Don't Give Up

I don't know who this couple is...but I simply ADORE this photo and all it represents.

My heart literally aches as a result of some very sad situations with people I love that are in the midst of crumbling marriages. It is complicated and painful--and getting out is not proving to be nearly the relief they had thought. It is hard...and there are far-reaching ripples.

I do not want to oversimplify the 'secret' to successful and long-lasting marriage. There are so many challenges when two flawed, naturally self-seeking people try to unite into one team with one goal despite their numerous differences of backgrounds, needs, communication styles, expectations...

However, I know that commitment to keep at it (especially when it is hard) is at the core of the ones who make it, as promised, "'til death do us part."

My husband and I have been married for 45 years. We have had a lot of good times and we have had some tough times. But we stuck it out/worked out things together because we are committed to our marriage. For us it is-till death do us part. :-)
