Can't live with him/ her

VR head and ear set that obliterates/ idealises your spouse

You don't get on well with your spouse, but you've still got the kids to think of. You can't run and you can't hide: but you can paper over him or her with VR. When you don the helmet, maybe he/she vanishes completely, or just gets a face-over, removing that look of revulsion. (See wedding photo) Meanwhile, aurally, you only get the jist of what he/ she says, sieved of the hostile tones/ Perjoratives, a sprinkling of endearments added.

Soon enough, the stress levels fall. you start to think, maybe we can do this? Still live together in 67 square feet? Noticing the welcoming smile, hearing gentle snorts, you crane in for a peck on the cheek. Suddenly you lose your front teeth. (These helmets need grilles maybe) Then you give your spouse a VR helmet as well.

       Innovative, but totally not the solution.
Here's the rule of thumb:
If you can stand the sound of your potential partners' eating, you stand a chance.
  

       After twenty years of the same woman and I living together we suddenly find ourselves looking at spending the winter in our camper until we can find our next place.
I think we'll be fine.
