1) Happy Highly Passionate – this category accounts for a small percentage of marriages
2) Comfortable Partners - this being most marriages I know
3) Dysfunctional – actually I know a few of these as well
(sure there are more kinds of marriage and at different stages but you get the idea)
The fact is some people still have this fairytale notion that marriage should be all rainbows and unicorns. But why?
If you’ve been married for some time you know marriage can be great and marriage can be hard. People have baggage, get sick, lose money/jobs, and they have kids and responsibilities which puts stress on a marriage.
Marriage isn’t perfect and no one ever told me it would be. Personally I’d rather have a solid partner to walk through the good and the bad of life with versus a marriage that didn’t last but was fun for a year or two.
So I really want to know what’s with all the marital rainbow and unicorn expectations? Isn't marriage doomed to fail if this is how some think of it?
