Did you ever think of separating or divorcing?

marriageYes, we had a rocky period.  Who doesn’t? 40 years is a long time. With the help of lots of marriage counseling we learned how to listen more to each other.  To be more intimate and aware of each other’s needs.  To blow off steam when necessary rather than hold it in.  To say ‘thank you’  and ‘I’m sorry.’
