S4 EP9: Revolutionizing The ‘Happily Ever After’

HER Playbook Podcast

Apr 21 2022 • 29 mins

Think of the happy ending in a storybook, where the prince and princess get married and live happily ever after. That is the concept that we have grown up with. But what if it didn’t always have to be like that? The ‘happily ever after’ concept is a common theme in marriage. It is the idea of a perfect marriage that will last forever. However, it is not always easy. Some people find themselves in a marriage that they are unhappy with, and some opt to end their marriage because of incompatibility.

In this episode, Kristel shares her experience in marriage and what a revolutionized happily ever after in marriage looks like. Additionally, Kristel shares her divorce story and what she has learned from it. Marriage is not a one-time event, but rather it is an ongoing commitment that requires work and effort to sustain. It requires you to continually learn about your partner as you also improve yourself. Moreover, relationships are not built on love; they are built on choice because everyday tough choices must be made for that relationship to last.
