But That Spouse Looks So Much Better Than Mine!

We’re all familiar with the idea of the grass being greener on the other side.  Someone else’s life is more fabulous, or more exciting, or just simply more desirable.  This definitely happens to marriages.  When I took to Facebook to do some crowd sourcing about spousal behaviors that are easier to compare, I got quite a response!  It confirmed my suspicion of how normal and easy it is to do.  I myself have experienced seeing Facebook statuses about spouses who have done all the dishes/put all the kids to sleep/ended World Hunger, and have experienced that little ping of “hmpf, must be nice.”
