Molly Gunn's essay is not uncomfortable at all. but rather realistic. All of us in long term relationships would do well to look in the mirror and be honest with ourselves. People change physically, emotionally, mentally. At 45, I wouldn't necessarily want to live with a middle-aged man of 45 acting like a 23 yo, because physically he's not. So where are the benefits?

As somebody in a long-term marriage, I've had many aha moments reading this, but in the end I'm grateful to Molly, because her story made me realize that I actually do have a good thing going with my man, because I DO enjoy living with him after alllll these years.

I think the joke is on all of us that the Ariana DeBose rap absolutely will not leave our heads despite numerous efforts to remove it. Angela Bassett definitely did the thing, and Viola Davis is honestly my woman king, where is the lie?
