Marrying outside your circle.

One of the more interesting things about Prince Harry’s situation is that he’s quite clearly married outside of his social circle and now views certain things differently than he may have done in the past. I was wondering has this happened to you? Perhaps it’s not has pronounced as Harry & Meghan but maybe you’re a butcher and you married into a family of vegans. Feel free to let me now your situation and how it turned out either via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Thanks.

I’m loving you…

The CEO of McDonald’s, Steve Easterbrook has had to step down after having a consensual relationship with an employee as it goes against company policy. Do you have anything like this at your place of work? I know at my work you have to tell them when you hook up with a colleague, which would put me off. Plus at what stage do you tell them, after a kiss or when you have your first child together? Feel free to let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Cheers

Domestic Man.

The other week, the other-half had a meeting.
I ended up ironing her outfit for said meeting.
I can’t help thinking, is this what I have become, Domestic Man?
In the absence of a recognisable career is this my future?

I’m hoping 2018 will be more productive.

Ps. Domestic Man has no known super powers.


Have a listen to my comedy prongcast. Cheers

Where do you mix your porridge?

When making porridge I like to mix the milk and oats in the bowl as I can control the consistency. My other half persists in mixing it in the pan of milk.

With this in mind, where do you mix your porridge?

Is the traditional affair over?

Hola. Hope you are well.

What has happened to the traditional affair? One that happens organically, maybe with a colleague at work, or a chance encounter with a stranger in a bar.

Not one conducted via a website like Ashley Madison; where as long as you have an email address and a credit card you can order an affair. Plus, the old way, meant that if your partner did find out you could always say, you didn’t mean it to happen. This may be harder to believe when you’ve signed up to a site that specialises in affairs.

Having said that, these days people date online, so why shouldn’t they conduct their affairs this way? In these more technological times it’s conceivable that the whole arc of your relationship could be played out online. You could for example, meet your partner online, meet your affairee (not sure that’s a word) online, sort your divorce online, sell the marital home online, arrange access to the kids online etc… etc…

My Selfless Act

Hola. Hope you are well.

I got the other half an electric toothbrush for Christmas. I knew she wanted one, so got her one.

However, I accidentally let it slip that I bought the toothbrush with my Boots Advantage Points. She wasn’t overly impressed by this revelation and even canvassed opinion. Her mum said it was ‘grounds for divorce’. My first thought was, ‘we’re not even married’, my second was, ‘that’d make a good title for a song’.

In my defence, I’d built those points over the years and was going to buy myself an electric toothbrush but I didn’t want to get one for myself and leave my other half with electric toothbrush envy.

So with this in mind, is it wrong to buy presents with Boots Advantage Points? (loyalty points, vouchers et al..)

Feel free to let me know your thoughts via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

Ps. I’m now having to rebuild my Advantage points and I don’t shop at Boots much, so it’s going to take me a long time before I get my electric toothbrush, but I’m not looking  for sympathy for my selfless act.

Til next time, be nice to each other.

Would you want your partner and ex to be mates?

Hola. Hope you are well.

In Coronation Street, Sally‘s ex Kevin and her current fella Tim have been getting on really well, partly due to some sofa action (that’s one for the viewers of Corrie). Over Christmas they compared their friendship with that  of brothers.

In a civil world you’d probably want to your partner and your ex to get along with each other, especially if you have children with your ex, but would you want them to be best mates? Do you want 2 people who know you intimately to be talking about you and comparing notes?

I’m not comfortable when friends from different groups meet, nevermind 2 people who’ve seen me without clothes pallying up.

Feel free to let me know if you’ve been in the situation Sally finds herself in and how did you deal with it? Did you try to put an end to their friendship and what issues did it bring up?

Til next time, stay safe.

Opening a can of beans

Hola. Hope you are well.

I was interested to see that Chris Martin (Coldplay) is back eating meat after splitting from his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow a strict vegetarian. The implication being that his decision to not eat meat during his marriage was a decision influenced by his wife. With this in mind, what would be the first thing you’d give up/take up, if you were to split with your current partner? Let me know via the comments button, or on twitter @anunknowncomic

In other showbiz wedding news, Cheryl Cole recently got married to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini. Apparently her husband spent £300 000 on the engagement and wedding ring. I’m sure no one reading this has that kind of money to spend on a wedding ring but I am interested to know how much you’ve spent on a wedding ring. Maybe you’ve been married a few times and so collectively you’ve spent a fair whack on wedding rings . Alternatively, I’d like to hear from people who’ve spent very little on a wedding, the cheaper the better and how was it received?

And finally…. in matters closer to home, my other half, unbeknown to me decided to take our only tin opener to work, meaning I had to improvise when for lunch I needed to open a tin of beans. For those interested, I used a hammer and a knife and made holes all round the can until I was able to remove the lid. Let me know when you’ve used an item for something other than what it was designed for.

Til next time, stay safe!

Is it ever too late to call off your wedding?

Hola. Hope you are well.

Is it ever too late to call off your wedding? I bring this up because Rory McIlroy (golfer) recently called off his wedding to Caroline Wozniacki (tennis player) after the wedding invites had been sent out.

In his defence the wedding was still 6 months away, which strikes me as a decent amount of time to call off a wedding but what if you get cold feet a week before, a day before, the day of the wedding? Would you call it off or go through with it, let me know if you’ve been in this situation or know someone who’s done it. You can contact me via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic

Ps. Has anyone been ditched at the altar or does this only happen on soaps?

As a postscript to this story, in their next tournament after the split, he went on to win his, she got knocked out in the 1st round of the French Open.

Til next time, stay safe!


How to Dump Your Girlfriend

It could be you

Hola. Hope you are well.

Over the last couple of weeks there’s been newspaper stories of two couples who have split up after massive lottery wins (Adrian and Gillian Bayford £148m and Dave and Angela Dawes £101m).

The other day I was thinking about this and because ‘Her With One Part-time Job’ was the only other person in the room, I asked her, ‘How much money she would be prepared to win but as a result it would mean we split up’. Apparently this isn’t an appropriate question to ask a long-term partner, but don’t let me put you off, try it with your other-half.

Let me know how you get on, you can contact me via the comments button.

Til next time, stay safe!
