Marriage is NOT your vehicle for happiness (or misery).Many people enter a marriage, assuming their marriage will make them happy.  Too many “Happily ever after movies,” perhaps.

But nor is your marriage a vehicle for misery.

If you look to your marriage to make you happy, you violate this law.  If you blame your marriage for your misery, you violate the law.
