How to begin? I’m not really sure what to call this category! I started with “Marital Bliss.” But, that seems to promote the notion that being married is like being in a constant state of “bliss” ; and that just is not the case. There are ups and downs in all relationships and to assume that any relationship is always blissful is not realistic! So, I was trying to think of a less euphoric sounding phrase. And, surprise, “domestic tranquility” popped into my mind. To my way of thinking “domestic tranquility” is, more or less, an attempt to create a balance in the relationship were the seas are not raging……but there is no dead water either! It’s kind of smooth….not becalmed!
I will cogitate a little more, but this might be the answer…..Maybe I’ll ask Jane what she thinks!!
