There would be fewer divorces...

If people would love more, fight less, critizice less
If people would be willing to truly listen to their partners
If we were willing to alter our perception of what love means
If being in love - if that feeling - lasted forever
Or if we knew that it didn't... we wouldn't have to pretend we always felt "in love" with our partners

The bottom line.
Marriage takes work.  Its not supposed to be easy.  Its not supposed to be rainbows and butterflies all the time.

The purpose of any relationship is simply to hold a mirror so that you may see yourself more clearly. 

Marriage isn't just any relationship however, its THE relationship.  The most important relationship with another to show you  - yourself.  So that you may, change old habits for new habits.  Grow by making small steps everyday to become more loving, strong or compassionate. Create more patience, more consistency, little by little.

  1. This is great. Everywhere Cory and I turn people that we know are getting divorced...and when we had some rough times it was a bit disconcerting to think of how 'easy' it would be to divorce. However, I believe that almost anything can be worked through :) Thanks for posting this!
