Happiness in marriage! An idiom?

I was going through Sakshi’s blog, which I happened to land upon today and found myself spending more and more time reading her posts…

I really liked something she wrote in one of her post’s “Live-In relationship vs Marriage” and I quote:

The love that we all want from a partner is not possible without both having the commitment to try to make it last. Cooperation, compromise, that sort of thing. There’s a saying, “Happiness in marriage is not so much FINDING the right person as BEING the right person.”

If it’s easy to change one partner for another, where’s the incentive to develop staying power in a relationship? Instead people will think “I’m upset at my partner which means I’m with the wrong person. I’m going to get out so I can hook up with the right person.” It’s human nature, and and i think that this approach is creating increased numbers of people without the ability to sustain a long-term relationship.

It’s definately an eye-opener. So simple and true!

I’m gonna go back to reading some more of her posts :)
