Some things you can learn before the wedding. However, most of the skills required for a long-term, healthy marriage are learned in the first few years of marriage. Many couples enter marriage thinking, We love each other and we are going to make each other happy. However, when they come down off the emotional high of the “in love” experience, they find they are not always inclined to “make each other happy.”

The truth is, marriage cannot be simulated. It is a covenant relationship in which we proclaim privately and publicly that we will stand by each other in sickness and in health, in poverty and in wealth, and we will keep our relationship exclusive, so long as we shall live. It is a sobering commitment which brings great security for the couple who takes their vows seriously. However, working out the daily details can be tricky.
I have never met a couple who got married intending to make each other miserable. Yet, my office and those of other counselors are filled with couples who are very unhappy. The reality is, we must learn how to create a loving, caring, supportive relationship. It does not happen simply by doing “what comes naturally. Jim Burns
