The Lie of Happily Ever After
Marriage isn’t about true love. It’s not about finding the perfect person. It’s about finding someone who has potential and a person we can grow with and improve.
It’s okay to marry someone with different strengths and weaknesses, even if some other people might feel that they are marrying up or down. Sometimes we just don’t understand and that’s okay. We don’t have to.
We all have rough patches and we shouldn’t be judged by them. We all have really good moments too.
We can stick with each other in mistakes and trials. Life is not a happily ever after. No one has the ideal life. We all just keep working and trying our best.
