And when she got a little TMI, they didn't mind at all.

Watts shared her feelings and worries about her marriage in a lengthy Facebook post.
via: FacebookThat post was relatable to many, many people. What parents can't relate to pretending to be asleep so the other one will get up for the baby? But none of us really pictured that particular bedtime "action" early on in our relationships.
OK, so most people don't discuss their, uh, personal grooming on Facebook.

She wonders, is the passion gone forever?
