Family Happiness and Other Stories by Leo TolstoyTolstoy has the ability to create a rich world full of its own detail and atmosphere within a mere 80 some pages. That alone is a gift. That aside, Family Happiness really made me depressed. Even though Ive never been married, the issues and the dialogue in the arguments were all too familiar with what unfortunately tends to happen to many long term relationships.
The story of Family Happiness discusses the course of love within a relationship--- its development from romantic love to this sort of dumbed-down, dulled-down version of what Tolstoy considers to be the love that a marriage aspires to be-- one built on the love of the children and a shift from a romantic/desirous love for the spouse to a mutual respect for the parent of your child.
The odd part of it all for me was that the main character, Masha, was actually happy with this at the end, which made no sense to me whatsoever. The end of her romance with her husband and the birth of this new version of love, one that feels sterile and PG, and watered down was something that I cringed at by the end of the story.
If this is a happy marriage, I dont want it.

The family story: Do you know where your grandparents grew up? Do you know where your mom and dad went to high school? Do you know where your parents met? Do you know an illness or something really terrible that happened in your family? Do you know the story of your birth? The stories were sometimes funny, sad, tragic and other times, warmly nostalgic as they talked about long passed away great and great great grandparents, uncles and aunts. Those stories live in my head and imagination to this day.
