If you have a great career and a bad marriage, you will be miserable. If you have a great marriage and a bad career you will be joyful.

This advice was taken from a graduation speech by David Brooks, journalist from the NY Times …

“You will confront this problem: Is this the person I want to marry?

This is the most important decision you will face in your life. If you have a great career and a bad marriage, you will be miserable. If you have a great marriage and a bad career you will be joyful.

I tell every college president I can that they should compel every student to major in marriage. Students should be compelled to take courses in the psychology of marriage, the literature of marriage, the neuroscience of marriage, the history of marriage.”
