So here's how it went with me:
Got married one day, thinking, "Hey, this is grrrrreeeaaat! I'll never be alone again."
Well, it didn't take too long for me to realize that in some situations, no matter how hard she tried, my wife just couldn't know or understand how I felt or where I was coming from. Try though both of us might, we simply couldn't maintain an endless state of this bliss of oneness. So I came to the realization that on some level, however small or insignificant, there would for ever in my life be moments of alienation and loneliness. The challenge then became how to minimize these excursions, both in frequency and duration.
One day I heard a preacher say something like, "God desires to bring you to a place where you are alone with Him." Then it hit me. These moments of alienation and loneliness that I have been trying to avoid are actually opportunities --opportunities to spend time alone with God.
