I think I heard this from Rabbi Jacobson, a lecturer in theyeshiva.net but I don't recall where. In this lecture (minutes 39 to 47), he mentions it again:

That everybody has expectations in his wife before he marries her and after he marries her she is more realistic and this is learned from Yakov who married the beautiful Rachel and woke up to Leah

What is the source of this teaching?
If it is not accurate please correct it.

    This question would be more compelling and answerable if you'd edit in as much information as you can about where you've heard of this concept. – Isaac Moses Aug 28 '17 at 16:21

    @IsaacMoses I can not find it , the closest thing I found was minute 39 and 47 theyeshiva.net/item/183 (I think I heard it the first time also from Rabbi Jacobson) – hazoriz Aug 28 '17 at 16:34

    Please edit in something like "I think I heard this from Rabbi Jacobson, a lecturer in Yeshivas Torah Umitzvos and noted expert in the field of marriage, but I don't recall where. In this lecture (minutes 39 to 47), he mentions a similar concept, related to business partnerships: '... as we see from Yaakov Avinu and Rachel Imeinu, don't go into a relationship expecting to ...'" In other words, as much information as you can. – Isaac Moses Aug 28 '17 at 16:39

    @IsaacMoses I did a little (some of what you wrote I do not know and do not want to write myself, fell free to add it yourself). Thank you for the mentoring – hazoriz Aug 28 '17 at 17:06

    @IsaacMoses if you want me to write up what he is saying I can. I personally, in this case, do not think someone should care about it because of who said it , only on its own merits – hazoriz Aug 28 '17 at 17:37
