Five reasons to marry your opposite

  1. Having not read any comparable book (or many books at all) since 1991, he will think your work is brilliant.
  2. He will be able to find mistakes on your royalty statements, which is like having the ability to decode hieroglyphics.
  3. If an editor’s response leaves you flattened, he will not discuss the relative truths and merits of said response. He will call the editor bad names until you feel better.
  4. He will provide much better subsidies than the Canada Council.
  5. He will occasionally take your son to McDonalds for breakfast while you’re writing, and then deliver a BLT bagel to your desk. What could be better than that?
