For centuries, marriage was viewed as an economic and social institution, and the emotional and intellectual needs of the spouses were secondary to the survival of the marriage itself. But in modern relationships, people are looking for a partnership, and they want partners who make their lives more interesting.

I've been married a few times also and I'm astonished at what those beautiful wonderful women saw in a lazy drunken lout. The only thing I can figure out is that I was funny, fun loving, and did make their lives "interesting". We are still friends and socialize and perhaps even closer emotionally than when we were married.
My current marriage has also been the longest and most satisfying. Perhaps it's because we were partners in business before we were lovers and learned the importance of trust, communication and honor together.
