'...couples today overload their marriage with such expectations; marriage is given too much responsibility for providing people with a sense of identity and significance. Often the idea is present that, once you are married, problems will disappear, self-esteem will improve and life will get a whole lot better. People expect of marriage what they expect from the sum total of all other relationships - an intense demand that can produce serious tensions.'
Guy Brandon, Just Sex, p.80.
