Time Article

Waiting in the doctor's office, I read a great article on marriage in Time Magazine. I'm going to link to it below with this caveat: Time has this great article on morality and marriage, and they filled it with links to trash (a video of a gay marriage ceremony, "sex covers", top 10 mistresses...). Actions speak louder than words? Desire for money and click-throughs trumps the message? Who knows.

The other thing to keep in mind is that the author has unfortunately bought into the myth that long-term committed marriages can't also be fun, loving, and sexy. Or romantic. She makes a case for sticking in a marriage even though it can't be fun. I don't think the choice has to be stability and family vs fun and romance. Seriously. You CAN be happy married.

Anyway, the research she cites is good, if you read beyond the one poorly-edited sentence (see other post today).,8599,1908243-2,00.html
