I’m standing. Exhausted. My legs ache. I smell of deodorant and sweat. My jersey is a clinging wet rag. Night lights are flooding my vision and I hear in the back of my consciousness coaches talking. I have just finished my high school soccer career with a loss. At the time I was relieved. We hadn’t been embarrassed during our last game.

Then my mother told me the title, Fall I....

Human nature sometimes leads us to follow societal expectations and norms at the cost of our emotional wellbeing. We do this even if it’s self-destructive. Marriage is one norm that has become so ingrained in American culture that it is almost ubiquitous, but it has injured many. How can we fix marriage?
