There are conflicting reports. Some say marriage is an outdated idea and others say that divorce rates are actually down in many states.
I asked this question on my personal Face book page as well as my Daily Transformations fan page and was pleasantly surprised to see that most people say yes~they still believe.
What do you think?
Like many of us, I came from a tumultuous childhood that included divorce. I was however, lucky enough to watch my grandparents enjoy their 67 year marriage. Yes they fought at times; but they held hands literally, until the very end. They laughed, they argued, they were best friends; and there was romance.
My grandma once said to me, “it’s not what you love about someone, it’s figuring out if you can put up with the things about them you don’t love”.
I myself was divorced in my late 20′s and spent most of my 30′s and half of my 40′s running from the idea of it. Lately I’ve been reflecting and realize that I’m finally ready to share my life with someone in that particular way again.
My favorite quote from a friend after sharing with her that a man I knew had been married multiple times over was; “Hey, at least you know he can commit and still believes in love”.
I think I like that quote.
