Why You Will Marry The Wrong Person

Everybody seeks the "right" partner... a soul mate... that angelic someone with whom we are ideally suited.  Our demanding standards and lofty expectations mean our spouse shall be a person approaching perfection... any remaining "flaws" to be "corrected" after the wedding!

Alain de Botton brings fresh insights into this myth.  Relax! he says.  You probably wont (didn't) marry "Mr.Right" or "Miss Universe", but that's okay.  You'll probably rather chose someone "good enough."  Learning to make the best with the one you choose (chose) is a key to happy, successful marriage.
