My husband is not my perfect soul mate. Even after over a decade of working with high school students, seeing the faces of teens when I make that declaration never gets old. It’s like watching every young girl’s dream get dashed. But this is not Disney world; it’s real life, and I don’t think any woman will ever marry her perfect soul mate. Even more, I think until we accept that fact and impart it adequately to our children, we will continue to live in a world that struggles with marital happiness and longevity.
