I have a friend who's been with her boyfriend for 9 years. They have 3 kids together and are NOT married, although they've been "engaged" as long as I've known them.
One day, I asked why they don't just get married already. This is what she told me "It's because of the pennies in the jar."
"WTH are you talking about", I said. Then, she explained her theory. She said "I heard this theory that if you put a penny in a jar for every time you have sex while you're single, you'll fill up the jar in no time. But, if you do the same thing for every time you have sex while you're married, you'll NEVER have enough pennies to fill up the jar, no matter how long you're married. So, we don't want to get married because our sex life will end....it's like the pennies in a jar."
I was shocked. I'd never heard that theory before, nor do I agree with it. What are your thoughts?
