Is it really realistic to think this?
I am one of those people, so yes, I think it's realistic. If people actually discuss the important things before they get married and make sure they're not marrying an asshole, it's very realistic. I've been married 13 years and while it hasn't been all butterflies and rainbows, it's been good.
Good for them! Hopefuly they have made sure that the person they are marrying isnt a piece of shit. Marriage is meant to last a lifetime not a few years.
Divorce is very little of an option to us so I understand it to some extent. However I think saying it is never acceptable leaves a lot of room for abuse and adultery.
Why wouldn't I feel anything less than respect for them? Everyone is so quick to run and divorce instead of working on their issues.
i think so. i have endless respect for anyone who not only says this but lives it. Whos puts everything they have into making sure their relationship stays fresh, to making sure it never gets to a point for divorce to come into play. I hate when people think of pestisism as being realistic... its not, its just sad :( also divorce isnt somethign that just happens, its something you have to make happen by giving up. how is deciding not to give up not realistic...? thats just silly!I think that if you go into a relationship with thatmentaility there is a good chance that it will fail and that you do it to yourself. Why even get married/ Just date so that that option to walk is always there and it is alot easier :D
Ive been divorced once, not my choice, by necessity and this time around, Dh and I both say it's not an option...there isnt anything we cant work through
