The Exception Clause: The past is not all important
In searching for a life-mate you still have to really get to know a person, weigh their character, and make sure marriage means to them something like what it means to you. I intentionally married a woman who chose to delete the word "divorce" from her working vocabulary. Self made amnesiacs, we don't know what it means. We may be tempted to kill each other from time to time, but there is literally no exit but death. Uh... the natural kind. Sounds rough I know. But it's not really Sartrean if our hearts may be kept soft and tended by some unseen grace. The company then, is good.
Wish you the best in your search, if that's what you're doing.
