We never know whom we marry; we just think we do. 
Or even if we first marry the right person just give it a while, 
and he or she will change. For marriage, {being the enormous thing it is} 
means we are not the same person after we have entered it. 
The primary challenge of marriage is learning how to love and care 
for the stranger to whom you find yourself married.

~Stanley Hauerwas



Happy Anniversary, beloved stranger.
