A Mighty Marriage

Every marriage goes through times of trial and testing — and weathering those hard times can strengthen your relationship. Sometimes marriage can feel like a large oak tree in a wind storm. You can see the branches swaying and bending with every gust. At times you wonder if the tree is going to survive. You might think that these raging storms weaken the tree but they actually serve to make it stronger — and the greater the winds the more resilient the tree becomes. Well, the same holds true in marriage. When couples learn to stand firm in the face of trouble it can actually strengthen their ability to solve problems in the future — and with each new storm they may grow even closer as a couple. The key is to dig in your heels and refuse to give up no matter how tough things get. And the end result is a marriage as strong and stable as a mighty oak.
