Generations of Love and commitment can yield huge benefits.. Sometimes, making the commitment ‘to not divorce’ can be as important as the marriage vows!
Preserving the family unit is quite the legacy!
My parents who met and married in 1948 were from broken homes (the term for divorced used in those days). My parents made a commitment to one another to never, ever put their children through a divorce. Their marriage was at times rocky but we girls never doubted their love and commitment to each other.
Sadly, my two sisters are on their third marriage. (Proving that third time is a charm!) My husband and I will be married 35 years in July. I laughingly but truthfully can say that we could have divorced several times. Thank God we did not.
Our children have benefited from our staying together and so have we! We just shared the birth of our first grandchild. We are in love and feeling very much like the twenty-something’s we were when we first met and fell in love. Feeling blessed that our love was “evergreen”!
