So what's the matter with you?! why are you still single? why are you single again? why are you married again? where are the kids? & uh... uh... that's not your wife... There's no exception to the rule: we're all idiots. We've fallen in love; we finally talk the correct name in our sleep; so we get hitched, though this is probably a good time to scream Out of the frying pan & into the fire! Marriage is scary, awe-producing, holy, but mostly scary. Desi Hunt, of Misbehavior of the Would-Be Wife, is a housewife but behaves like a typographical error against the backdrop of all traditions: the almost-always-there-but-not-like-really-there-housewife kind of deal. It's like a curse: no one knows what's wrong with her. Apparently, not everyone can do marriage. Desi is completely unmarriageable at the moment: not cool with God right now, being sort of clinically allergic to relationships & stuff. She's been forced [seriously] to crave chastity as a side effect of banging her head on the wall for some bloody answers to Why Marry? Her married life has been an anecdote of the shaggy dog: long, rambling, irrational behavior, & finally an irrelevant conclusion. So what is up with Desi & marriage? For everyone else who's relatively normal compared to her, before marriage equals going to bed with your wife from day number one, just so that you know: marriage is a way of life. True we're only human, we all make mistakes: we can count them by the number of crushed hearts, cold tears, severed relationships, forgotten prayers... Just maybe, for crying out loud, we're willing to fail that many times to understand, & that's huge.
