Any successful relationship must be rooted in love. However, love is not enough. Love brings bliss in the early stages of relationships, but it only grows and blossoms if it is tempered with this one special quality.
While most people do get to experience “happy for a little while,” only a select few make it to “happily ever after.” Relationships are tough. And sustaining a relationship after the butterflies are gone, and you’ve seen her without makeup or have been assaulted by his morning breath–is especially difficult.
There is no recipe or secret to making a marriage last, there are however some key indicators that you may be on the right track.
“Love doesn’t make the world go ’round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile.”~Franklin P. Jones
