Marriage: For better or for worse

Marriage: For better or for worse

This picture is a reminder about the wow married couples make during their D-day!

An educational psychologist illustrated the second quote below that how one squeezes a toothpaste tube (in the middle) became the triggering point for a divorce!

  1. Dave Meurer: “A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.”
  2. Don’t hang on to small annoyances. So many marriages have slowly deteriorated over the smallest, silliest things. Lisa Jacobson

  1. You can make unhealthy relationship to be healthy through communication, commitment, caring and compassion.Learn his weakness and smile when he starts again. I know that it is not good for romance.Ha,it is for the kids,for better and for worse. But if the hit in that kitchen is too much,the kids are miserable and you are miserable, get the hell out.Open your eyes next time and get the one that you can tolerate his or her ” non modifiable risk “.Otherwise you will find yourself marrying number 3,4,5,6,7,8,9.Why ?.Because there is no perfect partner.
