Love takes work, time and a whole lot of patience. They never tell you about that part. That should really be added to the fairytales.

Every love story should have a strong epilogue written in, and in each epilogue is where we should be learning about the pitfalls, mistakes and all out war concerning relations that proceed... "I Do."

Single people need warnings about certain behaviors to watch out for, from our partners and ourselves. Marriage isn't easy, but it can last forever with enough effort.

We all want a happy marriage. We are feed the "happily ever after" story since we were old enough to sit in front of a Disney movie.

What those movies didn't tell us was what happens after the wedding day. How did they actually make it to "ever after?"

The World Population Review took a look at the divorce rates:

"About 90% of people in Western cultures marry by age 50."
"In the United States, about 50% of married couples divorce, the sixth-highest divorce rate in the world."

So, what are we doing wrong? Well, there are a lot of factors that go into divorce. Some factors that can end a marriage include infidelity, lack of commitment, or arguing. Most people blaimed their partners before blaiming themselves for the failed relationship.

It's critical to take a hard look at the foundation of the relationship, so we went to Ask Reddit to see what is working for people.

Love is hard work. The fairytales in film, tv, literature and music have been lying to us. There is no happily ever after. After the credits roll life happens and then the love story gets real. I'm being bitter and macabre. Love is also a very beautiful thing. But love is also deeply fragile and it doesn't take much to tarnish and destroy it.

We try to do the best we can but there is a lot more to be aware of. Love tends to be gone before we realize we could've saved it. So listen and maybe you'll save your fairytale.

Redditor u/EntrepreneurAlone118 wanted to discuss all the ways love can sour quickly or slowly, by asking:
