Good Marriage

A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other guardian of his solitude.
Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue to exist,
a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole and against a wide sky.

- Rainer Maria Rilke

It's a fine balance between seperate and together - not the easiest place to discover...but well worth aiming for.
