Well, that’s what a lot of people wish for when they tie the knot, right? To live happily ever after… with a big emphasis on ‘happy’, of course. But one particular bit of advice I often hear is about how people often forget just how long the ‘ever after’ part is…

Perhaps marriage could accurately be described as a race that goes on forever, with the pace that goes faster and faster. Once the reception is over people will be (constantly) asking you about when you’re going to have a baby. Once you have a baby people will be (constantly) asking you if your child will get a brother or sister. Then there’s schooling, college… and this is just the ‘having children’ part.

Sounds more like ‘hectically ever after’, no?

That’s why ‘commitment’ is actually not as easy as it sounds, and why Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough is such a popular song: it’s more or less true. Real commitment amongst real married couples often comes from having spent months together planning for the wedding, or from realizing just how difficult (and expensive) divorces can be.

Romantic? Not always… but if it works, then all’s good and well, right?
