A happy marriage perhaps represents the ideal of human
relationship—a setting in which each partner, while acknowledging the need of the other, feels free to be what he or she by nature is: a relationship in which instinct as well as intellect can find expression;
in which giving and taking are equal; in which each accepts the other, and I confronts Thou.
