I know I’m jaded about marriage because mine didn’t last. But I do believe in taking marriage vows seriously. Sadly, in my own case, my own beliefs were not enough to make it last until death as we promised each other on November 1st, 1986. Sometimes I wonder if it’s because I’m the one who got sick. No, I am a fighter and I don’t think I would have given up if the tables were turned. My parent’s marriage was an example of true commitment. They got married at 18 and 19 years old, and have been married for 65 years. Of course they were tested over so many years, but I guess their generation just didn’t believe in getting divorced. Today, there is a divorce every 36 seconds in the US!
