Ask the Reaper about Life and Marriage

Yesterday, I received the following from a certain Christina:
Greetings, sir.... 
I thought it would be nice to send you a little note, offering you my greetings and good wishes. I run a roleplay tumblr account, where I am Death's Wife (yes, your wife...sorry if this offends you).
I have fascination for you, and what your 'life' is like. I hint at what my life is like, being married to you as my character, but maybe I can hear from the real guy. 

Wife! I don't recall ever getting married. Damn it, Vegas is coming back to haunt me. Anyhow, I am not the least bit offended, and thanks for the good wishes as those are always welcome.

My "life" you say? Well, now that you mention it, I have a little video coming up about it. I work a good deal cleaning up after ghosts, minimizing evidence of the afterlife on earth (not the best at that, I'll admit) and generally keeping living, dead, and undead affairs in order. I have plenty of Death God colleagues such as Ogbunabali, Hades, Osiris, Oya, Iku, Kali, Nergal...etc that work in different parts of the world, but I usually perform tasks in the United States and go on frequent business trips in Europe.

We interrupt this letter for a brief word from our sponsor: try Soma Cola for a sweet taste of hereafter. Soma Cola, nectar of the Gods with a punch.

My office is where I get most of the paperwork done, filing and categorizing souls. There is usually some issue or other happening on earth, so I spend a considerable amount of time sorting out hauntings, graveyard invasions, doomsdays, poltergeists and every once in a while possessions - which, I will add, are often taken care of by priests. Demons are not my specialty. Other than that, my downtime consists of sleeping, food and finding wifi at parties. Tell me, apparent spouse, what is your life like?

Your friendly neighborhood Death God,

The Grim Reaper

P.S: If you would be so kind, dear lady, as to supply me with your tumblr url it would be uber appreciated. I am intensely curious.
