What Marriage Requires to Last? My grandparents showed me.
With the recent passing of my 89-year-old grandfather, I witnessed one of the saddest and most beautiful testaments to a life-long marriage. Shortly after his passing, I watched my grandmother sit and weep at my grandfather’s bedside. She spoke to him and told him how much she loved him, will miss him, and how they had many good times and bad. This was a marriage 68 years strong, unfathomable by many this day. As I watched, with tears in my eyes, I began to reflect on what marriage truly is.
