“You may not have the relationship you want.
But you can have the relationship you make.”
A marriage is woven from invisible inner threads that you sew together, which no one else sees.
But the visible goal of marriage is to make a lasting friendship---a working partnership---that your children take as a model for themselves.
Your marriage models how you respect each other’s dreams, even when your dreams differ. It models how you thrive, despite the storms that life brings. It models how you fight... and how you repair what you fought about. Most of all, it models how a successful, long-term relationship is not made by thinking alike , but how you learn to think together .
None of this easy, but your commitment to these principles is what makes a marriage work.
