Get The Ring: How to Find & Keep the Right One for Life.
Shimon Green - Part 9
besides me? Wait a minute. You can actually think about something else besides me.
No. No, I’ll tell you the truth. I can’t. I’m doing a really lousy job. Every two minutes I stop. You're all I can think of. I’m so happy you called. Now that you called, maybe I can get back to work a little bit. That’s what love’s about. There’s nothing else happening.
And that’s what happens, I guarantee you. You think I’m just talking out of the top of my head? I’m not. What people dream of, that’s what it’s about. But people are too lazy and too selfish to get it. They stop themselves. That’s the truth. It’s not the other person, it’s never the other person. People don’t get along because they don’t want to give it. That’s the truth. When you’re there, there’s nothing else happening.
So what do you do in marriage? You pull the person out and you realize how unique they are. You recognize every little nuance. The way they walk, the way they talk, the way they move their eyes, their sense of humor. And you make it holy and you make it beautiful and there’s nothing like it.

You know why we have an epidemic of people being single and divorced and people not married, because people are lazy and selfish. I know, I’m sorry, I’m not supposed to say it, but that’s the truth. That’s all that’s happening. There’s nothing else happening. People don’t want to deal with it. They just want someone to sit there all day and push their button. They’re stupid. Do you know why? Because you’ll never enjoy yourself. There’s no fun. Take a look. I visit single people. They’ve got everything in the house that married people should have. They’ve got the toaster, they’ve got the drier, they’ve got the oven, they’ve got the skates, they’ve got the bicycle, they’ve got everything but the person they love. Dummy.
When you get married and you sleep on the floor and you’re happy. When I first got married we didn’t have anything. Nothing. We had mattresses on the floor. That was the couch, forget about the bed. One day we bought a table. We went out and told our family. We said — Hey, we bought a table. They said — Really? Did you buy the whole thing? One turned to the other. It’s true. They thought we couldn’t hear. And do you know what they said? They said — You know, they’re
