| | Re: Differences Between Good Friends and Husband and Wife
My husband and I have been together for more than 20 years, since we were 18. I feel as though we have grown into one another, like those trees planted too close together that grow all tangled up. We feel like part if each other. He is necessary to me.
This quote from Emily Bronte makes sense to me.
“My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Healthcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.”
