NMS — Stairway to Heaven, Highway to Hell, Love Shack. All have described different points of my YHC’s relationship with his M. The Stairway to Heaven part was where YHC thought that his M could do no wrong and where life was always hunky dory. An unrealistic fantasy expectation. Highway to hell represents the times when life’s stressors and craziness spiral couples into Relationship Hell. Lack of trust, focus, intimacy, etc. The Love Shack represents the building we make as married couples. It’s not a mansion. It’s a shack held together by Love. Plain and simple — nothing fancy or showy. Just plain love and commitment. That’s it, baby. See you all in the gloom.
