Significant other likes country music: now what?

Serena Erickson, Staff Writer

Welp it looks like the love of your life has decided that they don’t care about their relationship with their significant other and has fully accepted and committed themself to the music genre known as country music. With lyrics attempting to impress you like, “Before I knew it, I was holdin’ all the doors, holdin’ your hand, getting off of work just as fast as I can,” from the song “Before I knew it” by Mason Ramsey, also known as the Walmart yodeling kid. Now what exactly should you do to solve this problem? Well first, officials request that you seek couple counseling. However, in more severe cases, seek medical help if it’s urgent. Especially if your companion is showing symptoms of being a diehard country fan, knowing all the lyrics to songs by Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton.

Other options you may consider are even looking at medication to take to ease the brain which will eventually get rid of the country obsession. According to HelpGuide, “Drugs such as Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin (clonazepam), Valium (diazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam) work quickly, typically bringing relief within 30 minutes to an hour.” However, I would strongly advise others to not give their significant other a single heartbeat of a thought and leave them as quickly as you can. Or, simply look at them in the eyes and ask them why they chose violence. Yes, they may make “country sounds,” but use that to your advantage! 

It’s always possible for your significant other to turn their life around in less severe situations such as listening to artists such as old Taylor Swift albums, Carrie Underwood and Dwight Yoakam. Remember, people are susceptible when the person is sleeping, so you can even talk them out of liking country through their sleep which is highly recommended by doctors at Henry Mayo.
