G.K. Chesterton on Marital Incompatibility

The fascinating writings of G. K. Chesteron (1874-1936) have shown a remarkable staying power.  Two-thirds of a century after his death, more and more of what he created is finding its way back into print.  Check out this comment about incompatibility in marriage:

“If Americans can be divorced for ‘incompatibility of temper’, I cannot conceive why they are not all divorced.  I have known many happy marriages, but never a compatible one.  The whole aim of marriage is to fight through and survive the instant when incompatibility becomes unquestionable.  For a man and a woman, as such, are incompatible.”
