Marriage is hard, and it requires hard work sometimes. People aren't taught how to be good at marriage or even how to be a good life-long partner, and so we often screw it up. But in failing and learning how to solve problems, you can make a marriage stronger than ever.
Marriage is not easy. Marriage is a lot of work. If you're the type of person who can't take responsibility for your mistakes, runs when times get hard, can't live without putting yourself first and refuse to see that you expect only perfection when you are anything but, then you have no business being married.
THIS. Oh the TRUTH. Love isn't a feeling it's a decision. A choice when the feeling is gone and life is hard and ugly and scary. This kind of Love is what remains when when you have nothing left of the dreams—this is the choice that says, "I promised. And you're worth keeping promises for."
