My mom was married to my dad for almost 30 years… divorce wasn’t her idea, it was my dad’s. Just thought I’d put that out there.
After that my mom began to date. She met her now husband & when I asked her if she was in love with him. She said “he makes me happy”. I said hmmm then why are you marrying him if there isn’t love there. Her response…
I’m doing it different this time. I have found happiness and sooner or later that will evolve into love. A deeper love. A love for the person who has made me happy.
My mom and step dad just celebrated their 5 year anniversary.
So is this the new way to go into a relationship; finding happiness instead of love? Does happiness always turn into love?
Things that make me go hmmm…(arsenio hall tone)
