You seem to be missing the last part of your message, which indicates that
your current value system is different one than Francais holds, due to the
"ravages of midlife". You also indicate that his value system will become
much like your value system, due to this same affliction.
My response was quite useful, and responded directly to statements you
made. Ignoring those statements by cutting them out of your reply does
not mean they do not exist, or that you did not write them.
Many people hold this same belief, but they fail to see that different
value systems do not age the same way, or even the same value system the
same way! It is entirely true that a person will view life and their
value system differently as they age.. simply because their experiences
and how they react to them, will change the way they view the world.
However, that certainly does not mean that any specific value or ideal
will change over time, just that some will.
Anyhow, the above is a great simplification of value systems, and how
ageing effects them. Obviously page after page could be spent examining
this. The important point I am trying to get across, is that even if you
and Francais started with precisely the same value system (quite
unlikely!), that does not mean that you will both end up with the same
value system, merely due to the "ravages of midlife". This sort of
thinking is in error.
