The study’s findings are consistent with other research demonstrating the powerful effects of marital commitment on marital happiness. A strong commitment to marriage as an institution, and a powerful reluctance to divorce, do not merely keep unhappily married people locked in misery together. They also help couples form happier bonds. To avoid divorce, many assume, marriages must become happier. But it is at least equally true that in order to get happier, unhappy couples or spouses must first avoid divorce. “In most cases, a strong commitment to staying married not only helps couples avoid divorce, it helps more couples achieve a happier marriage,” notes research team member Scott Stanley.

You are right love will not always be present in a relationship but when we love something greater than ourselves and submit ourselves to that love everything else has a way of taking care of its self we can agree. I would be a fool to think that marriage is just blissful all the time everyone knows that is not true.  Commitment to something greater other than a responsibility to our own survival and the life we think we should have is not always sure ground I have known the pain of tasting passions before they were meant to be unleashed; I have known the pain of being left for money someone with more money and the pain of having too much; I have know the loneliness of being the one who has hurt the one I loved and I have tasted the thrills of thinking nothing in the world could thwart the flames of true love but unfortunately we are all human and the hardest thing I had to learn that when you choose to love someone it is a promise you will be hurt eventually by the other person or be the one who hurts and all the pain I have felt and joys I have received from loving without the truth you talk about I would not change the moments of blindness although the pain of it was great because it was through the pain of loving that I came to know the truth of real love. C.S. Lewis The Problem of Pain is also a great book. Sometimes we want others to see this painful road before they go down it but maybe it is on that road that they find real love.

Ericca, you said, “I would not change the moments of blindness although the pain of it was great because it was through the pain of loving that I came to know the truth of real love.”

Interesting what you said. I will check out that book by C.S Lewis
