Settling for the nice guy not fair to anyone

Dear Carolyn: Being totally in love is overrated. I have never felt that intensely about my husband and do not love him as much as I’ve loved exes. I certainly don’t get along with my husband as well as I did with one particular ex.

But you know what? The men I did love that way either lied to me, hurt me, “borrowed” money, stood me up, left me with wedding deposits I never got back, made promises they never kept. My husband has never done those things.

I don’t look at my marriage as a loss. I look at it as though the spouse I really wanted simply doesn’t exist.
