Re: Marriage- One Word

[this is a joke, of course]
My secondary word is "screw".

When first married all you want to do is screw.

After 5 years you tend to look at each other and say "screw you".

After 10 years you want to just screw the other person over good.

After the divorce you feel like you've been screwed.

Then rinse and repeat...

[this is a joke, of course]

It is an assurance.

Fidelity ... pretty straightforward, not sure it needs explanation, but thanks to them my 401k is doing great

..."Oneness" ...

So many words.. hard to pin one.. "and the 2 shall become one".. the unity, the shared intimacy .. he's my best friend, I am his.. so much makes us "ONE", there is no other relationship that can compare..

Re: Marriage- One Word

Healing.

One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

Useful.

Some things are more easily achieved via marriage.

Love is an ideal thing; marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

CELIBACY IS NOT HEREDITARY.

I'm "in Fidelity" too, and my IRA is doing great. I worked in their retirement division for 6 years.
