We’ll Be Together Forever, by Joseph Allen Hill

Lightspeed Magazine, April 2015; 5,831 words
Rating: 3, Good, ordinary, story  Recommended By:   SFRevu:4

A dysfunctional couple decides to make a love potion to prevent themselves from breaking up.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The dialogue between the two is hilarious. Anthony's rationalizations of his (mis)behavior are likewise fun to read. The ending is awful and yet satisfying at the same time.

Con: It's a simple, straight-through story--nothing below the surface. Also, it's rather hard to see what these two see in each other; they seem very tired of each other. Breaking up shouldn't be so difficult for either of them.
