What Happened To Forever?

Words are so easy to come by, no one seems to care about the effort it takes to follow through with those words.

The statistic speak volumes -The marriage rate for Tennessee in 2007 was 10.1 per 1,000 population, divorce statistics - 4.3 per 1,000 population.

This may leave some wondering the reason behind the FACT that nearly half of all marriages end in divorce these days...What is happening to our family structure? Some people blame the internet. As if it is going to be the downfall of society?

However, when you look at the statistic rates of marriages in 1990 you will find that not much has changed - Tennessee Marriage - 13.9 per 1,000 population....the divorce statistics - 6.5 per 1,000. Hmmmm?

Do not throw that computer out just yet! Things are practially the same as they were before there was a computer (or two) in every home.

Could it be the fact that some marry too early, marry for the wrong reasons, or is it just human nature to never be happy?

I googled recipe for a happy marriage just for kicks and giggles...sigh....if only it where this easy.
