The thread about things your SO has done for you recently really got me thinking about how much I love my H. Sometimes he'll just be talking and I'll think, "Wow. I REALLY am in love with this person!" Granted, we've only been married a year and a half but we've been together 5 years and have lived together for 4, so I feel like we really know each other and have seen the best and worst of each other.
So there's this website called ScaryMommy. If you haven't heard of it, they post articles and other stuff about parenting and marriage and how it's not all roses and rainbows all the time. I follow them on social media because it's usually pretty entertaining and realistic (as far as I know. I'm not a parent yet.)
But there's this portion of the website for confessions, and people anonymously post things on there about their lives. An overwhelming majority of people post about how awful their marriage is. Whether their partner is abusive, indifferent, or they just have fallen out of love, SO many of them are miserable!
Again I'm pretty new in my marriage and maybe I'm naive but I feel like that CAN'T be how it's supposed to be, or the norm. How do marriages fall apart like that? I'm a marriage therapist and it blows my mind! I want to blame it on making poor choices or incompatibility but there's hundreds of thousands of people on this site talking about how much their marriage sucks, and think about sites like Ashley Madison. It's kept running by unhappy marriages.
I don't know, this baffles me. What are y'alls thoughts?
