With the divorce rate topping 50% we can be assured that love is not easy.
Most people don't know what love really means. Have you noticed than when couples get divorced most of the time the kids are still loved by both.
A parents love for a child is so much different than the love of a spouse. Why is that? A parent will do anything for a child, but you would be hard pressed to find a child that would do anything for their parents.
Parents always want whats best for their children, the same should be said for your spouse.
We love our children no matter what they do. They make messes, they get sick, they cry, they complain, they embarrass us. Yet, through it all, we keep loving them.
Then why do we leave the person we marry when they do the same thing? Some people will say, its so much more difficult than that. But is it really that hard??
People say, well she is not the same person I married years ago, or he is not the same. This may be true, but love overlooks this.
When we change, we should try to change together, if we cannot, then we need to accept what is before us. No one said we cannot change ourselves, but trying to change someone else should be up to that person.
If we change, and the other doesn't, we need to accept our decisions we made long ago, For Better or Worse.
