You take things one day at a time
In marriage number one and two, you were always thinking about forever and the future. You were quick to panic if things felt off, or your connection felt strained. Now, you take things one day at a time. You don’t jump to conclusions. You’ve even come to see how sometimes, if you just wait, life has a way of working things out for you. If your partner, for example, is distracted by work for a month, you understand that it’s a phase. You don’t march the two of you into couple’s counseling.
