People who have realistic expectations of marriage are more likely to have better marriages. That’s the simple truth. But, that doesn’t mean soul-mates don’t exist. They do. There are millions of happy marriages to give testimony to that fact. What we have to realize is that soul-mates are not discovered, they are not found, they are made.
Soul-mates are made from years of growing together. They are the byproduct of shared sacrifice and compromise. Soul-mates are forged from the fire of common pain and heartache, from mutual joy and laughter. You have to put in the years and the hard work. If you expect anything less than that then you’re just dreaming. And, according to the research, dreaming won’t make a marriage work.
Take Away: Soul-mates are not discovered, they are not found, they are made.
