What drives you nuts in the bathroom you share with your spouse? What problems did you have at first that you've found a clever solution to? Pantyhose in the shower? Wasting water? Not replacing the empty toilet paper roll? Leaving wet towels on the floor? I'm sure there are a million more.
It's a funny thing about bathrooms. We learn about them when we're so young. The words often come with such a strong sense of right and wrong or with shame for failing to understand or follow the rules. They form implicit memories that associate emotions with whatever happens in that room in a way that defies us to revise them with logical arguments.
And not many couples have the luxury of separate bathrooms when they first start out, when they are still assessing each other's values. One room can provide a lot of stress, a lot to disagree about.
So I'm betting you have some great stories of bathroom battles or, perhaps, shocks you've chosen not to make an issue of but still think about.
I hope you'll share them with me, because I'm writing a book: Love Like You Don't Share a Bathroom. And I'd really like to include your story. Thanks!
