Ah, marriage. In many ways, it's a true joy: feeling that level of commitment to someone you love, knowing you're building your lives together, that feeling of someone constantly having your back - it all sounds pretty hard to beat.

But, on the other hand, sometimes marriage kind of, well, sucks. Being so close to your spouse means that they have a pretty unique ability to get under your skin. And for those moments, it's nice to feel like you aren't alone in just being over your nuptials.
