Leonard & Phyllis, Brooklyn, NY - married 1950
I think one of the main things that keeps us from quarrelling is that we never -- or 90% never -- blame the other person for something that has happened. I mean, if you make a mistake, so you made a mistake, that's all.
We made a mistake.
It's "we made the mistake," that's right. And that's really true. I find that doesn't happen too often, in other marriages.
So you surrender your ego?
Yes. In each case. That's exactly the words for it.
That's just the term. That's right.
