"How's married life?"
It's kind of like asking, "How are you?" But somehow when that little word—"married"—creeps into the question, every response seems like it needs extra vetting. If you say "fine," does that mean boring? If you jokingly complain, how do you counteract the furrowed brows and sudden concern for the state of your marriage? If you wax on about how blissful you are, do you have a paper bag on hand for when people start gagging? Maybe the better question is simply, "What's new?"
