I was having a conversation with someone, and we harkened on an interesting line of thought: Is a marriage a good marriage if only one person is happy in the union, and the other just keeps on keeping on?
Which then led to:
What defines a good marriage?
- 2 people blissfully happy
- 2 people content with the way things are
- 1 happy and 1 content
- 1 happy and 1 willing to tow the line because while they might not be happy, they might not be unhappy
- 2 people who know that sometimes they are happy, sometimes they aren’t and realize that a relationship is a cycle and emotions and feelings are going to keep churning around
These are some ideas I have come up with, but what do you think? How does how two people feel affect a relationship?
