Jan Parker of the Association of Family Therapy said: “The authors are right to point out that the pursuit of relationship nirvana can be potentially damaging.”

She said it was important to explore what people mean by a happy and healthy relationship, because nobody’s life or relationship can be in a permanent state of happiness – there will always be more difficult times.

This sounds like kind of a no-brainer to me, but apparently there are a lot of people out there who have been brainwashed into thinking that getting married somehow gives them a guarantee of living ‘happily ever after’. It certainly wasn’t always so.

I blame Hollywood. 😉
