There are many hurdles that you must cross as a married couple.
Some of them are small, some of them cause substantial problems.
It is a journey that takes side roads at times too over the years. My parents have been married for over thirty years plus I never imagined that they would have any reason to decide to call it quits. When they broke the news I couldn’t help but ask why they had come to this decision. They said that they still loved each other but could no longer live under the same roof. They decided that it would be best if they went their separate ways before it became a relationship that was bitter. The small habits that both of them had tried to overlook plus put up with all these years were just not fair any longer. I was confused so my dad tried to deliver me an example. She said that my Dad was the worst when it came to remembering things that were really pressing to him. She has constantly paid the bills plus strived to save the family as much money as possible. One of the ways she does this is by regulating the temperature in the home to save on energy bills. My mom, blatantly, refused to comply with this plus never remembered to turn the heat or air down when she left the home each afternoon. They had argued about it for years plus yet there was no change. I said that they should just get a programmable temperature control if that was the problem but Dad said that was only one thing plus the other items could not be overlooked any longer. I am concerned about this plus I am sure I will never easily understand even though I know I want them cheerful too.
