His and Hers XXII  

His and Hers is a weekly discussion of a question or topic relating to marriage. On Friday, my wife and I each write our thoughts on the week's topic. I invite other bloggers to do the same with their spouses as an exercise in celebrating marriage. This week's question is:

Make up a word that describes a phenomenon experienced in marriage.

Mrs. Happy's response

yesterever /YES tuh rev er/ n a state in which spouses feel that they have known each other for a lifetime, while simultaneously feeling as though they have just met

Curt's response

arachnaline /uh RAK nuh lin/ n a surge of boldness, bravery, and protectiveness a man experiences when his wife is scared by something that would usually freak him out, such as a big hairy spider
