Are you planning on getting married within the next year? Are all your thoughts and attention focused on planning the big day?
Most couples who enter into marriage pour all their energy and resources into having the perfect wedding day but put little or no thought into how they will have a happy, lasting marriage. In fact, many people who enter into marriage still have unresolved problems, questions, fears, and doubts about their union, but still take the plunge anyway – and hope for the best.
Most of us can’t imagine how two people who are so “in love” can end up in divorce. We don’t plan on having a bad marriage or think about divorce when we say our “I do’s”. In fact, we think the exact opposite. We believe that we have what it takes to have a happy, healthy, lasting marriage. That’s why we get married. But do we really have what it takes?
Unfortunately, statistics show that 50% of marriages end up in divorce. And of the 50% who stay together, half of these couples are unhappily married (we see many of them in counselling). If we come from a family of divorce, the chances of divorce are even greater.
The small issues that couples have during courtship become full-blown issues in marriage. Time doesn’t make them better. And having kids seems to compound the problem. Marriage isn’t the “happily ever after” we envisioned.
