An interesting portrayal of a really dysfunctional relationship. Somehow, it hung together and persuaded. me to stick with it and they did finally mature.
Thanks for your hard work writing it.

Wow! This is the best Severus/Hermione fic I've read in ages. I wonder how I didn't come across it sooner. I love the way you have captured the ups and downs of married life so realistically. I could envision myself as the character(Hermione) as it just wasn't rainbows and sunshine. In the middle of the story, I didn't like it that you let Severus be thrown in Azkaban and on top of that, he didn't meet Mione in the family room. And many instances where they kept fighting and making up. But at the end, I realised that in doing so, you have managed to give the characters a depth. They were not just superficial. They lived in your story.
One thing I didn't get was why Mione stopped visiting the Burrow and why there is tension between Molly and her?
But overall, I loved your story.

Sorry, I really tried but I'm out. The arguments never make any sense, you wrote a marital rape scene that the wife thinks was ok but paradoxically blames herself for not being able to 'let go', now you have women being witches (in the pejorative sense) to Hermione and Snape won't tolerate HER complaining about it? To hell with this. If I want to see women being abused- well, no, I don't.
And please don't insult anyone by claiming it wasn't rape - Hermione very clearly did not consent, but he did it anyway. It is a lie to claim men don't know when women don't want to have sex if they don't use the actual word 'stop' because most of human communication is non-verbal and they manage well enough the rest of the time.
Frankly, I don't understand what either of them sees in the other - he's an abusive control freak and she's an idiot. It's certainly not love.

Good story, but around chapter 40 it began to feel like you kept them apart to keep them apart, no rhyme or reason. I actually began to skim chapters because I couldn't take the stupidity of egg they were apart
