I was asked yesterday, “What is a good marriage?” A good marriage is one that allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way that they express their love.
Peter Ustinov once said, “Marriage is like a three speed gearbox: affection, friendship and love.” What is he implying here? Simply that it’s not advisable to crash your gears and go through to love straight away. You need to ease your way through. The basis of love is respect, and that needs to be learnt from affection and friendship.
Have a good day.
