People are quick to the throw out how high the divorce stat is, especially when they are trying to justify why they have been hesitant to get married.  Often times we hear of infidelity and the loss of passion in a relationship.  I think it's important to hear from people who have had successful marriages and how they make them work.  Clearly marriage is not a walk in the park, but if you commit to making it work, I believe with a strong foundation and great communication, you can be the rock for one another that you've always wanted.

I found an article on the Huffington Post website in which retired L.A.
