marriage is

Sabrina Thompson is a photographer with marriage on her mind and a mission to accomplish. According to recent statistics provided by the Census Bureau, the average length of a marriage in the United States is 8.8 years.  Thompson’s project, “Marriage Is…,” is a video and social media campaign aimed at bringing the positive images of marriage and love to the forefront and highlights couples who exemplify true love.

For inspiration Thompson looked at her parents 40 year marriage and gathered photos of relationships that have lasted longer than 8 years.

Below is the project, make sure you have a tissue in hand while watching.

    I especially enjoyed seeing the older couples. I love seeing young couples who are in a strong, loving, mature marriage because so many think that young people can’t make it, but there is something about an older couple (like the last one who have been together for 70 years, or older people who stay married until death parts them) that seems so extra special. They’ve seen it all, been through it all, and loved through it all.
