What Makes a Marriage Last Forever?
When you first say the words “I do,” the idea that your marriage will last forever feels like a given. Of course it will! That’s why you’re committing for life in front of God and everybody! You met the right person, who miraculously felt all melty with you just like you did with him. Your marriage will definitely last forever and ever–the end.
But then life kicks in, there’s a misunderstanding, and you notice he has a strange way of doing things, or he hurts your feelings or gets very angry. Oooh! Maybe he has an anger problem and you notice that the “forever” part seems longer than it did during that “I do” session.
It’s a big accomplishment to stay married forever. I used to think it was just luck, but now I know that there are powerful habits that contribute to marriage longevity.
On today’s episode of The Empowered Wife Podcast, we’re talking about what makes a marriage last forever.
