August 17, 2023: kindly just posted a shortened version of a piece I wrote in defense of the Steves of the world, and specifically the Steve of And Just Like That… Read it (here) and weep for the diminution of unbridled passion in the long-form marriage, and then get over it by realizing you’ve (probably) got it good.

PS: What’s that, you say? You dimly recall that I already wrote about And Just Like That…? I did, and it was last year, and it was in The Cut, and here it is again.
