101 Steps To A Happy Relationship
Dating and marriage is different than it was twenty years ago. In today’s society, more
than 50% of all marriages fail for one reason or another. Just thinking about that
makes “commitment” seem scary. It seems that when relationships are faced with
challenges, people quit trying. Dating is more like a marathon, trying to date as many
people as possible, instead of taking time to get to know someone at a deeper level.
For married couples, divorce is not biased. Whether married for thirty years or eight
months, the outcome can be the same.
The fact is that relationships, whether dating or married, are hard. Things do not
always go perfectly, fighting does occur, and it takes a 100% commitment from both
parties to make it a success. Often when people break off a relationship, they feel as
though something is missing. The “spark” has gone, leaving one or both people feeling
inadequate and unfulfilled.
