Taking Chances

To keep your marriage brimming with love,

whenever you’re wrong, admit it;

whenever you’re right, shut up.

Honey and I just got back from our very first honeymoon A.C. (after children) in Puerto Rico–sandy beaches, salsa dancing, and casinos that remind us of how lucky we’ve been betting on each other a lifetime ago and luckier still that we have learned to reshuffle our hand to make the most of the cards life dealt us since.

Like this Powerful Goddess, I did wear white. Not so much to conjure the days of innocence, but for the simple reason that white complements a good tan best. ūüėČ

Lucky¬†we did not swear NOT to talk about the kids¬†during our time alone–impossible with Puerto Ricans who are big on family culture. Seeing young¬†couples with toddlers and their oversized strollers did make¬†us sigh with relief that we¬†can travel far lighter lately.

We flew home in time for the second marriage of my husband’s college buddy. Having witnessed the dissolution of his first, we were thrilled to see him taking another chance with a woman who brings out his playful side. We sat among the witnesses, silently thankful that our own marriage has endured, shuddering at the thought of possibly having uttered the word “obey” at my own wedding?!!!

Esther Perel says all of us do marry a second or third time, though some of us do so with the same person in our personal evolutions. Her¬†TED Talk on The Secret to Desire in a Long-term Relationship¬†asks “Can we want what we already have (for toooo long)?” Now there’s a¬†question where “I do” is a most meaningful answer.
