For the past 4 years of our marriage my husband and I haven’t been watching football.
And not because we don’t enjoy the sport. We both grew up with it and are actually huge fans of our respective teams. But when we first got married, in an effort to save money, we didn’t get cable. And my husband’s job required him to work a lot of weekends, so he was hardly ever off to watch the games anyway.
Every year as football season began my husband would say “this year is the year we’re getting cable so that I can watch football!”
And yet, every year, we elected to save money instead because he was hardly ever off to watch the games anyways.
