Do We Expect Too Much From Our Spouses? Rosamund Pike Thinks So
In a recent interview with Spectrum magazine “Girl Gone” star, Rosamund Pike, doesn’t hold back when sharing her thoughts on marriage. She says, “we have ridiculous expectations of a mate,” and continues to elaborate,
“In my grandmother’s day, you wouldn’t expect your husband to fulfill the same need in you as your sister, or girlfriends, or colleagues at work. You’d have different needs met by different people.
‘Now we want all our needs met by one person, and I don’t believe that’s possible. Or rather, it is, but I don’t think it’s universally achievable.”
We think its true for both spouses – the expectations aren’t achievable. We set our goals so high for the relationship and its hard to attain that type of perfection. On another note, we can’t wait to see the movie “Gone Girl” its received glowing reviews!
