When your just married, food is secondary when you get home.
If someone isn't willing to ditch his/her pride and selfishness,
relationship counselling, therapy, self-help books about marriage, etc. are a
complete waste of money. Divorces are generally caused by pride and/or
selfishness. It is REALLY that simple.
Some peple are just toxic for each other - whether a temple marriage or not.
Divorce can be a good thing for all involved. The painfull part is a bishop or
other authority breathing down your neck on keeping it together when you know it
is not a good fit. Freedom is all I can say, FREEDOM!
I think Pastor Meyers sounds like one smart guy.

whether your fiancé is a "good fit". Children deserve to grow up
in a normal environment with bio-parents who love and respect each other. The

@Rifleman"Children deserve to grow up in a normal environment

child who was adopted at birth might have something to say about that. BTW my
wife and I have been married 26 years and we didn't need anyone telling us
that we had to stay married.
remember never put children between you and your spouse. always say i love you
with sweetness, never go to bed or anywhere angry with your eternal sweetheart,
study scriptures together, share your thoughts and fears, pray together, attend
a temple together often. these are just some of the words of advice president
stratford gave my husband and i 34 years ago.
Waiting until you are fully grown up before marrying also helps. Most people
are not fully grown up until at least 25 years of age.
