Within this latest post, Ed and Cathy discuss the results of a recent poll conducted by The Huffington Post. The poll concluded that 86% of young people expect their marriage to last a lifetime.
The poll was conducted by Jeffrey Jensen Arnett, a research professor of Psychology at Clark University of Massachusetts. Ed and Cathy believe that, due to today’s high divorce rates, a lot of young people will be left disappointed.
With a view of nurturing today’s young people to become dedicated and long-loving spouses, the couple offer up some of their top tips for happy marriage.
The first thing they suggest is for married couples to be transparent with their love.
“You may think that your kids are grossed out by seeing their parents as lovers, but the truth is that they’re comforted by knowing that their parents have a strong love for each other. Let them see you being affectionate, within reason, and make no secret of the reasons why you love each other,” they say.
Secondly, they suggest being transparent with conflict and its resolution. This includes explaining conflict and its causes to children, and including them in the resolution process where possible.
Lastly, Ed and Cathy suggest being openly positive about marriage, as a whole.
“There are few things in life that bring as much peace, joy and fulfillment as a happy marriage. Let’s help our young people to remain optimistic and idealistic about their futures by role-modeling success,” they conclude.
