Characteristics of Marriage: Love, joy, peace, patience, and one big, fat legally binding contract. It’s time we start thinking about marriage with hope married with practicality.
What if we thought about marriage as what it really is: a romantic relationship in the form of a corporation? Legally, marriage is basically general partnership with all the important responsibilities that come with that. Rather than oppressive, this thought paradigm gives us space to explore how both partners contribute to all aspects of the partnership to help make the business (your family) work.
