Marriage Saved by She Shed and Man Cave

She had a little she-shed in the back of the house.
It was a sanctuary, a place she could keep her critters and such.
Her husband stayed inside where he had no one to grouse.
He liked to have his place to himself also, and I mean very much.

They never divorced but were more compatible this way.
He could watch his nineteen tv sets all turned way up loud. 
She loved heading to her studio at the end of her work day.
Their marriage lasted seventy-three years, making them proud.

The secret to their success was that she-shed and his man-cave.
They loved having their own space, so they can do their own thing.
They were both happy, neither one of them a pet or a slave.
She was queen of her she-shed, and he was the man-cave king.
