I don’t watch a lot of television (who has the effing time?) but one of my favorite television shows is Medium. I’ll be honest, I haven’t watched it this year b/c well, like I said, time, time, time. I’ll probably get caught up through Netflix next year.
I watch it for a few reasons. 1. The paranormal aspect. 2. Patricia Arquette. I have a major girl crush on her. And that will likely be a blog for another time… like two weeks from now. 3. I love the characterization and I absolutely love the relationship between the married couple on the show (Joe and Allison). If you don’t watch the show, it’s about a woman with psychic abilities who works for the District Attorney (somewhere in Arizona). She’s a wife and mother of three children and even though she’s psychic, they still struggle with bills and real life.
Obviously I’m a fan of romance and everything it entails. Most of the romances I read involve a couple just getting to know one another, or even if they have a past, they’re starting fresh because of some outside force trying to keep them apart. Or, an outside force is determined to kill one of them, thus pushing them together against their will (I read a lot of romantic suspense). Sure, they fight along the way and usually butt heads, but everything about their relationship and even their arguing is new and fresh.
I like that Medium shows a couple that’s been married for at least 16 years (the age of their oldest daughter), fight like cats and dogs sometimes about the same things, but still make up like adults. There’s such a realism to their relationship it’s refreshing.
Can anyone recommend any romances that involve couples who have been married for a handful of years? (Or a good movie involving Patricia Arquette?) ;)
