When I got to a certain age, I really began to notice some interesting things about my parents' marriage. Particularly, how unbelievably petty and passive aggressive it could be.
Don't get me wrong. My parents have a fantastic marriage and have been together for 30 years now, so clearly whatever they're doing works for them.
But now that I'm older, and just a little bit wiser, I find I'm really starting to catch on to those subtle things my mom and dad do to keep things working smoothly with each other.
