Brokeback Marriage

According to the New York Times, "Many Couples Must Negotiate Terms of 'Brokeback' Marriages." It's true--sometimes you've been with someone for a while, and find out that he is, in fact, a cowboy. The man said he was from the Upper West Side, grew up going to Zabars and attending lectures and concerts at Columbia, but it turns out he grew up on a farm, has ridden a horse in a picturesque setting while not on vacation, and was a "geographic diversity" candidate for college admissions. It's tough for couples going through such a crisis, but over a few beers and a meal of unthinkably long noodles, some such couples have been able to work things out.
