Marriage is like a garden

In many ways, having a successful marriage is much like having a successful garden.

  • It can grow into something beautiful and productive.
  • It takes a lot of work.
  • There are many weeds to pull.
  • You can usually ignore it all week and catch up on Saturday afternoon.
  • You need to pile on lots of fresh bullshit.
  • You're lucky if you end up with a big cucumber.
  • Having a hoe doesn't hurt.
  • Sometimes you need the help of several Mexican laborers.
