Marriage isn't easy, and many of us cannot say that "ours" would be Fireproof.
I've been divorced, was single 15 years, and now, have been married to Jim nearly 12 years. We've had our ups and downs. We both came with baggage, and old hurts. We met at age 45. Our nests had emptied. Together, we've been able to enjoy traveling; seeing and doing things that we had only dreamed of. For most of us, marriage is a roller-coaster. Some couples are extremely tight and unflappable. Bully for them. I mean that truly...both of my brothers are blessed in unions like that. Marriage, it seems, needs a lot of nurturing, after the cake and thrown rice.
Many of us forget that, and there lies the rub!
This is one movie that I am going to purchase on DVD.

I've been talking a great deal lately with Chatty Crone on this subject. Her recent entries explain all this so much better than I can. She's a smart cookie, and I value her wise words.
