"Committed" ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

"No matter how modest or trivial or serious the pillow talk, such hushed hours belong exclusively to the two people who are sharing them with each other. What passes between a couple alone in the dark is the very definition of the word, "privacy." And I'm talking not just about sex here but about its far more subversive aspect: intimacy. Every couple in the world has the potential over time to become a small isolated nation of two-creating their own culture, their own language, and their own moral code, to which nobody else can be privy."
~E. Gilbert
