This article is about the idea of two people working on keeping a marriage alive.

Marriage-Keeping it Together

It's so easy to fall in love. Before you know it, you feel as though you have found your soulmate, and maybe you have. It's a wonderful feeling. I know, because many years ago, I also found mine. I personally have been married for what will be twenty-two years come July. Although, like many people, we have had our trials and tribulations to get past. But it's more than just getting past your problems. You have got to be open to actually discussing them, and then following up with working on them. There's no two ways about it, everybody has marital problems of some sort. It's just that some people are more private about it than others. And the problems come in many different ways, not just the obvious. For many, it's simply communication problems, or maybe money management is an issue. I'm pretty sure we have been through a list of the problems that can arrise during a marriage. But we have always felt that we have something strong enough to keep. Truly being in love means you absolutely have to be open and honest with each other, no matter the consequence. That being said, look at what you got. Love and cherish each other, and learn to work together. After all, marriage is meant to be forever, so at least try to keep it forever. The pros have always outweighed the cons for us.

Another good share. Too bad more people don't talk through the issues before throwing in the towel.

Great share! It is very true that a married couple must work together to overcome the problems in life. Too often people are too quick to quit rather than work.

Thanks for your comment. I fully agree. A marriage is much like work to some degree. You have to put in the hours to get the best out of it. I believe we all live and learn, and is well worth it.
