I can see how this would be very convincing for a person who had that type of marriage - where your spouse is your best friend.

For those engaged in a power struggle that feels like a death match or are very neglected - living almost entirely separate lives - this would sound more like a Hollywood fairyland than anything relatable to their life.

I can think of times in my life where the idea of any of that in my marriage was nothing short of laughable.
