Surviving conflict -- even in something like a board game -- is essential to a happy, longterm relationship
Last month, I attended my fiancé’s mother’s wedding. Both she and her new husband knew each other for decades, each the surviving spouse of a prior marriage. Their wedding had the full works for a formal church ceremony: unity candles, live vocalists, flower girls and an off-white traditional wedding gown. Her two sons escorted her down the aisle, making a grand entrance in the sanctuary. She beamed when she pronounced her I do’s, and the guests applauded at the union. Regardless of time, the newlyweds found love again.
