We have to learn the art of creating happiness. The problem is not one of being right or wrong, but being more or less skillful. Living together is an art. -Thich Nhat Hanh
Ask yourself, would I rather be right, or happy? -Dr. Phil
It seems sometimes that the relationship itself becomes a third entity, there between you; The Marriage. It can be a boundary between you or an element that unites you. Long relationships flow along and change, they have their tidal upheavals, their ebbings and fullnesses. The cycle is quite beautiful; it tempers one. It can feel hard in the day to day. My sweetie and I have a shared belief that carries us through the rough patches - it is the belief that the purpose of marriage is a spiritual one; the purpose of marriage is to learn unconditional love.
What am I learning right now from my most intimate relationship?
