Monday Quotable

I love my husband beyond measure but it is important to me to build the world I want. He is an integral part of my world but my vision for the future is my own. The same is true for him. The beauty of our love is that we can allow each other to create and build/follow dreams because our visions are compatible. We don't feel the need to have our relationship and our path driven by one person's dominant vision. I can't imagine relying on someone to create what they think is a good life for me. That must be why (ok, it's totally why) Khalil Gibran's essay On Marriage from The Prophet was part of my wedding ceremony. What about you? What's your position on who should build your world?
