Jason had never brought up marriage, but all of our friends had already begun to walk down the aisle.  It made me wonder sometimes how close or far away we are as a couple from taking this final step, or whether I’m just wasting my time.  If you really think about it, marriage is like a second chance, psychologically speaking.  It’s the only opportunity we have to finally get the needs met that our parents couldn’t satisfy.  I wondered if Jason had given up on his needs.  Or whether they were so great that no one woman would be able to reach him completely.  While I’d never wondered specifically about this problem until tonight, it wasn’t something I’d missed completely.
