Happy Marriages, Sad News

This article was the third most emailed in the NY Times today.

Don’t have time to really comment on it, but thought it was sad for in its failure to even touch upon, let alone delve into, two key issues: emotional intimacy and children.

Specifically, the up side of marriage from this research would seem to be new experiences the spouse is able to share and bring to the relationship and not the satisfaction of emotional intimacy and the joy of pushing one’s inner limits. The lack of discussion about what this perspective does to children is notable, and can be found in the study I linked to in a previous post.
