The Marriage Myth – Another great article on marriage and treasuring the small stuff. And THIS…
So to create life’s list of expectations and believe that everyone must follow them in order is really unfair. The best thing we can do is be honest about it — speak the truth: marriage is wonderful, but never perfect and should never be entered into without a clear understanding of what’s at stake. Hopefully the good outweighs the bad (luckily, in my case it does). Although it isn’t always glitter and unicorns, if you make it important and you tend to it, a marriage can grow to be something great and serve as a strong foundation when life isn’t dishing out that scoop of fairy tale ending.”
