Ah, so I was right when henry used to post publically, and I sensed a connection between you two that wasn't hinted at anywhere else (and I remember donating to a fund-raiser or Sophia's back in 2001).

A lot of folks are surprised at how well my relationship with amethest goes, considering everything.

A few other items to add:
- word-play 'fights' are positive. Constructively zing the other person, and carry on the chain when they get you back.
- Accept responsibility when you caused something to go wrong. "My Bad, I'm sorry" goes a very long way (it's also a very good tactic at work, and extremely disarming of irate customers on a support phoneline).

We are married to block some of the family attacks against us otherwise, but we acted practically married (eg a effective and functional couple) for a long time before even moving in together.
