LIVING THE FAIRY-TALE ROMANCE
I once heard a woman say that she thought marriage would be like having a life-long date. At first, I laughed and muttered that she must have lost her mind. But then I settled down and really thought about what she'd said. And for the first time, I realized that I, too, had once thought the very same thing.
Of course, this gave me pause for thought. I began to wonder if we were the only two people on the planet who had ever employed this line of thinking. But after talking to lots of other people in committed relationships, I was amazed at the findings. Nearly every one of them – at one point or another in their relationships - had shared the same thought as well. And most were extremely disappointed to discover that such was not the case.
