even though the fact that he may see Marianne as a substitute for his other love has always made me think that all is not right with that marriage. Besides I think Marianne didn`t love him. She cared for him, but there was no passion. Without at least a bit of passion, is it love?
] IMHO, no.
Luisa, I agree with you on these points. Brandon I think, did see his former love in Marianne thus my hesitance in calling him truly happy.
Also, Marianne by nature was passionate and I have doubts whether the marriage served this need in her.
Yes, i believe that Passion is a quality of the spirit and must enter a really good relationship at some point-this may happen at the beginning or in the middle but it does preserve a match from becoming stale and predictable.
