I saw one couple both wearing grey sweat pants, and white t-shirts. They both had athletic shoes on. They both looked very sloppy, had their noses pierced, their eyebrows pierced. I think they were in their mid-twenties.
Another couple was probably in their 40's. They both had the same same Nascar jacket. Both actually were wearing the same polo red polo shirts. They had a weathered look about them, like they've spent most of their life in a bowling alley.
Another couple, were both wearing Detroit Red Wings hockey jerseys.
Some of you are going to say how cute. Some of you are going to say that I pay too much attention to clothes. Some of you will say it's a coincidence. You may be right on all accounts to a degree. I just know there are many couples, that become one. They are no longer two people. They are no longer John and Jane...they are JohnJane. Everyone refers to them in lockstep. They do everything together. They lose their identity. They even share the same Facebook profile; and the same email address.
This is not a criticism (well the bowling part is); it's an observation. These are the people that do the couple-mumble. You know when they talk to each other every where quietly in some strange mumbling rambling that only they know what they are talking about.
Not all couples are like this of course, that's why these stick out to me. What makes the people function like that? What makes them cross the line of being an individual to being part of a joined at the hip couple? I wonder if they even know they do this. I wonder if these are the type of couples that don't get divorced? Are JohnJane happy?
