Went to kimmy alberts' blog. She wondered if she was going into a relationship too fast.
I know some relationships work, even with a racehorse start. My parents have been married 42 years on Monday and they met in November and married in March. I met my husband in July and married in October. It's been 14 years for us. My in-laws met in May and married in September. They've got 41 years down.
You might say it's genetic, but I don't think so. My husband is adopted.
It might be that it is watching two people slag it out through all the good and bad.
It might be that we all got blessed with our perfect mates. (Don't count on that one.) I got matched with my perfect mate, but I don't think my folks or my in-laws would say they matched well all the time. Of course, neither did my husband and I. Maybe part of being happily married is learning where you need to match and figuring out how to do it.
