At least you guys are trying to hold on unlike all the other couples who have already filed a divorce, it means you are trying to make things work for your and your children. And if there are times that you would rather punch your spouse than kiss them, it IS normal to have some imperfections to relationships. That is very much normal because we all have our differences. The part about punching your spouse is not allowed though because domestic violence could get you into serious trouble that cannot be helped by Marriage Counseling Ontario.
All relationships are not perfect. This is not a fairy tale where everything is just honky dory fine. This is the real world where deaths occur on the nicest person and where the evil triumph most of the time.
In THIS particular world, the evil are beautiful and handsome while the good are poor and ugly. Well, most of the time at least, and it is sad that the good has less of a voice than the evil does. But such is our real reality.
Where love stories are not happy all the time. Where marriages and promises of a happily ever after do not exist because we have to give way to practicality. And it might be sad because what we once dreamed of having as a child, for a prince to save us and love us with all their heart, is not really practical in real life.
Because boys are known to be fickle about girls and girls are fickle about almost anything. And this is not to insult either one gender because we know for this to be true. And if you deny it, you are a hypocrite.
We should probably just embrace the fact that we are all lowly pathetic humans who do not deserve anything good so we go for each other anyway because we have no choice. And because we have to at least make an effort to procreate and make the next generation.
Hoping that it would be better than this one. But with the odds being so against us right now we doubt that something like that will not happen for at least another two hundred years. So in hopes of trying to make things a little better in the marriage industry, we have these counseling methods that do their best to make a marriage between two people go back to happier times where they loved each other.
When they thought that nothing else mattered except for the two of them. And that now they have a child or two, they could make a better life for themselves about it. And the fact that they did not immediately go to a divorce lawyer meant that they have faith that this could still be saved.
Because what is the purpose of all the lovely promises you made to each other back then if you are not happy about it coming true now? Be happy for your children at least. They are yours and you should be thinking of them as your first priority instead of the selfish thoughts going in your head about separating.
