Marriage is a brutal reality.

[Carl Jung: “Marriage is indeed a brutal reality….”]


My dear N., 29 September 1934

Thank you for your letter!

Marriage is indeed a brutal reality, yet the experimentum crucis of life.

I hope you learn to endure and not to struggle against the suppressing necessities of fate.

Only thus you remain in the centre.

I should like to come over to England once more.

But I find it exceedingly difficult to prepare new lectures.

I have almost no time.

Please give my best regards to Mrs. N.

Cordially yours,
