I am friends with a couple that almost divorced but, getting a puppy saved their marriage; the puppy help them share and love someone together. It was a spark that brought them back together;since, their children were both grown and living on campus at college. The wife even had the incentive after fracturing her hip to get herself a job to help her husband who is working two jobs and saving money for college for their children. Now, the couple is again loving each other
I hope that all that are able adopt a pet today at your local animal shelter.
