I'll never stop being fascinated by the double standard people hold for intoxication. Its a mind altering substance and you can't be held responsible for any decisions you make while doing so, can't consent to anything, etc. Until you hurt someone. Then, not only did you apparently know precisely what you were doing, you deserve extra punishment because you were so incredibly irresponsible. And the drunker you were, i.e. literally more impaired and less likely to know what you're actually doing, the more people condemn you. It's honestly hilarious.

We're awful at explaining to other people why we're happy in our marriage - it always comes off as having 'settled' but that's not it at all. It was more like we met, hung out, got together and then it was as if we'd been together all along, like they'd always been there.
