Are You In A Happy Marriage?

Are You In A Happy Marriage?

I knew there were people out there who weren’t happy in their marriage . . . but THIS many people? According to a new survey, here are six depressing stats about the state of marriage.   The survey was done in England, so hopefully it doesn’t apply over here.

-10% of people feel like they’re stuck in a LOVELESS MARRIAGE.

-15% wish they’d married someone else.

-20% say they’d get divorced now if they knew they wouldn’t have financial troubles.

-25% say they’re no longer in LOVE.

-30% have given serious thought to ending their marriage or taking some time apart.

-And finally, only 40% say their marriage turned out like they expected it to.

Wow.  That’s all miserable. And the survey didn’t bother to ask people any POSITIVE things, so we don’t even have anything nice to balance it out.

I know there are couples who truly ARE happy. Help me out here by naming 3 things your spouse does to show you’re loved!

1.________ 2.________ 3._______  ( then do those things for him/her in return)
