Despite the differences, couples continue to flourish.  A poem about the immortality of love between a man and a woman.

A man and a woman
– Alan Feldman

Between a man and a woman

The anger is greater, for each man would like to sleep 

In the arms of each woman who would like to sleep

In the arms of each man, if she trusted him not to be

Schizophrenic, if he trusted her not to be

A hypochondriac, if she trusted him not to leave her

Too soon, if he trusted her not to hold him

Too long, and often women stare at the word men

As it lives in the word women, as if each woman 

Carried a man inside her and a woe, and has 

Crying fits that last for days, not like the crying

Of a man, which lasts a few seconds, and rips the throat

Like a claw — but because the pain differs

Much as the shape of the body, the woman takes 

The suffering of the man for selfishness, the man 

The woman’s pain for helplessness, the woman’s lack of it

For hardness, the man’s tenderness for deception,

The woman’s lack of acceptance, an act of contempt,

Which is really fear, the man’s fear for fickleness,

Yet cars come off the bridge in rivers of light,

Each holding a man and a woman.
