"Almost everyone I knew had a problem with it. Some had problems getting into it, some had problems getting out. My generation seemed to struggle with the commitment, as if it were an alligator from some murky swamp. I had gotten used to attending weddings, congratulating the couple, and feeling only mild surprise when I saw the groom a few years later sitting in a restaurant with a younger woman whom he introduced as a friend. 'You know, I'm seperated from so-and-so...' he would say."
There are a few rules to be true about love and marriage:
- If you don't respect the other person, you are going to have a lot of trouble.
- If you don't know how to compromise, you are going to have a lot of trouble.
- If you can't talk openly about what goes on between you, you are going to have a lot trouble.
- If you don't have a common set of values, you are going to have a lot of trouble.
