Deciding to stay married

People who make the decision to stay married….are people for whom the attachment to one another is more important than any disillusionment they encounter. In the pull and tug between self-love and love of the other, they are willing to extend beyond themselves to meet the needs of their partner…often unaware that their turn will also come. And in moving outward they sometimes discover that what started out appeqaring to be self-sacrifice becomes in the end self-enhancement.
