My Mom called me earlier today and told me how she had learned that one of my cousins was getting divorced! It shocks both of us because he and his wife only had been married a little over 2 years and they have a 2 year old daughter. My cousin was one of those who married for the first time at age 40. I really had best wishes for them. I thought for sure that since he had waited to get married at age 40 that he had wanted to make sure he got together with the right woman. I guess all was not going good in what seemed to be paradise. I just feel real bad for their two year old daughter. I know they both love her and are proud of her, but she will have to grow up with spending one weekend with the Dad and the other weekend with the Mom.

Way too many people get divorced way too soon, it is awful. I don't think people teach these newlyweds of the 5 year hill. The first 5 years are the hardest, but if you can make it past that then you go through the second trial of getting to 8 years and generally if they get passed 8 years, they might be happy! Of course, I cannot speak for anyone, but this is just general psychology. This is why marriage counseling and prewedding counseling exist. At least the child is only 2 years old and doesn't really know what is going on, makes it easier on her. It is never easy when there is a child involved.

@LeaPea2417 Most of the time if people get married in a church it is required to do that at least 8 weeks of counseling before the wedding. But I don't know if that is really a thing anymore. Especially if they don't get married in church. It should be though. Many more people would actually be happy in a marriage or know not to get married at all haha
