What Does the Future Hold for William and Kate?

by | May 31, 2011

According to most people, Prince William and Kate Middleton, the future king and queen of England, are destined for a long and happy marriage. Even their astrology shows them to be compatible and their union, very encouraging.

They both are similar in the way they handle life\’s challenges. Also, they appear to have a solid foundation on which to build a marriage and didn\’t rush into anything. Theirs is the result of a long, nine-year, relationship that began as a friendship. Together, presumably, they have developed a connection that is both cherished and true.

William decided to wait until he was older to marry, possibly to avoid repeating the mistakes as his parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, made and to be completely certain he was making the right choice for the right reasons. This can enable the couple to grow together and form a true partnership while doing so.

The couple share modest, similar values and don\’t plan on living the expected, royal, lifestyle. They hope to be more hands-on and very philanthropic. This can help them through life\’s challenges.

The patience both have displayed throughout their long relationship, beginning as friendship, dating, a breakup and rekindling bodes well for their longevity.

Despite a nearly 40% divorce rate in the UK, there are several positive predictors already in place:

  • The bride\’s parents are still together, married for 30 years and going strong. The prince was deeply affected by his parents\’ divorce. Together, these may help keep their union strong.
  • Neither have children from previous relationships.
  • Both are highly educated. Kate will be the first woman to have graduated college before marrying a royal. Both Kate and William were students at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
  • They already own a home.
  • They have already had pre-marital counseling, because anyone who gets married in the Church of England gets marriage preparation from whoever is officiating at the service. The officiant will speak from his experience of marrying other couples as to what it means to enter into marriage, about commitment, life as a married couple and the sanctity of marriage.
  • They are both mature, not too young.

There are, however, a few things they should keep in mind:

  • Marriage is best when it is more a democracy than a monarchy. An equal partnership will have a better chance at success.
  • Try to keep personal issues private.
  • Attempt to maintain as normal a personal life as is possible.
  • Remain steadfast in your religious beliefs and practices.

Although the stakes are high, I think they\’ll have a long marriage just like the Queen and Prince Philip at 64 years! Let\’s wish them the best!
