FAMILY RELATIONS

From the May 1990 issue of The Christian Science Journal


" Happily ever after happens only one moment at a time" Is it possible to live "happily ever after"? There is much in contemporary fiction, music, and movies which perpetuates this myth—and perhaps thereby contributes to the prevalence of disappointment in marriage and dissatisfaction in singlehood. If we accept the premise that another person—a husband or wife— can truly make us happy, we may feel disappointed in the relationship when we experience unhappiness.
