Marriage is taken too lightly by many in today’s times. As if it’s just a teenage love that can be left by the wayside when things begin to get rough or you just want something new, people are in and out of it just like that! People get married with the mind-set that if things are not going as planned and they become unhappy, they can just bounce. Then their children (if they had any) most often grow up believing the same things.
When you allow God (The Creator of marriage) to define what marriage is for you and adapt His truths regarding it, you will have a great shot at a successful marriage. Getting married for the wrong reasons to the wrong person is a sure enough sign disaster is ahead. Yet, when we set our hearts towards God and the things that concern Him, our choices can be unclouded and we can choose a mate that is best suited for us.
I’d also like to add that although we say “I do” to the right one, the right one can do a lot of wrong. For better or for worse means worse can come down the road. You should expect it, after all you will be marring a flawed human being. To expect only flowers and sweet love songs is setting yourself up to be thrown off course. Prepare for marriage like you are preparing for battle. Bring you heart, sexiness and lovey dovieness, but also bring your sword. Be educated, be equipped, be patient, be diligent, be READY!
Marriage is a commitment you make to God first.
Marriages should have boundaries, in and around it.
Marriage is not dating and shouldn’t be treated as such.
Marriage can and should change you for the good.
Marriages will go through many trails and hardships, don’t allow them to send you packing.
Marriage needs tending to like a garden, unlike a tree.
Marriage is a gift from God, it should be treated as such.
Keep Your Marriage Popping!
