Maybe we should marry each other every day…
“I do not believe in choosing someday for one person for the rest of my life, but I do believe in choosing every day for that person for the rest of my life.
Often, to be ‘together’ is the beginning of the end of a relationship. What do we mean when we say ‘we are together?’ What qualitative leap have we taken when we speak of ‘our relationship’ or ‘my girlfriend?’ Often, the leap seems not much more than taking the other for granted. Often, it means we consider that part of our life handled, and have turned our gaze elsewhere. When we take that leap, what else have we done but taken the glory of choosing for each other every day out of our relationship? What else have we done but taken the seduction out of our relationship?
When we take that leap, to be together is in many ways the beginning of the end of a relationship.
Maybe we should marry each other every morning…”
