a: Successful marriage ~
b: an elegant ship

What: "A successful marriage is like an elegant ship sailing through the waters and storms of life. The problem with all ships is that they get barnacles- ugly little unseen monsters that attach themselves to the bottom of the boat. Soon the vessel is stuck dead in the water-like the marriage that is going nowhere as the partners peacefully coexist. Little things, like the irritations of misunderstanding that come with wrong expectations, build up."

It's a good analogy, but it's not complete if the goal is to make an analogy of a successful marriage. This only shows that marriage are not perfect. Successful marriages work through challenges. They work on removing the barnacles.
