About Marriage

  "I've learned this much about marriage," he said now. "You get tested. You find out who you are, who the other person is, and how you accommodate or don't."

  Is there some kind of rule to know if a marriage is going to work?

  Morrie smiled. "Things are not that simple, Mitch."

  I know.

  "Still," he said, "there are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don't respect the other person, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don't know how to compromise, you are gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can't talk openly about what goes on between you, you're gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don't have a common set of values in life, you are gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.

  "And the biggest one of those values, Mitch?"


  "Your belief in the importance of your marriage."

  He sniffed, then closed his eyes for a moment.

  "Personally," he sighed, his eyes still closed, "I think marriage is very important thing to do, and you're missing a hell of a lot if you don't try it."

  He ended the subject by quoting the poem he believed in like a prayer: "Love each other or perish."
