Marriage is a new beginning.
Humans love and enjoy new things. For example, a newborn, a new social media platform, a fresh-baked bagel, new shoes, a new house, or the spring season. What is one new thing you like or enjoy?
Nourish your mindset for a healthy relationship.
Marriages or divorce:
American Psychological Association asserts, “Healthy marriages are good for couple’s mental and physical health. They are also good for children; growing up in a happy home protects children from mental, physical, educational, and social problems. However, about 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce. The divorce rate for subsequent marriages is even higher.”
