The moral view of marriage (and friendship)

David Brooks wrote a simple article about marriage in today's New York Times. It's right on and can apply to our friendships in life too. The selfless love he points to is the basis of our being.

"The everyday tasks of marriage are opportunities to cultivate a more selfless love. Everyday there’s a chance to inspire and encourage your partner to become his or her best self...it’s a partnership of mutual self-giving for the purpose of moral growth..." -David Brooks
