People always say that love is one of the best feelings in the world, especially when it is reciprocated. Well, taking a cue from Queen Elizabeth II, everyone can agree that he was surrounded by love for decades.
Love from her father, mother, her children and grandchildren and love from the love of her life, Prince Philip.
His recent demise is still a shock to many, but in celebration of love, fans have decided to be fixated on the good times only. There’s a lot to learn from this couple’s relationship and if you keep reading below, Kimberly Holmes shared some insight.
What Is Love?
In the celebrity world today, divorces and breakups happen in a flash, that fans begin to ask themselves; where did all the love go?
While love may not be the ultimate reason people stay together, it’s what brought them together in the first place, so it’s worth it.
A few days ago, a promising couple, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, confirmed that they were splitting up. They also said in a joint statement that they made the decision to remain friends and keep their kids close.
This is further sealing the notion that in the present era, divorces and split ups are the other of the day. But not in the previous era, during The Queen’s time.
Never Breaking, Never Ending
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Harry have been married for over 70 years and in 2020, they celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary with their grandkids.
They first met at a very young age and took an interest in one another. The couple went through a great deal, especially after the death of the Queen’s father.
His responsibilities as King automatically fell on her, and even when the going got tough, Prince Philip remained by her side to see her through it all.
The day she wore the crown, he swore to protect and serve her for the rest of his life, and that’s exactly what he did. This pair may not have much to teach the new generation, but one thing is clear about their relationship, it’s was a sacrifice that paid off.
A Point Of View
One of the main reasons why couples in the US today, decide to walk out of their relationship, is because they have grown apart.
Sometimes, infidelity can play a huge role, but we’ve heard of famous couples who go back together, after one or both partners cheated on each other.
Growing apart can entail not speaking to each other, which then leads to ‘lack of commitment’ and finally consistent arguing.
Nevertheless, these marital difficulties can be repaired when spouses deliberately change their behaviors and perspectives about situations, to help one another.
What Does The Queen’s Marriage Teach?
One of the main lessons to be taken from the Queen’s marriage that has last all these decades, is that instead of taking the short route to end a marriage, go for the long haul.
The long haul pursues decisions that can restore a marriage completely, either by engaging in exercises or speaking to anyone who can help.
Another lesson that can be learned is that marriages will always face struggles, but the decision to always respect and love one another, even in bad times, will go a long way.
During his life time, Prince Philip had these attribute and it helped him stay with the love of his life until his final breath.
