Our life together is nothing but cryptic sighs, sullen glares and fights about money. I don’t know how to endure more months of furlough like this
My husband and I are a childless gay couple in our 30s struggling through the Covid-19 pandemic. We have mostly been playing Animal Crossing and enduring frantic bouts of DIY, but something appears to have shifted between us in the past 10 weeks.
Tranquil days of gardening and listening to podcasts have been replaced with long evenings of martyred looks, cryptic sighs and sullen glares. Simple dining suggestions have turned into raging arguments over who pays the grocery bills.
