some kind of ideological convergence

Some couples don’t ask much of one another after they’ve worked out the fundamentals of jobs and children. Some live separate intellectual and cultural lives, and survive, but the most intense, most fulfilling marriages need, I think, to struggle toward some kind of ideological convergence.

I love that turn of phrase: ideological convergence. It sounds like a healthy idea.

I second Hila, and also love the "some kind" part too.
