A Partner

When God said, “It is not good that man should be alone,” he intended, by giving him a partner quite different from himself, to force him to face up to a difficult process of mutual adaptation. He intended him to go beyond himself instead of avoiding the conflict by surrendering to his wife or by enslaving his wife. In other words, he needs to grow up.
