Thunder Storms and Lightning

We awoke very early this morning to the rumbling sounds of thunder and lightening.
 
We could hear the dogs whimpering, so we went and lay with them in their bedroom for a little while, until I realized it was almost time to wake up anyway.
 
So we declared it a sofa duvet day and watched television, napped a little, read blogs and napped some more.
 
I Googled and found this site called Random Facts...
 
Here are some random facts about marriage:
 
 Due to jobs, kids, TV, the Internet, hobbies, and home and family responsibilities, the average married couple spends just four minutes a day alone together.
 
What??? I couldn't imagine ever being that busy!
 
A person’s level of education influences the age at which they marry. Couples tend to marry later in states with higher numbers of college-educated adults, while the opposite is true for states with lower education levels.
 
My fiance and I are both college graduates. We met shortly after I moved home from college.
 
A marriage ceremony typically ends with a kiss because in ancient Rome, a kiss was a legal bond that sealed contracts, and marriage was seen as a contract.


 That's a darling fact.
 
Birth order can influence whether a marriage succeeds or fails. The most successful marriages are those where the oldest sister of brothers marries the youngest brother of sisters. Two firstborns, however, tend to be more aggressive and can create higher levels of tension. The highest divorce rates are when an only child marries another only child.
 
Although he is the youngest of two and I'm the oldest of two.
