"There is no hell worse that being trapped in an unhappy marriage," my mother always told me, which is possibly why I have never wed. I do, however, remember traveling with various boyfriends, and depending on how well the relationship was going, the trip was usually a metaphor for the situation as a whole. You are trapped with the person until it is over, so people tend to let their true selves out with the full knowledge that you cannot leave them (at least until the plane lands). I suppose the bonds of marriage instill the same altered reality. But this is where Buddhism comes in: You must accept that marriage is hard and takes work. Just like life.

"Ready?" said the dad.

"Ready as I'll ever be," said the mom. The son was already out the door.
