To My Future Husband: Let’s Never Get Divorced

Dear Future Husband,

I’d really like for us to stay together forever. I think it’s best to put this intention out there now–before we are married–because truth be told, I like you a lot, and I’d really like you to stick around.

Recently there has been some trouble in relationships of people we know. For me, it’s been very hard to watch people I care about go through a difficult time. I don’t care how many disagreements happen or mean things are said to each other or how much build up leads to a breaking point; choosing to end a long-term relationship or a marriage must be an extremely hard decision. It’s a decision I never want us to be confronted with.

I’m sure most people go into a marriage thinking that it won’t end, but we know that isn’t always the case. Some marriages do end. Sometimes hearts and vows get broken and a relationship disintegrates. I really don’t want that to happen to us. If it hurts me this much to see the people I care about struggle, I don’t want to know how it would feel if we were faced with this decision. All I know is that it could happen, and I am willing to do everything I can to try to make it never happen.

So let’s try hard…really, really hard to work on our relationship, to always give it the attention it deserves. Because, well, I love you, and I want to be with you forever.

Love always,

Your Future Wife

    I like this. My husband and I had a similar conversation before we got married. Your post reminded me of that, so I asked him again just now: “Let’s not get divorced, okay?” He seemed to be okay with that. 😉

      Aww. Thanks, Akirah. I get that sometimes some relationships DO need to end for various reasons. Ideally, though, I’d like mine not to end… and I’d like it to be good too.

        Thanks, Caroline. I wish I could help, but it is up to them to do what is best for their relationship. I need to let them make their own choices. Still sad for them, but it is up to them, not me.
