We fall in love, get married, have children and raise a family. Over the years, love deepens and the bond strengthens but in some cases, the feeling of marital satisfaction waxes and wanes. Lasting love requires affection and respect. A great marriage is not just about what you have but what you do to make a relationship stronger, safer, more caring and committed.
Marriage is a home; a refuge against the outside storms. And like any house, it requires a strong, lasting foundation. Couples are expected to weather the storms together. Realize there are things you can do to ensure better times than worse in your marriage, to make riding out the storms smoother and easier. Believing that the good times will continue to roll on their own is setup for disappointment and disillusionment.
Marriage, like a beautiful garden, requires skill and constant attention. If tended to, it will thrive, but if neglected, it will wither and die. It takes work — for all parties!!!
The right one will pray, plan, prepare and build with you. The right one will listen to your dreams and dream with you. With the right one you are ‘you’, you don’t have be fake
Your marriage is unique to you and your spouse. No one should tell you how to live out your home. You have to figure it out yourself, aligning with God’s word; however you need the ‘YOU’ factor.
