It’s a new year, which means it’s time for new goals, new resolutions, a new you.
But hopefully the one thing you won’t be trading in this new year is your relationship.
I’m getting to the age where most of my peers are walking down the aisle, where I’m witness to new and blossoming love. And admittedly, as a married woman who just celebrated her sixth wedding anniversary (by working at the hospital for a 12-hour shift, woohoo!), I am starting to feel a little jaded about love.
I know the truth about marriage.
That the shiny new presents, the grandiose party, and the blissful honeymoon suite with the in-room hot tub does not a happy marriage make. Relationships take on all sorts of different shapes and sizes these days, with couples choosing not to marry yet live together, or to forge non-traditional family units.
So just what is the key to a lifelong, lasting union? Is it possible to predict if your love has what it takes to last for a lifetime?
