A recent New York Times article titled “You May Want to Marry My Husband” went viral. It was a dying woman’s letter to her husband’s future wife. She described how the little things count in building an unbreakable partnership.
My heart broke as I thought about this woman’s battle with terminal cancer and that she had to leave her loved ones behind. And at the same time, I was completely inspired. It is one of the most admiring takes on love I have read in a long time. It is a lesson on loving greatly and building an unbreakable partnership.
Secrets of long-lasting happy marriages do exist and one of them, backed by research, is that the little things count. It’s the ‘little things’ you do for one another and with one another, behind the scenes, that make an unbreakable partnership.
