Change and Marriage

Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed.
Albert Einstein

We see so many young couples launching their marriage. I just want to try to get in their heads and see if we can pour out all of their expectations onto the table. We all have this picture of what we think a wife should be, a husband, the marriage. But we seldom are able to accurately articulate it with the one we are about to marry. We think that love will conquer all.

Commitment can conquer all even when love has waned. How many of us are committed to the well-being of our spouse above all else?
