If you're a single gal watching the lives of couples from afar, it would be easy to assume they exist together in a loved-up paradise and never worry that they might die alone and have a neighbour's cat eat their face.
Except, it now appears that couples have been keeping some of their more questionable habits under wraps. Perhaps fearing that single folk will finally see through all their "I love doing life with you" Instagram garbage and cotton on to the fact that, yes, being married means you're not in danger of dying alone.
But there will come a time where you'll certainly want to.
The latest couple to pull back the curtain are Grammy Award-winning musician Meghan Trainor, the woman responsible for a number of bops including All About That Bass, and her husband Daryl Sabara, best known as the little boy with the curly red hair who starred in the critically acclaimed Spy Kids franchise.
Now, Meghan and Daryl have always been one of those celebrity couples who share even the most intimate parts of their love story. The kind of couple who make you wonder if all those rom-com tropes that were stuffed down our throats in the early 2000s are actually an attainable goal.
The couple were set up on their first date by fellow actress Chloe Grace Moretz, and said 'I love you' for the first time after knowing each other for only six days. After Meghan went through severe vocal cord surgery and could not speak for an extended period, Daryl learned sign language so the couple could use it together and still communicate with each other. Cute.
However, this next part of the story is where this so-called rom-com takes an unfortunate turn.
Listen to Laura Brodnik and Kee Reece discuss Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara’s unique bathroom habits on this episode of The Spill.
This week Meghan and her brother, Ryan Trainor, appeared on comedian Nicole Byer's podcast Why Won't You Date Me and there's a moment where Ryan, who apparently has had the knowledge of his sister's bathroom habits eating away at his soul for far too long, prompted her to share what really goes on in her marriage.
"We just got a new house, and we did construction," Meghan begins cheerfully, clearly not aware of the vocal violence she's about to inflict on the ears of listeners everywhere. "Nobody knows this, but in our bathroom there was one toilet. And a lot of times in the middle of the night when we're with the baby, we gotta pee at the same time. So I was like, 'can we please have two toilets next to each other?'"
Meghan went on to explain that she couldn't be expected to live in a house with one toilet per bathroom, even though that's the way the Lord and floor plans intended it.
