We Americans often say that marriage is "hard work."  
Life is hard work, of course, and work is very hard work...but how does marriage become hard work? Here's how: Marriage becomes hard work once you have poured the entirety of your life's expectations for happiness into the hands of one mere person. Keeping that going is hard work. 

- Committed, by Elizabeth GIlbert
