It's a common tale: you're into the Dead. You're also into your relationship with your significant other, who is very much not into the Dead.

How do you make it work?

I had a similar problem with respect to my father

My dad was a staunch disciplinarian as a father, so I could never quite wrap my head around his Dead fandom.

So last summer I attended Fare Thee Well with him to better understand that side of him. I write about the experience here: https://features.wearemel.com/my-disciplinarian-father-the-deadhead-cc74...

sugar magnolia, blossoms bloomin'

see me and my wife are alike and different. she enjoys alot of dark music and light music, but i am unsure if she enjoys the dead or not. she doesnt say anything bout the music when i play it. i figure its only a matter of time

Looking for love in all the wrong places

My significant other & I are tied together by our work. There is no escape from a loveless marriage, especially w/o the various side projects of the remaining cast of characters to get a breath of relief.

It's forcing me to look for quick escapes from reality with heads whom I can truly enjoy the music with. Hey, when your whole life is going to clubs every night and listening to music it becomes nauseating once you get hooked on jam-band music.
