1. “I loved women and I didn’t want to settle down. I resisted dating my wife for two years because I knew she would change my mind. She was brilliant and outgoing and called me on my shit. We became friends and my energy for wanting to see other women petered out. I was happiest when I was with her so I finally asked her out. She said yes and sure enough, a year later my mind had been made up the other way: I couldn’t live with out her and proposed on our anniversary.”

2. “I grew up. I was always saying I would never get married before 40 and how stupid it was when guys ‘threw their lives away’ in my early 20’s. By my late 20’s I kind of saw how life would be better when you had someone else around to enjoy it with. Then I fell in love with someone who didn’t make commitment feel like a chore. We have fun every day together, my life is better than when I was single.”
