    But Anyway ...

  • "Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have, for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you."  Hebrews 13:5
     A partnership in happiness needs at least two people of the same mind.  Often we see two young people of the same mind. They may fall in  love and get married. Their continued happiness, however, depends on their staying of the same mind.
