Loved this. Snappy, authentic, and beautifully written.
Being with someone over decades is the product of a choice you make each day, not a destiny revealed on day one. To remember this is not to settle for less than you deserve in another person, merely to emphasize the role you must play in a successful relationship yourself. Maybe that’s empowering, as I found your piece.
They say the challenge of marriage is that women believe men will change, and men believe women won’t. The older I get, the more I’m sure that’s just about right.
Thanks for sharing this.
