What makes us happy?
- Focusing on what we can control (which is only ourselves)
- Committing (ourselves) to our partner — love them healthily and hard, every day.
The only thing we control is us. And “marriage” is about commitment, but it starts and ends with our own. And after that, we only need to respect our partners as their own person, separate from us, who commit to us not by contract, but choice.
