When married people “tell you” about marriage, they usually say things like this:
Don’t get married. Seriously. Just stay single forever.
There will be times you will wonder why you even married your spouse.
Don’t get married too young.
Just make sure you’re marrying the right person.
Marriage is hard work. Harder than you can possibly imagine.
It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
Despite how lovely the intentions of the “advice giver” may be, these pieces of “advice” are more annoying than helpful.
Because they provide almost ZERO information.
Gee, thanks! I hadn’t realized marriage would be harder than I can imagine!
Marriage IS hard work. But telling someone how hard marriage is does NOT help that person.
Telling someone WHY marriage is difficult, however, is extremely helpful.

And, now, I am going to tell you WHY.
