I read somewhere that 50% of marriages end in divorce. I wonder how many relationships the husband and wife had to go through before they eventually ended up getting married... and then divorced. I guess a successful relationship has an even lower chance of succeeding than a marriage. But that brings up the question: what is a successful relationship?
When marriage is not an option, how do we know a relationship is successful? Is it simply as long as they're together it's successful?
Given the odds, it's almost a sure thing that a relationship will fail. Still we go into them hoping against all odds. But for those who don't believe it'll last, why go into in the first place?
But maybe most of us have to accept the fact that things may not last. But then shouldn't that push us to make the most of it while it lasts?
Make every day together count, make every fight a lesson learned, and every occasion a celebration.
