Normally Ever After
I think a good marriage can happen if one finds happiness in the routine and mundane. Think about it: A marriage is supposed to last forever. Or at least until one of the people dies. But not ever minute can be honeymoons in Tahiti or even Disneyland. You gotta make your own fireworks. You gotta be spontaneous. That may mean simply taking a shower together, or saying I love you aross the dinner table... or maybe just a dance in your own bedroom before lights-out. Keeping a marriage is not hard. It just requires a little effort, which I don't think we mortals are comfortable doing. We like to be lazy. We like things to just work out without us even trying. But of course if we all had that attitude, nothing would get done and nothing would have worth.
