This "lesson learned" was quite unexpected. I have learned that I really like being a wife. At least, I like being what I have interpreted the role of "wife" to be. I like making lunches for C. I like making dinner (unless it includes touching raw meat). I like keeping a straightened house (I have to say "straightened" because it's not always clean, but it is always straightened). I like keeping track of our finances and planning for our future.
I also enjoy how C has interpreted being a husband. He's helpful around the house (usually after being asked, but that's okay). He does his own laundry without complaint. He's comforting and supportive. And he does all the jobs that I don't want to (bathrooms, trash, touching raw meat).
