The make-up of a good, fulfilled marriage

Marriages are made in heaven, but they are lived here on earth. What makes a good, fulfilled marriage? How far do couples travel along, hand in hand, to reach this state?


I've been divorced for three years so I can tell you what does not make a fulfilling marriage. All couples begin from a place of love. But sometimes you just grow differently as individuals, as happened in our case. We realised while we cared for each other. The love was gone. And we could either stay in a marriage of convenience and maybe even friendship, or move on with mutual respect. A marriage breaking news not be because you didn't try, gave up, or hate the other person. Sometimes it's the harder yet smarter thing to do

After a point, it is energy and enthusiasm that keeps it and compatibility does not last that long (most cases of course)


Mostly compromise, yes; but that too is often higher in percentage from one of the partners. Rarely it is both of them who do the 'adjustment' & that certainly make a marriage good in true sense!
