Even divorcees think divorce is too easy 17 Dec “We all know that it’s the little things that make a big difference, so adding a bit of quality time, like re-introducing ‘date nights’ or enjoying a meal in together, could be a good way to show you care. Not bothering with make-up and ditch matching underwear in favour of granny pants also becomes common place. Additionally, this is the stage when familiarity with each other leads to memory loss regarding events such as wedding anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Christmas and even birthdays. Couples also revert to being more interested in spending time with friends than each other. But despite entering the comfort zone, two thirds of those polled said they still consider their marriage to be ‘strong’. In fact, only 43 per cent believed taking each other for granted was a bad thing, and 75 per cent said it was ‘normal’ for anyone who has been married for a decent length of time. Nine out of ten people claimed the only reason they behave as they do is because they are so comfortable with each other.

It was the shock of a lifetime. A few weeks after his death, I received a letter from my insurance company.

Thanks to psych0faerie for submitting this to the Offbeat Bride Flickr pool! One thing that is freaking me out at the moment is when I hear of friend and friends of friends, who marry after being together for years, but end up divorced after the first year or so. Could this happen to you? Or any of us? Obviously, there’s no way for us to ever know exactly what makes individual couples split up.
But when it comes to this trend, I’ve got a theory… For better or for worse, each of us has expectations about what being married will mean to the relationship. For some people, that expectation might be, “Absolutely nothing will change, other than that we’ll be wearing rings and will have had a big party.

No, You’re Not In A Common-Law Marriage After 7 Years Together
Nov 29, 11 FuzzDaCat said: I guess it’s recognizing that whole soul mate thing. Less metaphysical stuff, more stuff about two people actually working at a relationship. It doesn’t matter if you found your supposed “soul mate” or not, if you don’t work at making a relationship work, it’s not going to work. The cases of people knowing each other for only a month or two before getting married and then sticking with it isn’t a case of two people who were perfectly matched for each other in some romanticized idea of “soul mates,” they’re cases of two people meeting each other who are able to stick with it and make a relationship work come hell or high water.
People need to stop with this passive approach to relationships.
By Jennifer Hawkins. I was thirty-nine years old when my husband died unexpectedly in his sleep. It was the shock of a lifetime. He was my love, my rock, a crucial part of my life and our children’s future, and in an instant, he was gone.
When you know you just know. Two years is good enough. Marriage is about commitment; the length of dating does not matter. Wait at least a year. A baby takes nine months before being born; a good relationship should take the same. These are some of the answers you are likely to get if you decided to ask people the ideal length of the dating period. One recent research done by The National Wedding Show actually showed that the average couple gets engaged two years, 11 months and eight days after first setting eyes on each other although women felt ready to tie the knot even sooner — after just two years, seven months and 24 days.

March 28, at 3: There are a lot of valid points on here related to age, career, education, religious beliefs. But the key to all situations is honesty.
