Marital math


After marriage we become two in one
And as it takes two to make a child
Soon love has to be divided between your other half and kids
and as they multiply  
we tend to become a little calculative.
I was never as good at math as at science  
So I quarter the dinner pie  
and let my hubby tutor the kids on the pi  
 
In married life you have to subtract negative numbers
to bring out the positive ones
to round it off as a near success
Even when your partner, is not a common denominator
Adaptation, love , respect plus fidelity is the must equation  
And can solve many marital problems if you do the math.
 
And while the dad or tutor teaches your offshoots about square roots
you can dial the number of your parents, your very roots
As parents we rise from zero to superhero, esp since there's profit and loss in the whole package...
 
Do spend a significant fraction of your time expressing love to your spouse
Even if a new addition to the family can really be equivalent to a lil time thief  
Yet as baby slumbers and the kids ponder upon algebraic expressions  
you can find time to escape into romantic expressions.
You need to look at life from a different angle sometimes  
It can be hard for me since my hubby can be so obtuse at times.
You need to develop an acute awareness of your spouse's changing moods.
This could add up to a sum of marital bliss with you ,the spouse and kids
as equivalent fractions
like the equal sides of an isosceles  
but in a sort of a love triangle.
Don't any of you be mean as the percentages of divorce rise due to mod factors.
Everything you say may count in a relationship  
The simplest math for best results is to give love
to increase the quotient of love in a marriage.
