“I always remind myself that a short memory is the key to a long relationship. We have a nice home together and I didn’t look for perfection when I went into the relationship.

When I was younger love seemed much more idealistic. You believe in the romantic idea that two people come together, and they’re soulmates, or two wings of a bird, or something…

But it’s not like that. At least from my perspective. I see this in almost every relationship. It’s not very romantic really.”
