bathroom with hubby we would have been divorced twenty years ago.
