True That

 In marrying, we all wake up with strangers, to a greater or lesser degree*. - Tobias Wolff

*Rest of quote -
 In the run-up to our nuptials we have the freedom and distance to present ourselves as we’d like to be seen; in the day-in-day-out of marriage we will be seen as we are, perhaps to the surprise, even shock, of our spouses.

(From interview about "All Ahead of Them," his new story in the New Yorker, on the New Yorker's "This Week in Fiction" page.)
