Till ­Whatever Do Us Part: Has America Become too Blasé about Divorce?

Mine and Nick’s one year wedding anniversary is right around the corner [Sunday].  Some days I can’t believe it has already been a year and others it feels like we’ve been married forever—I mean that in the best way possible. I read the below excerpt to him tonight…it’s pretty right on. Then I read the full article to myself. Both are worth the read.

Really interesting read.  Defintiely worth clicking through.

An excerpt:

The point of living isn’t to be in a perpetual state of fairy-tale ecstasy; it’s to find the meaning of life, the meaning of your life. And the point of marriage, I think, is to create meaning, with every happy and sad memory, every hardship overcome, every kind act, every moment of acceptance, every triumph, every child, grandchild, pet, and friend you accumulate ­together. The point of staying married until you die is to have a witness to your whole life, to the meaning you built. In the end, you can look at your spouse and say: Somebody knew me—and I knew them.
