We need a temperature test before marriage

heat

He owns dozens of heavy sweaters and jackets. I have one that hangs in the closet.

He wears jeans, long johns, boots, a sweater, a jacket, a hat, and gloves. I wear jeans, a t-shirt, and runners. We look unbelievably incongruous walking side by side.

He turns the heat up. I turn it down.

He turns on the gas fireplace. I turn it off.

He piles on extra blankets. I drag in the fan and set it up on my side of the bed.

He wants to cuddle. I can’t take the heat.

We knew none of this before we got married. Really, there has to be a better way.

  1. Just the opposite at our house. I am always too cold, he is always too warm. As we have got older it has evened out a bit but I still have two quilts and he has a thin blanket or sheet. PLeased to see someone called Foster has made a business out of this!!
