Shortly after my marriage ended, I met a couple who, instead of the anniversary dinner complete with champagne, would sit down, look eye to eye and ask the question, “Are you good to go?” The sense of re-engagement hit me hard. I truly believe that if my former husband had realized that our marriage was not a fait de complete, that we would not be divorced today. The ‘forever’ contract of marriage has the moral hazard of breading complacency.
What if instead, you and your partner had to re-engage? Would you treat them better? Would you be keen to show your best side?
