The "divorce goggles" you speak of are a real thing, but the advice given by those with a tainted outlook on marriage, should be taken in with as much clout as the advice given by those with the marital bliss goggles. In between those two extremes lies everyday reality.

From the day you say "I do", life is no longer about you. If that is a problem, than you are better off not being married. There shouldn't be a decision made or action taken without input from your wife and that courtesy should be reciprocated from her as well. When the two of you take a vow to act as an indivisible team who are going for the same goals, a lot can be accomplished. Conversely, when one deviates, an implosion is short to follow.

Good luck, I am sure there are a lot of great things ahead.
Incredible response, really really well written Sodar.
