     The majority of people hold tight to the marriage myth, “You complete me and I complete you.” There is something comfortable about that love myth; knowing that what desired quality or behavior you don’t have your spouse
does. However, it’s hogwash. The reality is we can only complete ourselves.
   Wholeness is within each of us. Being in a marriage where each spouse embodies a feeling of wholeness, and connects from that place of wholeness, creates a greater wholeness…that of the third body….the relationship.
