Happily ever after is a myth! I’ve been married 12 years, and I know many couples who’ve been married longer. I have yet to experience or see a couple living happily ever after. But what I have experienced and seen is an unbreakable marriage.
Unbreakable marriages are like Palm trees
I live in the midwest where we have tornadoes. When a tornado touches down in the area one way you know is by the broken trees it leaves in its path. States like Florida don’t have tornados, but they have hurricanes.
I’m not sure which is worse. But after a hurricane comes through you don’t see many broken trees like in the midwest. Because they have Palm trees. Palm trees bend, but don’t break. That is more like my marriage, than happily ever after.
Both types of trees go through storms. One type of tree breaks, the other bends, and bounces back when the storm passes. All marriages go through storms. Some marriages break, while others bend and bounce back. What is the difference?
A few habits can make the difference in a marriage that ends on the negative side of the statistics, and an unbreakable marriage.
Here are 7 habits which create an unbreakable marriage.
What do you allows some marriages to bend, but not break?
