You probably don’t realize it, but couples have an interesting interaction and conversational quality about them.
Just being a couple means you know each other better than anyone else. You know secrets and share experiences that only the two of you will ever be able to relate to.
Couples have pet names for one another created on some quirky reference only intended for special meaning.
Some couples are so close they their names become intertwined, like Fred and Ginger, Bonnie and Clyde or even Tom and Jerry.
People lose their individuality to become a couple. In the setting of being a couple some seemingly deep-set values and beliefs are altered to compensate the other.
Couples may laugh together or finish each others sentences with familiarity, but certain subjects or topics of conversation that were openly discussed before are foreboded.
Couples who have been together for a long time even mimic each others patterns.

Marriage puts a contract announcing that the two people of legally a couple, but a couple of what’s?
Since there are no classes on marriage the only reference is your own family. What made mom and dad a couple?
Well it’s too late for that. No one said how things might change.
So to all the couples out there, please continue. I’m enjoying the discovery of watching and listening and learning.
