I attended a wedding over the weekend -- beautiful wedding -- of a couple just younger than me. I love that moment when the bride first comes out and everyone's breathe catches. And I LOVE to watch the look on the groom's face as he sees his bride walk down the aisle. Those are the moments that make you think, "They're so in love. This marriage will last a lifetime."
At the wedding this weekend someone commented they told the groom "You've got a real princess there." And he responded, "I got more than a princess." It would be amazing if couples could wake up with that same feeling everyday of their marriage without worrying about life's little arguments.
After the wedding a friend and I were talking -- both of us not necessarily skeptical of marriage, but wondering what it takes to make a life-long commitment work. We just had a story on the news yesterday of a Wamego couple celebrating their 76th Wedding Anniversary. Amazing!
So I pose this question to you -- whether you are a newly wed, been married a while, a divorcee, or just have an opinion on the matter -- what do you think it takes to make a marriage last a lifetime?
