"Do you ever worry? Or at least wonder?" That's what I asked her over our dinner together.
But my friend seemed surprised at my question. Not sure what I was exactly asking.
So I elaborated.
"Do you ever have any concerns about your marriage? You know, with everything that's been happening lately? All the bad news and marriages that appear to be falling apart everywhere? Infidelity. Irreconcilable differences. Distance and divorce.No matter where you look, it seems to be the same. Not merely documented in the news, but also seen in many families, dear friends, and even churches. So how does that affect you two?"
I took another bite of my roasted beet salad, while she thoughtfully considered my question.
