Dr. Manhattan is the equivalent of a lesser god. He experiences the past, present, and future all at once. When he asks Angela to marry him, he knows that she will.
But she’s still doubtful. She asks after his knowledge of their future. In sum, he tells her they will be happily married for ten years… but it will end tragically.
She asks why she should want to enter a relationship knowing that it will end tragically.
He responds with this: “By definition don’t all relationships end in tragedy?”
She concedes the point.
