Paul Newman on marraige

Paul Newman on marriage: “I’ve repeatedly said that for people who have as little in common as Joanne and myself, we have an uncommonly good marriage. We are actors. We make pictures and that’s about all we have in common. Maybe that’s enough. Wives shouldn’t feel obligated to accompany their husbands to a ball game, husbands do look a bit silly attending morning coffee breaks with the neighborhood wives when most men are out at work. Husbands and wives should have separate interests, cultivate different sets of friends and not impose on the other … You can’t spend a lifetime breathing down each other’s necks … We are very, very different people and yet somehow we fed off those varied differences and instead of separating us, it has made the whole bond a lot stronger.”

  1. Holy crap that is a good quote!

    One person can’t be your everything, right? It’s not healthy.

  2. You know, I think the very reason why most relationships fail is because someone is always trying to make the other person into a replica of themselves! Like Why don’t you want to do the same things I want to do? Why can’t you see when the dishes need washing? why can’t we go to bed at the same time? Why arn’t horny when I am??

    If we just accept that people are NOT the same as us, life would become a lot simpler and a lot less stressful.

    Ok, it’s good to have a common bond or two. I’ts a good foundation if your core values are meeting. But remember, opposites attract! I think this gives a relationship a whole new dimension to be explored, not supressed!

  3. “Why arn’t horny when I am?? ”

    Wait, this is an absolute must for me in a marriage. That and hot female friends that my wife likes to bring home and share with me. LOL
