Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?

Did you go to the same school?
Are you from the same home town?
Mario was raised in Los Angeles and I was raised in Northern California around San Fransisco

Mario definitely is. I'm a dingbat. The man has a memory like a steel trap. He'll see a movie once and quote 10 minute sections from it the next day.

Both of us
