marriage longevity

More than love. An x-ray of the happy marriage.

A saying talks about one’s life partner as being most appreciated during two life stages: before marriage and after the funeral. Unfortunately, proverbs and sayings hint at a reality which is also faithfully rendered by statistics showing that love wears off pretty soon in many marriages. But maybe this is part of the problem – the fact that we overburden love, treating it like an ingredient with magical powers.
