Marriage can no longer be regarded as a constant steady state, without variables or changes, which we automatically fall into once we've said our vows. It's a relationship that's continually being renegotiated—even if we aren't conscious of the fact. It's far better that we negotiate with each other with honesty, sensitivity, and eyes fully open to what we're doing than simply engage in magical thinking that it'll all work out if we just keep pressing blindly forward, wishing for happily ever after.
