I think marriages should last like they used to.  We give up too easy on our relationship for things that can be overcome.  Instead of talking to professionals we choose family members that are one sided because they want to protect you.  Unable to tell you if you may have been in the wrong.  We need self-reflection and people to help push us.  Instead of routing for the relationship to end.  Marriage is forever.  Love changes but never dies.  (This doesn’t go for abusive relationships).  In my marriage we have been together for 15 years and married for 10 years and been through many relationship pains but we don’t let it break us. My husband and I do this together to help other couples have a voice to be heard.
