What The F: Let's Talk About Fibroids!

As soon as I got married, I started to view my responsibilities to my husband a little differently.

Same thing for the perfect image some people create for themselves. If it's not an image you're both portraying then people will see right through it, because one of you are saying how life is wonderful and the other is posting about how life is depressing.
