“We didn’t know it meant we couldn’t live together”
People expect to argue in every long-term relationship. The everyday stress of life, money and love bring out the worst in all of us.
After three years of marriage, Hamilton couple, George and Emma Tearston, have had their share of arguments – fighting over bills, sex, kids, and chores. Their bickering took a litigious turn this winter when they agreed to get mutual restraining orders.
Reversing It Could Take up to Five Months to a Year
“Neither of us knew what it really meant. You hear it on the sitcoms and it’s funny, right? Rihanna just got one yesterday, and the idea hit me. But now we can’t live together, and the kids are really confused,” says Emma. “The only silver lining is that Slice has contacted us about doing a reality TV show.”
George’s simple accommodations at the Visitor Inn are adequate, if a little bare. “I feel pretty bummed. I mean, I miss the kids – we’re not sure how to share custody when I’m not allowed within 5 kms of the house. I also enrolled myself in the witness protection program, which can take a while to get used to.”
“I think we’ll come out of this stronger,” says George. “Honestly, our arguments usually last five months anyways. My therapist said all relationships go through a time of silence. Ours will just be more pronounced.”
We can all hope this turns out well. HammerInTheNews plans to keep a close eye on this story. But not too close – I wouldn’t want them to give us a restraining order.
