Love this! The myth that there is only ONE right partner “out there” is exposed for what it is. Ridiculous. (I also happen to think it’s incredibly destructive and inhibiting to doing the work of building a real, long-lasting relationship) I can’t count the number of times a distressed couple (one or the other partner, and sometimes both) has said, “If I’m having so many problems in this current relationship, then I clearly haven’t found the right one.”
The issue at hand, of course, is that the couple is emotionally conflicted, psychologically entangled, and often, legally married.
