I just realised that today would have been my 20th wedding anniversary, if I were still married that is. That got me thinking about how marriages fail.
It always warms my heart to see a loving couple chatting endlessly about anything and everything under the sun. My best friend is one good example. Even after 3 decades, she never run out of topics to discuss with her husband.
I guess I wasn't so lucky. Maybe we didn't try hard enough. Afterall, maintaining a relationship is a lot of hard work. Our 10-year marriage was peppered with arguments instead of conversations. Angry and hurtful words were hurled at each other on a daily basis. Sadly, that wiped out whatever love and respect we had for each other.
Then again, a relationship starts to go downhill when the couple run out of things to say to each other. A healthy relationship thrives on healthy communication. Without that, couples start to drift apart and come to a dead end.
Why am I musing about this today? I also don't know. Anyway, I have to run off for a meeting now.
