Are things better? I don't know. I got to have my say, but I'm not totally satisfied with all the answers I got. I don't really have a choice about that though, since I'm not in charge of the world.
I think that's something I never considered. That there would be times, in marriage, in life, that you just aren't satisfied with how things have turned out AND you may not be able to or want to do anything about that.
Probably doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but it's meaningful to me. I guess we make compromises about things all the time and we don't even realize we're doing it.
