Good thoughts/questions -- and clearly North Americans struggle with all of that and more --- given the 50-60% divorce rate. The trend for our younger generation is to live together versus marriage.

I marvel at couples who celebrate 50, 60, 65 years of marriage together....I wonder to myself: How is that humanly possible? I don't believe that humans are meant to be monogomous but I do believe that commitment and effort keep two people together. I also believe that there are many partners for each of us --- there's no such thing as "soul mate". Different experiences and different people help us to grow and morph throughout our lives. What may have made us happy in our 20's is likely not to make us happy in our 50's and so on. Anyway, these are some of my musings on this topic. Look forward to thoughts of others. /Lu
