I know I don't! I'm pretty happy with what I've got, but I know I won't ever stop aspiring for a better marriage.
In fact I don't know anybody who has a perfect marriage and I DON"T believe they exist. With humans involved there will always be inherent flaws. Our egos and the scars of past hurts will always get in the way of being a perfect person.
So I never believe anyone who says they have the perfect partner or the perfect marriage.
But what's with the obsession about perfection?
I was reading a recent blog post on Organised Thoughts, written by Angela Esnouf of Creating Order From Chaos (@creatingorder). She was offering a Productivity Maxim for those of us who may be flawed with a little bit of procrastination in our thinking.
I first heard this one from Sandi Givens as did Angela
But I must say I think that rather than being helpful to procrastinators - it's ideal for perfectionists who'll delay in achieving/doing something so they can keep trying to make it perfect!
That's a recipe for endless frustration and missing out.
So if you're still waiting for your marriage to be perfect, why not try seeing it as a work in progress and get on with appreciating it and all the other good things in your life?
