We just came through the season of March Madness with the NCAA basketball tournaments. I watched very little of any of the games but I am aware that many of the games were decided by one goal. In those situations my hunch is that each team kept playing to win down to the final buzzer.
How much more important is it in a marital separation with your future, your spouse’s future, and your children’s future on the line to keep playing all out to save your marriage all the way even through the court system. I sadly watch so many quit giving it their all to reconcile very early on in the whole separation/divorce process, all the while proclaiming that they really want to save their marriage.
