Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Marriage

Marriage isn't an easy thing as I always thought at first but through interaction with people who have succeeded in making their marriages work. I have learnt to see a better future in my marriage no matter what happens. I remember in March when my husband and I had issues in our marriage. Barely four months after we got married and yet our marriage was like trying run up at steepy hill. Thanks to our wedding best man and woman who had alot of experiencing in marriage issues given that they were twelve years in marriage and were marriage guiders and counsellors. They effectively guided us on understanding one another language given that we were not born the same. Everyone of us had different abilities and so we needed to know and understand one anothers language. They counselling was very significant because it helped bring our marriage back on track and today am happy that we are peaceful.
