Love & marriage

Today I rented to a young lady who has decided she does not want to be married any longer to her husband of two years. Not because she hates him, or that he's abused her, or had an affair, she actually likes him. She just doesn't want to be married to him.. We are friends with her husband, and I told him I was very disappointed in this outcome and his response was "that's life Tracy."
Josh said I don't get it, if I was going to leave Abby I would at least have to think that I couldn't stand her... Today people think marriage is easy to get rid of, I think that they think can start over and its no big deal.. That haven't realized that marriage is hard work, it can be fun, it can be very rewarding, it can be loving, but there are times when you are in it for the commitment and that alone sometime. But after the dark has passed and you see light at the end of the tunnel you realize that God meant for us to work it out.  Our family are fighters, we will fight it out before we give in to it. But as I also know both parties need to be ready to fight it out, to do whatever it takes to make it work and many would rather walk away than get in the trenches and get dirty. I tell me kids, marriage is what you make of it.. If you put effort, time, patience, love and most of all the commitment you vowed before God, you can make it work but like I said it has to be both of you...I am a little sad because I know the fellow is heart broken even though he won't admit it and I keep hoping she will change her mind.
The meanness inside of me wanted to tell her no to renting and get her butt back home and make this work, but if you can believe it I held my tongue...
