Psychotherapy Networker Magazine;May/Jun2009, Vol. 33 Issue 3, p42
The article discusses three marriages through which people could resort in order to nurture the sense of belonging and not belonging. These dynamics include a relationship to other people and other living things, through work, and through understanding of what it means to be alone. It notes that if a person can evade emotional commitments to others in marriage with another person, it is harder to ignore in the relationship with work.
