I really hope that the people that feel this way (one in particular…) get their happy back. I pray that they find the strength to work through the problems they have with their spouse (or other significant other); that they find a way to stop regretting the promise they made on a summer day years ago. That they just find happy.
I’m tempted to say even if that means getting divorced if they’re married… But that’s where my values start getting mixed up. God wants us to be happy, but He also wants us to respect our promises. What are you supposed to do when you’ve tried all you can to stick to a promise and yet it just makes life all around sad and depressed and the two don’t even seem to be friends anymore? You should go your separate ways and try to find happy, right? It’s all terribly confusing. Maybe they should just start to “undo it” and maybe they’ll figure out how to fix everything in the process, and before it gets to the completely undone stage.
