Some short thoughts from a variety of sources:
Most Americans marry just once, according to new Census data. The survey of three million households shows 76% of those who have ever been married have married only once.

Nearly 20% have been married twice, and 5 % have been married three or more times.

The Census also reported that the average U.S. marriage lasts 18.2 years.

Almighty God, You are so good. You have again helped me. No matter how many times I stumble and fall, You are always there waiting to help be back up. How wonderful is Your patience towards me, never letting me go. Today I will turn from my negative thoughts and focus on the amazing promises You have for me. In Jesus' name. Amen
