Would You Marry Yourself or Someone Like You?


The act of recovery means living life on life’s terms. At times this means disappointing ourselves and/or another. Recovery demands that we be willing do this in order to live a healthy and fulfilled life. Meeting the demands of life is a formidable if not herculean challenge for many of us. More difficult yet, is our basic challenge to set and meet our own demands and realities; these begin only when we are willing to be honest with ourselves. The rigorous honesty demanded of ourselves is no less necessary when in a relationship. In my work with clients I often ask them the following question:


“Would you marry yourself or someone like you?” Explain


For my book, “For Love and Money: Exploring Sexual & Financial Betrayal in Relationships,”  I am compiling answers to this question.  For those of you who are so inclined,I welcome your response. All submissions will remain anonymous.

Thank, in advance.
