Do you believe in “soul mates”, that there is only one perfect person for everyone? Or, do you believe that finding true love is a process of trial and error? With the divorce rate on the rise, it is hard to conceive of the concept of “the one”, and easier to envision having multiple “loves of your life”. While some couples are lucky enough to find each other, and stay together, the more frequent result of a marriage is divorce. Exploring what factors contribute to believing in Mr. or Mrs. Right may shed light on why some relationships end in divorce.
The Huffington Post recently published an article on the topic, and came up with a list of things every man thinks when he’s met “the one”. Some of the highlights include:
● Stepping up to give up your own needs in exchange for the needs of your mate.
● Engaging in self-improvement activities, such as starting a fitness regime, or getting your finances under control.
● Identifying problems with past relationships, and believing those problems don’t exist in the new relationship.
● A sudden belief in destiny, or fate.
Unfortunately, many of the things on this list can be temporary. When a relationship is new, it is common to feel as if it is perfect. But, the bottom line is that no one person or thing is perfect, and having an expectation of perfection can put unbearable pressure on a person or relationship. When that happens in a marriage, divorce often follows. Divorce is hard, both financially and emotionally. But, the process is not one you have to go through alone.
