Couples Staying Together

Are you and your spouse staying together “for the sake of the kids?” If so, then I’ve got some encouraging news for you.

Did you know that research has proven that couples who stay together for the sake of their children usually end up being happily married a few years down the road? They’ve found that if couples will just stick together and move through the rough times, their marriages usually become fulfilling and strong. They also found that people who get divorced because they’re unhappy, are likely to end up as unhappy divorced people—not to mention what it does to the kids.

The reason is pretty simple. The things that cause most conflicts in marriages—things like money, depression or even unfaithfulness—tend to ease with time. Situations change, and people change with them. Couples who stay together when times are tough almost always come out the other side stronger and more in love. Most say that their happiest years are when the kids get older and have families of their own. So don’t throw in the towel on your marriage too early.
