How many marriages do you know which have not ended in Divorce in 5-10 years?
I am 40 yrs old and do not know a single couple from my generation that has remained married for more than 5-7 years. I wonder if marriage is an outdated institution anymore, since after all most of the traditional gender roles are going by the wayside and one can have children outside of marriage. Please state if you know any couples younger than 45 who have not yet got divorce after 5-10 yrs of marriage and where separation is not imminent.
I know lots of them and alot more that I have thru counseling and advice have been pulled back from the halls of hell and those couples are going 12-15 yrs strong now. It comes down to how bad do you want to make your marriage work and if you two are really in love with each other. Most divorces happen because the couples gave up way too soon and without any outside help. I even have alot of couples in their 20s and 30s with a little help are going on 5-10 plus yrs of marriage.True I cant save them all and dont try to either. Remember if you want something then youll take a risk, if you want something bad enough, then youll risk everything. Depends on what you want and how bad you want it
