So that's why . . .

. . . Mrs. Monk and I have such a happy marriage. For those not in the know, we're celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary today, and thanks to Jena Pincott's Do Gentlemen Really Prefer Blondes? (a fascinating read on "the science behind sex, love, and attraction") I now understand the reason for our marital bliss. In "a study on marital happiness . . . psychologists at UCLA found that . . . [t]he best predictor of a good marriage . . . is when the wife is much hotter than her husband. Presumably, the husband works harder in the relationship and is less likely to cheat, and the wife feels more secure" (Pincott 236).

As you can see for yourself, this would explain why the beautiful Mrs. Monk . . .












is happily married to me:

HAH! I love it!

Hope you have a great anniversary. I can't believe it has already been 6 years for you two! I remember your reception at the 135 park like it was yesterday:)
