Like many of you I’m watching the new season of House of Cards. It’s a brilliant series, thrilling at times.

There was this scene with Frank and Claire – sitting on a window sill, smoking. They seemed so much more friends, mates, companions than just husband and wife or lovers. Having each others back, supportive of others ambitions. It made me wonder which one is better – a marriage based on love which can one day pass or find another object or one based on friendship and loyalty?
