Today on Good Day we talked about the new US Weekly cover on Kim Kardashian and her troubles with husband Kris Humphries. The two married in a lavish $10 million wedding, after dating for only nine months. It got me thinking about what happens AFTER the honeymoon is over? A lot of couples get so wrapped up in planning the wedding, that they forget when it's all over, its just you and your spouse for life!
Here's my take:
In my opinion, you can't have your head in the clouds. You need to know your partner thru and thru. You need to know what makes them laugh, cry, angry, excited, etc. I also think its important to see someone at their most vulnerable, that to me is when you can really see their true self. During the wedding ceremony, you will often hear the Pastor say "marriage is not to be entered into lightly." This is 100% true. While you can't predict the future, you need to have some idea of what you are getting into. I think often in both Hollywood and real life, couples are going straight to the option of divorce. I just think people should stop for a second and breathe...then try to talk with an open mind. Everyday will not be a walk in the park, life wouldn't be any fun if it was. All we can do is ask for strength, courage, and light for the way. After the honeymoon, we just keep on living and most importantly keep on loving!
PS: If you haven't read the book "Five Love Languages"...you need to get it today! It's an excellent book that gives real insight on how to love your partner!
