Why Be Married? To Be More You

The other day, I was watching a young woman in my neighborhood. She was obviously on inline skates for the first time ever: wobbling badly, wearing a helmet, and displaying that perfect mixture of fear and joy on her face and in the wonderful sounds she was making.

Her mate was running beside her, keeping up, providing a supportive hand on her forearm and calling out plenty of coaching tips. And she was trying something new, learning new skills, feeling safe while taking a risk that would be hard to take without a devoted companion with different talents from her own.

To me, this opportunity to risk a bit more, to explore things we might find exciting, to find out what delights us even if it frightens us, is one of the things that make having a trusting relationship with another human being so wonderful.
