In today's society is it realistic to be committed to one person for the rest of your life? I really hope so but how do you teach your children that it's not ok to divorce when they see that they have 4 grandparents on each side. And how do you keep the love and relationship alive?

I don't think divorce is wrong... just getting a divorse without trying to work things out first. And the best way to prevent divorse is also to really know the person you are marrying. I know people who got married after only knowing eachother for a few months. I dated my husband for 4 years before we got married. The best thing you can do is explain that a marriage is a lot of work. And just because relatives in the family get divorsed doesn't mean that kids will grow up to do the same. I think it would be more wrong if a relationship is real bad and they stay married simply because divorse is frowned on. Some people stay in abusive relationships because they were raised that divorce is not okay. Instill in your children the true meaning of marriage and that you have to work hard to have a successful one and I'm sure they will make good decisions.

I found the right man for me, but it was not easy to find him. We had to go through a lot together before we knew that we were meant to be. "For better or worse, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, in good times and in bad." all happened BEFORE the wedding, and that was how we knew we could get through it all.
