Marriages are perpetually in a state of transition, moving from one season to another. It has nothing to do with how long you’ve been married, but with the quality of your marriage. A winter marriage is cold; and filled with arguments or silent suffering. A spring marriage is filled with hope and excitement. A summer marriage is relaxed and comfortable; you have solved major conflicts and accepted each others uniqueness. And a fall marriage looks good on the outside, but the leaves are about to fall off. You are drifting apart. Want to spend more time in spring and summer? It begins with admitting past failures and changing behavior.
