When it comes to gender, marriage, family, work, and religion – we once thought of them as being fixed, but they’re incredibly fluid. The same is true for love. Love was not something that was originally built between two equal partners in a relationship. It’s something that’s been hard-earned over time.

Love is a story we tell with another person. It’s cocreation through conarration. When you hit bumps in the road and challenges, you write a new chapter in your story together. Love is the constant act of revising and retelling your own story in real time. You don’t do it by yourself. You do it with someone else. The only way you do that is to talk to each other and create a shared narrative.
