How much of our time do we spend in relationships in denial about the person we are with? How many little (or not so little) things do we ignore and make excuses for?

I have to wonder because I have my days and wonder why some things are so annoyingly apparent sometimes and not others.

I think love may be related to some type of mental illness. The fact that some of us choose to ignore certain things just to what? To feel good in the moment? To ensure we have companionship?
Who knows.
I'm sure we all have our own reasons.
Perhaps that's just what love is? Or at least part of what it is.
When you love someone, you over look what you may consider being their flaws - as long as it isn't something that is hurting you, the person you love or anyone else.

Sixteen years into a marriage and I'm still not all the way sure.
