Marriage is Compromise

The Husband and I have discovered a major point of contention between us.

Honestly, I can't believe it's taken us this long to figure this out.

I like soft, cottony, pillowy toilet paper. It's so much more comfortable to use than the cheap stuff!

The Husband, on the other hand, likes the thin, cheap stuff. He says it has "better grip" and "leaves less residue."

I didn't want to go any farther, so I didn't ask for more detail!

Suffice it to say, it's been impossible for either of us to compromise on this hot-button marital issue.

As a result, we have agreed to keep two separate rolls of toilet paper in our bathroom - one for him, and one for me.

Our guests are pretty confused. But at least they have options.



This made me laugh so much! I already know my boyfriend and I will need 2 separate tooth pastes when we move in together, because he always squeezes it in the middle and I squeeze it at the end :D

He actually LIKES thin, cheap toilet paper?

I grew up with one-ply. It will never enter my house again.

I actually had a somewhat similar conversation with a (female) friend of mine a couple years ago. She chalked it up as: men have hairy asses and women have smooth asses. There, I said it!!!

I'll let you guess which version I prefer.

Hahahaha, yeah. He likes the cheap stuff! He buys it at the sketchiest stores, too. I like the thick, soft Cottonelle or Charmin. I can't deal with the cheap stuff; I swear, it has splinters in it!
