Age old question here. But studies have shown that the divorce rate has actually fallen quite a bit over the past seven years.


WILL YOUR MARRIAGE LAST

c2018 Brian Beecher


There may be some tension within yourself
And what you value gets put on the shelf
Then you meet, fall in love, and get married fast
And everyone wonders will your marriage last

Maybe there’s disagreement with a friend
Saying you moved too soon and one day love will end
Soon you may be haunted by ghosts from the past
And then you will wonder will your marriage last

A more balanced outlook
Will go a long way
To correct your past failures
That causes you to stray
Sharing your ideas
Creates a certain feel
To listen and wonder
If this time it’s for real

You may be struggling and wanting for more
And use your desire to exert more control
More power over others can make things bad
And if you do this then your marriage won’t last

One couple got married after only six weeks
And the time came when they could never make peace
They were both bedeviled by a poisonous past
They knew right away that the marriage wouldn’t last

A more balanced outlook
Will go a long way
To correct your past failures
That causes you to stray
Sharing your ideas
Creates a certain feel
To listen and wonder
If this time it’s for real

There may be some tension within yourself
And what you value gets put on the shelf
Then you meet, fall in love, and get married fast
And everyone wonders will your marriage last
And everyone wonders will your marriage last
