Just learned that someone I know is separating after just 1 year of marriage… they have this beautiful 3 year-old girl; and seemed like they had everything good in life.
Sometimes things happen that are not expected and a real eye-opener. Tough times will come, and when they do, I just pray that my husband and I will work through them and hold on to our vows.

Ocuh, that is always hard to hear, especially when you are planning a wedding.

Oh it’s always awful to hear that, but at the same time, it makes me take a step back and really SEE all of the decisions my fiance and I are making together. I think because of those surprise separations and divorce nightmares, it has really caused us to reflect on our relationship more and make sure we’re on the same page.
What a shame. My heart goes out to them.

That is always a shocker. I’ve seen it happen too. It just goes to show that you have no idea what it truly going on in someone else’s relationship. Some people are exeptionally good at making others think everything is good in their world.
Its also taught me never to compare my relationship to others. No matter how many similarities there are.

ugh. that is always disheartening to hear, but it’s true and does happen to the best of us.
agree with @jennifer… it just shows how a relationship is only between the couple. you never should compare yourself to anyone else. that’s just an equation for double trouble.
i agree with you @egb, life is hard, but i hope that FI and i will make it out alive… and TOGETHER 🙂

eeee…. so soon! If theres one thing me and my FH always talk about, it’s how we’re prepared to reach the highs together, and weather out the lows, even though it might get really low…
A couple of friends of our just announced thier divorce a month ago. They were always so much fun to be around, I knew they had their differences, but I thought that was charming about their relationship.
But like they say, everything happens for a reason.

Yeah. Especially when, you always see that happen to others and think: WE’re going to make it… they probably thought that, too!

It is sad to hear but unfortunately you really never know someone. Some people are different in private then in public and also some people get married for all the wrong reasons. One of my hubs friend is going through a nasty divorce, found out his wife of 3 yrs was having an affair with a married man for 2 yrs! It was a shock and no one saw it from her nor the way she is acting now in the divorce. You never really know someone no matter how close you are.

My fiance and I had two of our really close friends (our Best Man and a Bridesmaid) go through a particularly nasty fight recently, related to finances. It’s really unsettling when those closest to you struggle through a marital rough patch, especially when they reach the worst case scenario. But it really emphasizes how important it is to not let anything fester.
