I have never understood this. My wife is my best friend (so was my first wife—love and friendship wasn’t the problem with my first marriage), and I take delight in her presence and companionship. Our jobs have taken us away from each other at times over the years, and the time apart is always awful. Why would I want to escape from the person whose company I enjoy above everyone else?
