“When the going gets tough, you don’t get going — you hang on.”  That’s former 90210 star Shannen Doherty’s take on marriage anyway.  According to People, Doherty refuses to give on marriage despite two failed marriages and one unsuccessful engagement.  However, the actress says she is no longer naïve when it comes to the hard work behind a marriage.  She explains, saying, “You have to go in with your eyes wide open and realize that it’s probably going to take a lot of work and maybe some couples’ therapy perhaps.”

How do you keep your faith in relationships after a break-up?

Cupid’s Advice:

A bad break-up can have anyone promising themselves that “this will be the last time.”  However, Cupid has an idea or two about regaining your faith in relationships:

1. Live and learn: Take each relationship’s end as a lesson for the future.  Walk away with a few pointers you didn’t have before in order to stop you from making the same mistake twice.

2. Disregard the lover, not the love: Love isn’t the one who has wronged you.  Blaming relationships for what you’re currently feeling is misplaced anger.  Remind yourself that love never fails; only lovers do.

3. It’s never too late: There is no deadline for finding “the one.”  Appreciate each relationship for the happiness it brings to your life, and keep an eye out for Cupid’s arrow.
