Married in name only, divorced in reality
I sometimes wonder the battle to reduce the divorce rate is more about numbers than people. If a couple is legally married, but living like single room-mates, do we count them as married and score a victory? If a couple is married but miserable, if she is cheating repeatedly, or he is beating her, is that a “marriage saved?”
Let’s be more aware of this with those around us. Let’s not just settle for married, let’s work towards happily married.
Likewise for your marriage – avoiding divorce is good, but it’s hardly laudable if one of both of you are miserable. Any marriage can be better if both husband and wife are willing to work at it, and most marriages can be made better if just one is willing to work on it. Don’t be a married single – fight for a real marriage.
