Change is inevitable; make room for it My wife and I joke about how, if our relationship could survive a quarantine together (which it did!), it can survive anything.
It’s kind of a joke. But it kind of isn’t. I mean, if you still want to be with someone after the stress and the isolation of a global pandemic, that feels like a pretty good sign.
But I realize that the one thing harder for a relationship to survive than forced isolation is inevitable change. I’ve watched three close friend couples go through divorces over the past year or so.
And it was no fault of COVID. Sadly, it was because of the one thing that none of us can stop doing — growing and changing. At least, the hope is that all of us continue to grow and change.
