How to Cope When You Feel Lonely and Invisible in Your Marriage

We have unrealistic expectations of marriage

I knew that marriage was not designed to provide only fulfillment, joy, and a sense of purpose but I needed proof. So, being the #LoveGeek I am, I went searching for research to help me get a realistic view of marriage.

I found a current trend identified by The Pew Research Center, that concluded that we as a society are actually divided when it comes to the VALUE of marriage. When society is divided on ANYTHING, it can feel impossible to create a sense of satisfaction.

Survey respondents were asked which of the following statements came closer to their own views:

1) Society is better off if people make marriage and having children a priority, or

2) Society is just as well off if people have priorities other than marriage and children.

46% of adults chose the first statement, while 50% chose the second!
