A history of the wife

Yalom, M. (2002). A history of the wife. Perennial.

I don’t know how to reconcile my dream of being married with the horror story of what it is to be a wife. I think the vision of my vows as the pledge of an intimate witness and equal partner could be part of that. But how do I reconcile the notion of having things be for as long as love lasts and the desire, deep desire, to have a life long companion?
