Prolonged Marital Warfare

Sunday, April 6, 2008

"Contrary to what his wife told everyone, he hadn’t hungered after the wanton freedom to do anything and everything. Far from it. He hungered for something stable, all the while he detested what he had. He was not a man who wished to live two lives. He held no grudge against either the limitations or the comforts of conformity. He wanted merely to empty his mind of all the ugly thoughts spawned by the disgrace of prolonged marital warfare."

- Philip Roth,
Everyman

Charlie Brown(Peanuts) said - I am paraphrasing - "There is no big problem that you can not walk away from it."

The character in the novel did the walking thrice.
