‘Til death do us part!” It seems not all that long ago those words (which were in some way included in every marriage ceremony) really meant something. They symbolized the depth of a promise made between a man and a woman to stand beside one another through any and all circumstances. I really couldn’t tell you if some semblance of those words is still part of a typical marriage ceremony, but I can tell you that unfortunately more than half of all marriages fail. Why? What are the missing or overlooked or unknown ingredients that make a strong marriage? What should we be saying, doing or thinking to be continually building a relationship that can not only last but will grow in meaninful ways over a lifetime?
