Grocery Shopping with a Spouse vs. Solo: A Scientific Test — Shopping

When my now-husband and I moved into our first apartment together two years ago, grocery shopping (like pretty much everything else on our agenda outside the office) was a glorious activity to be shared. Our local Trader Joe’s — a beautiful converted bank in Brooklyn with ceilings far too high and light far too natural for even the hipster-est of markets — was a new frontier to explore together, a place where we would discover whether we preferred bagged salads to making our own, and if we were going to be the kind of people who had fancy cheese on hand “just in case” friends dropped by. After six years together, I still didn’t know what kind of trail mix my partner liked. Clearly, we had a lot of relationship work to do in Trader Joe’s.
