Hey guys. Have you ever wondered why some relationships last for a lifetime and then end up in a marriage that lasts only for a moment?
I've not only heard stories, I've seen it happen. One of my besties dated her boo for eight years. Eight beautiful years of fun, laughter and togetherness (I say 'togetherness' because it wasn't a long distance relationship and they were together through most of those eight years), then they got married and separated after about six months and eventually got divorced.
One of my favourite musicians Emeli Sande dated her hubby for ten years and they got divorced after just one year of marriage. I'm sure you know or you've at least heard of someone with a similar experience.
Frankly it makes no sense to me. Over the years I've tried to ask my friend why but her explanations alway fall short of dispelling my confusion.
Some couples have a blissful relationship for several years on end but when they get married things fall apart and the center cannot hold so this beautiful couple of yesterday rush to court for divorce papers citing irreconcilable differences.
What gives? What differences appeared that were absent in the five or ten previous years of dating? Was someone pretending all along? Did someone suddenly change? Had all the love been spent up during that long dating period? Was someone not mentally prepared? Could it be *see finish* syndrome? What could the reason for this be? Guys, what's YOUR theory?
