Lessons From An Italian Restaurant

My parents aside, during my formative years, the divorced couple I was most familiar with was Brenda and Eddie from Billy Joel’s Scenes From An Italian Restaurant.  I’ve always loved that song.  There are many attributes of the couple that I whole-heartedly admire:

  • They were once crazy in love.  And they admit it.
  • They pay each other genuine compliments.
  • They tried to make a go of it.
  • They didn’t point fingers to explain their breakup.
  • They had faith in each other after the separation.
  • They grew individually as they went their separate ways.
  • Years later, they can still meet for dinner.
The song was a huge hit.  Why don’t more couples strive to be like Brenda and Eddie?
