How do we know that we have found the “right” mate? How do we know, once we have found that person, that we will not be part of the 50% of new marriages that end in divorce? Emily Esfahani Smith has written an excellent article in The Atlantic that appeared on June 12, 2014. It is well worth reading.
“Science says lasting relationships come down to — you guessed it — kindness and generosity.”
“Every day in June, the most popular wedding month of the year, about 13,000 American couples will say, ‘I do,’ committing to a lifelong relationship that will be full of friendship, joy, and love that will carry them forward to their final days on this earth,” says Smith. “Except, of course, it doesn’t work out that way for most people.”
