Love deserves a fighting chance.
No one ever said that marriage was easy. As much as we don't want to admit it, falling in love and getting married is only half of the battle. But for some reason, we tend to put marriage on some kind of pedastal and expect everything to be perfect from the minute we walk down that aisle.
And that just isn't realistic. With the divorce rate skyrocketing over the past couple of years, it almost seems as if more and more people would rather take easy road out instead of sitting down and working through their problems. Take this video, for instance. According to Procter & Gamble haircare brand, "With the rapid economic growth of China, divorce rates are soaring." After being asked for a divorce, a wife pleads with her husband to hug her once a day for a month as a last ditch effort to see if their relationship is really worth throwing away. Even though this may sound cliché, this just cements why you should never give up on love without a fight.
It can be assumed that before this couple came to this heartbreaking standstill, they experienced times that were filled with both happiness and sorrow. So what makes this time any different? When they recited their vows, one of the promises that they made was to be there for each other through thick and thin. Sometimes, things can get so rough that throwing in the towel may seem like the best bet for everyone involved. Watching this video definitely makes me believe that giving yourself a chance to work hard at it and just try can really make all of the difference. Trust that no matter how small, the sliver of hope beating in your heart will get you there.
