In which i’m in a same sex marriage

 

I grew up on war movies.  My dad was 16 when World War II ended and although he wasn’t old enough to enlist, his brother was in the Navy.  Therefore, we were weaned on war movies.   The Longest Day, Bridge at Remagen, A Bridge Too Far, Bridge over the River Kwai, the Guns of Navarone, Patton; you named it and we watched it.

 

I also saw a lot of James Bond movies so I love a good action movie.  What’s my point?  My point is that I was really, really excited to go see Act of Valor with Kevin because this wasn’t only an action/war movie.  No, it was a war movie made by REAL NAVY SEALS.  The previews looked intense and I was stoked.

 

Now for us, half the excitement of the movies is the previews.  Yeah, we’re those crazy people who love previews because then we get excited about the next movie.  Kevin and I try to go to a movie every week although lately that’s suffered because  very frankly all the movies have been sucking.

 

So, we go to the movie and the previews begin.  First preview is John Cusack in “The Raven.”  This movie, based on the Edgar Allen Poe book “the Raven” looks pretty good.  After the preview we both looked at each other and said “movie” which means we’ll probably go see it in the movies (as compared to on TV when it comes out on demand.)

 

Now, there are some movies we will pay to see at the movies and some movies are “rentals” because they look bad or just good “only for the special effects” or shit like that.  Next preview is “21 Jump Street.”  NO, HELL NO!! Not this goddman preview again.  I have seen this preview 5 times now and each time it looks just a little worse than the time before.  I already don’t get the Channing Tatum thing and I can’t figure out why the hell Jonah Hill followed up Moneyball with this crap.  This one is a “no can do” even on rental.

 

Next up is “GI Joe.”  Now honestly, we saw the first one in theaters.  I KNOW!!! Don’t be a hater.  This one has good action so we turned to each other and said “TV” meaning we’ll watch it at home when it comes out.

 

Lastly, there was a preview that started with the war.  Here’s the conversation:

 

Me:                  Hey that’s Zac Efron

 

Kevin:             Isn’t that the guy from 17 again?

 

Me:                  yeah, that’s what I said.  Zac Efron!

 

So we watch the preview (The Lucky One) and apparently he (Zac Efron’s character) finds a picture during battle, which he stops to pick up which of course saves his life so he decides to go find the girl in the picture.

 

He finds her and “shock of all shock” they fall in love but then she finds out he had the picture and is a stalker and the ex-husband hates them and “oh noes” romantic troubles but then of course it’ll be all right because it’s Zac Efron and it all has to end happily right? RIGHT?

 

So I turn to Kevin and say:

 

Me:                  well that looks kind of schmaltzy

 

Kevin:             That looks really good

 

Me:                  are you serious?

 

Kevin:             he was great in 17 Again

 

Me:                  Kevin, are you a girl?

 

Kevin:             what? It looks like a great rom com

 

Me:                  OMG! You’re a girl

 

Kevin:             what?

 

Me:                  I married a teenage girl

 

Kevin:             Lynn

 

Me:                  I’m in a SAME SEX MARRIAGE

 

Kevin:             hey, that’s not fair.  I just thought it looked cute

 

Me:                  I’m going to blog about this

 

Kevin:             you better not

 

But I did because seriously, when your guy is into chick flicks more than you are then there is something crazy going on.  Especially when the movie you’re there to see is a NAVY SEAL recruiting film called Act of Valor.

 

I’m just saying …

    For me, there’s nothing wrong about same sex marriage because as our life goes through love and how they deal with passion of life is the important things in our society….

    And I thought I was the only one that was married to a man who regularly screams, “You better not blog this”. We are soul sisters.

    I think you’re as excited as he is about action, though, so clearly you’re both in a same sex marriage. My hubs has to screen all chick flicks, because i get all bent out of shape and groan ROmance at the bad ones.

    Ha! Maybe I’m in a same-sex marriage too! My husband uses words like pretty…but unfortunately not when describing ME, when talking about flowers and shit. Too much estrogen that man of mine.

    I always get a secret flush of pride when my girlfriend makes a comic-book or superhero reference.
    It shows my indoctrination techniques are working.

    Maybe your husband needs deprogramming.

    I always say I’m dating a girl ’cause my boyfriend is a little too in to his “nice” sweaters. I’m the only one in to the romantic comedies though. And only when I’m home sick. If I’m not sick I hate them. If I have the sniffles I want to watch every bad romantic comedy there is.

    My husband is just as much into chick flicks as I am. And he’s a savant when it comes to actors’ names and knowing what movies they’re in. It’s crazy. I, on the other hand, am the worst movie watcher ever, because I usually don’t even remember whether I’ve seen the movie or what it was about.

    Also, he’s the first one to hang out with the women at family functions, just to see what the latest gossip is. Yep, attractive, I know. :-) That being said, it’s nice being in a same sex marriage sometimes. :-) At least I don’t have to watch superhero movies *every* time. Just every other time. Lol

    ‘Kevin: I just thought it looked cute.’
    Whenever The Mister says the word “cute” for some reason I cringe and yell out ,”You are such a girl!!” To which he typically responds, “Yup, and you’re still a bitch.” We work so well together.

    Having two teenage girls I save all the sappy chick flicks for watching with them, and when my boyfriend is out of town. We watch everything that he hates. First he wouldn’t have known Zac Efron was in 17 again. He might not have even known about the one from the 80’s either with Dudley Moore and Kirk Cameron. I am pretty sure you are potentially in a bi-sexual relationship. As he is a testosterone based life form you can only surmise that you have both a female and male spouse.

    In terms of same sex marriages, I would have to say the best wedding was one of them – when my boss married her girlfriend of five years – it was one of the most magical events I have ever attended. As for “different” sex marriages.. honestly most of the weddings I have attended have sucked.
