I may be wrong , but from that very quote I gather that:

1) You're young
2) Either don't have a gf or haven't had too many yet..
3) have no idea what a marriage is worth (ie: No its just not worth the risk of getting caught)

(I realize/hope you're joking, I'm joking too)

But guys, we're hijacking the thread here

When you walk through the house, and mutter, cd <Room>, as you pass through each room...

When your wife talks to you using email or IM when you are both home...

When you wish you can take back something you said, or if you could get rid of someone bothering you, you start think ctrl u.
When you walking through a store looking for something you think grep * (fill in what you might be looking for)

...you lose something IRL and start wondering where in the hell the "find" command is

(I've actually thought that)

...you initiate conversations by yelling at the top of your lungs "Who has <insert other person's name>? Tell <insert your name>" and wait for a response.
