Very enjoyable. I wonder how it would have read with a little narration, however. Might be an interesting comparative exercise to do?
No tags, loved it! I also chuckled throughout. At least this couple will never have a communications problem. :)

I'm really digging your experimental writing. Very different, eminently satisfying.
My only quibble would be that your title was maybe a little weak.

Very realistic, unfortunately!
A classic in marital communications! So true! :-)
