Marriage cut short?
#1 Aug 17, 2012
What is the point in marrying someone when the marriage doesn't last? Married for less than two years before getting divorced is crazy. It just seems relationships don't last these days. Some people jumping in to marriage after only being together for what a year or less. Now some people do get married quickly without being together that long, and their marriages do last, but some just don't.

Some people aren't willing to put forth the effort it takes to stay married. IT'S HARD WORK! But it is WORTH it!

Some people don't think past the wedding and the honeymoon as to what it takes for a marriage to work. Unfortunately, all they want is a wedding and a "special day" and not a marriage.
They are crazy

Recently saw someone post on fb about how it was their 1 yr anniversary of their first date with their man. Wait a minute...didn't they get married a month or two ago? How do you get engaged and plan a wedding in less than a year from meeting someone? You haven't overcome the newness yet to see if the real person is someone you can deal with for the rest of your life. Divorce waiting to happen, I say. What does it hurt to just take your time with the most important decision of your life? Only sense I can make of it is maybe they were religious types who were "waiting" until marriage and they couldn't handle their hormones....except I know that girl slept with all her exes so unless she came up with a great plan to get him to put a ring on it I still don't get it

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but personally I don't see how the length of time you know someone should determine when you get married. I married my husband 4 months after I met him and we just celebrated out 8th wedding anniversary. So, I have to say that I am fully aware that is the exception and not the rule, but it does happen.

A lot of people don't realize that a good relationship takes work. Just because it starts out with a lot of fun and a lot of sex, doesn't mean that continues. A lot of times, once the daily fun calms down, the relationship goes down hill, because that is all it was based on. Just because you argue, does NOT mean you have to break up. If you don't like the same things, it doesn't mean you have to get means you are 2 seperate people, just like you were before you met, and compromises should be reached. What you always have in common is love for each other. You don't have to spend every second of the day together, and a lot of couples I see insist on doing so until they drive each other nuts. It is ok for the guy to watch football and the girl to go dance with a friend. It is ok to be apart, ok to argue occasionally, ok to be different. Once young couples realize that, they will be happier.

Couple today spend more time planning the wedding than they do married.
We live in a disposable society. It is all about the event rather the relationship.
Also a big waste of money. But it is about being the center of attention I guess.
Married a long time

What people forget once the newness wears off is that they should always find the time to treat each other like they did when it was new. You should be glad to see them at the end of a work day. Tell each other about it and actually listen. Go out to dinner, buy flowers, text each other "I love you" or something saucy like I do to my husband. He loves it. The more you do like that, the easier it is to have time apart. I personally love having some space during the day, but at the end of it, he should be there.

Oh yeah, when the babies come along, never go out with the buddies and leave one spouse at home to watch them. The time is short and both parents should be there for it.

No one knows how to be married anymore. We are told codependency is a bad thing, but a low level of it is essential to a strong marriage.

There is research on having a strong marriage no matter how long the courtship. If you love each other, it's worth it.

Wish my husband had talked to any of the people that posted on this blog instead of confiding in the slut at work when our marriage got tough. I guess you can guess how it went. I hope he rots in the hell he has created for himself. Actually to be honest I'm thankful, I was pretty blinded at how much he was dragging me down. If he was that easily swayed he's not the man for me, anyone else for that matter.
