Boy, do I know this situation. Given the potential of a conservative Texan partnering up with a New York Jew in San Francisco, I'm surprised it ISN'T showing on weeknight prime time.
Living in a sitcom does have its moments. But by and large, the husbear and I have settled into the situation best described in this statement from the aforementioned article:
"This is the woman I love; what can I tell you?" Joe says. "We just have to go on realizing that we cancel each other out."
Works for us.
