For the mission, it can’t just be any couple— preferably, you’d want two people who have experience living in extreme isolation for long periods of time without killing each other.

After nearly eight decades of marriage, five children, a dozen grandchildren and one great grandchild, he’s suddenly all like “Fuck it, I’ll just die alone”?
