Marvin and his wife have been married for years. Decades. And when a couple is married for that long, people speculate about what the secret to a succesful marriage is. But sometimes the secret is never what people think.

They both still love each other very much, but the way they express their love for each other has changed.

In the early days of their relationship, they called it their quality time with each other. Now they don't spend that time with each other in the same way.

Now, they each spend their together time blissfully separate from each other.

    What a super drabble, Michael. I was fooled until the last sentence. I was interested in what concept could possibly be revealed... in case I could learn something, but I think I will stick with what I have... that works for me.

    I love the use of the word "blissfully" as its clear to the reader that there is still love but there is understanding too. So important in a marriage. Brilliantly said.
