There probably aren't many people who haven't heard the words "marriages take a lot of work." This is a good thing to be aware of prior to making a marital commitment.

When was the last time you heard a politician or company leader say, "I apologize; I didn't keep the promise I made to you." Instead, they (and we) offer a litany of reasons why the result didn't happen and it always involves how other people or circumstances got in the way.
