Re: Advice for soemone getting engaged

I would say to someone getting married that even the happiest marriages go through miserable times.

My grandparents were so in love, and were married for 65 years. Even at ninety they would have a kiss and a cuddle. But by their own admission they went through 4 years of misery during their marriage where they didn't get along at all, if it had happened now they may have got divorced but they didn't - and 4 bad years out of 65 is nothing really - they can laugh at it now. I would say to your son, be prepared to have a few awful times but lots of brilliant times, and never go to sleep on a row.
