A lot of marriages these days do not survive the ravages of time. People get so engrossed in themselves that they forget the reason they got married in the first place. Being married to someone means that you must share yourself, your life, and your time with them. You must realize that a marriage is as much about the other person as it is about you. People seem to forget that in today’s world. The daily chores, the routine fights, and the struggles of life can sometimes take the focus away from what makes a marriage work.
