Darby and Joan

I had no idea that the term "Darby and Joan" meant a happily married, placid couple, or even a younger couple who preferred to stay in rather than go out and party.

If Kelly hadn't been named Kelly, Darby was our second choice.

I'd never heard that term before either. You learn something new every day!

Well, that sounds like my marriage. Ha. Good to know we're not alone.

I have heard the term but never knew what it meant.

Picked this up reading Anthony Trollope novels -- he was very fond of this image and used it many times.
