We recently received a comment about a couple splitting up and it brought to mind the topic of divorce. My wife and I are no strangers to the topic of divorce. We’ve had discussions about it a few times and each time was scary, but it was also groundbreaking in our relationship.
In our most recent vlog, we talk about our experiences with discussing divorce and ways in which we’ve managed to not go down that path in our relationship. Dates, couple getaways, therapy, and self-awareness on how we speak to each other has been very helpful to keep our relationship strong and allowing it to grow so that we are a better couple. Not only do we think that personally growing as a couple is important to stave off divorce, but we’re also focusing on growing as individuals. For instance, my wife Susan recently suggested that we take classes and continue learning as adults.
Yes, divorce is a scary topic and it’s a really difficult time for those who go through it. But we think it’s important to discuss it as it makes it less scary if we are open and honest with each other and on the same page — we don’t want to get divorced and we’ll try anything to keep that from happening.
