The Algebra of Marriage

I took algebra in middle school, calculus in high school... so I like formulas. Here's one I've been working on for a while:

H = husband
W = wife
T = history or past, cumulatively variable with time
C = Choices- actions, words, attitudes
E = environment- work, in-laws, kids, the economy, bills, ex's...
P = present
M = Marriage

Wp = W (T + C)
Hp = H (T + C)

M = E (Wp x Hp)


  1. now with some common manipulation you can solve for H... and find out who that guy is.

  2. Pretty intense and insightful. Thought provoking in some ways. Where does "A" for "Atonement" or "R" for "Repentance" fit in? "C" for "conversion"? ;)

    1. I think all three are part of the as-yet unexplored formula for T.
