Sunday Papers: Joseph Cambell

"Marriage is not a love affair.  A love affair has to do with immediate personal satisfaction.  But marriage is an ordeal; it means yielding, time and again.  That's why it's a sacrament:  you give up your personal simplicity to participate in a relationship.  And when you're giving, you're not giving to the other person: you're giving to the relationship."

--An Open Life
