“It was only in the 19th century that utopia was imagined to be possible in the here and now. Since that time, the search for perfection has been a perpetual source of frustration and disappointment of the kind that affects all dimensions of family life, but particularly marriage.
It is precisely this purity that makes marriage so vulnerable to disappointment and renunciation. Promoted to a level once reserved for sacred callings, marriage raises expectations it cannot fulfill.
The construction of homes and families we live by places a tremendous burden on the families we live with.”
A good read from school. =)
