Some of my couples, years later, they come to me and thank me. Others, well, let’s just say they are less than pleased. They think I’m here to make them happy. They have never learned that matchmaking is about making the culture happy, not the couple. Do they still think they are the center of the universe? Alas, it is sometimes so. After so many years doing this work, people sometimes ask me if it made me happy. What a question! Happiness is completely overrated. I’ve been happy exactly five days in my lifetime. That’s more than enough for anyone.
