Needs and wants

I think the reason why i enjoy the show Everybody Loves Raymond is because Raymond and Debra represent my idea of what a perfect marriage is like. Last night’s episode, just like every episode i’ve watched, was a funny learning experience i truly appreciated.
“Perfection” in marriage doesn’t mean 100% harmony. What it means is that when disharmony occurs (and it will occur despite our best efforts), the couple are able to talk things through and compromise.
Raymond and Debra are incredibly different from each other — but they are exactly what the other needs in a partner. Its often forgotten by many of us, that what we need is usually more important that what we want.
