Sympathy constitutes friendship; but in love there is a sort of antipathy, or opposing passion. Each strives to be the other, and both together make up one whole.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)

We think this way, don't we?
However, the happiest and most enduring marriages seem to be those in which the partners see each other as friends.
But antipathy is more igniting for the passion than friendship, isn't it?
Perhaps this is all written in our programme...
