Does G know you're doing this?  Qui, does this count towards implosion?

It does count.  Okay Wiliams Sonoma or Sur la Table?  You'll have to choose one.

Williams-Sonoma, please.  Le Creuset, here I come!

Well, if you asked... ;)

Seriously, I think this society sees marriage as a journey, with dating at the beginning and marriage as the destination.  The problem is that destinations are static -- but people and relationships are not.  Put the two together, and you're setting yourself up for a bitter divorce.

Even if you recognize this consciously, it's still very difficult -- if not impossible -- to alter this unconscious perception.  I'd like to think that I can get around this, but I know I'm probably just like everyone else in this society. :-\

could you dumb that down for us?

And to think that I spent all that time editing out the big words like "conceptual metaphor" :D

People think of marriage as something that doesn't change.  However, people change.  If you try to combine the two, you're setting yourself up for failure.
I don't agree.  My parents are celebrating their 47th wedding anniversary next month, and my older brother and his wife have been married 17 years. If you think they haven't adapted over the years you are mistaken. They haven't set themselves up for a bitter divorce. I hope you can get around this. :) Good luck and I hope you find a man to take this journey with.

uh...the fact that there are people in your life who manage to have successful marriages doesn't counter a general societal observation.

If you read the post I quoted, the person said, "People think of marriage as something that doesn't change.  However, people change.  If you try to combine the two, you're setting yourself up for failure." OF COURSE PEOPLE CHANGE....That is what I wasn't agreeing with....
