Last night I listened to a radio program. The narratress was reading an article written by “Someone” about what a happy marriage would be like. I almost forgot everything about it except one,which scared, or frightened me: Even in a happy marriage, the thought of divorcing his/her partner may haunt him/her about 200 times, and another 50 times on the verge of throttling him/her to death.
I am really confused and even horrified. What is a happy marriage? Maybe the writer is trying to tell us to be realistic about a happy marriage, instead of being too romantic or idealistic. Lower the expectation, then you will feel frustrated when you encouter some problems. Then you will be coolheaded enough to solve them.
A happy marriage is also an ordinary one.
