Time changes relationships, it does. In the early courting days with my now-wife, we were besotted with each other. We did everything together and shared our most intimate secrets. But what I valued most was our ability to enjoy comfortable silences. Some people need to fill every second with inane chatter yet we could enjoy long periods of shared, blessed quiet.
As I said, things change, and not always for the better. For example, I haven’t spoken to my wife for over three months. She complains endlessly because apparently now, silences aren't as comfortable as they used to be.
