Dear Mom and Dad:

Thank you so much for having such a strong, healthy marriage.  I'm learning to be really hesitant about committing for life as I've been watching people I love struggle with difficult, difficult things, and I was thinking just now that it's so easy for these examples of struggle and failure to become my dominant models because I'm much more actively engaged with/aware of them (whereas happy marriages just blend into the background), and so I am so grateful that my primary model is the two of you.

Love,
me
