I'm currently reading Gogglesbox's Giles and Mary's diary. They are an apparently unlikely couple but have been married for 30+ years. Mary puts forward an interesting theory: people living in the 70s had to just watch whatever was on TV. No alternative channels. They put up with the boring or irritating bits because better things would come on. Nowadays we can flit between channels and networks, pause, fast forward, eject. So many choices. Is it, therefore, that modern viewers are too impatient to stick with the boring or irritating bits in marriage and seek an instant improvement of their own choice?
Slightly far fetched but I could see what she meant.
The diary they wrote is very entertaining. There's more to Giles than there might seem!
