Even after a 6 year marriage and a 13 year relationship, which only ended due to my young wife’s untimely death, I like to think I know something about fulfilling partnerships. Your words, however, were so touching and reminded me of how good it can be even in the midst of routine and extraordinary challenges. I have tried to describe the majesty of coupling with the right person in numerous posts on this site; you have succeeded in distilling it down to one piece. Your phenomenal writing encapsulates the experience with so many universal truths. May you be blessed with boundless abundance, love, patience and decades of happiness together.
