The institution of marriage is a beautiful one. However, people venture into it for the wrongest reasons; thus many marriages fail because of the following:
A. You chose to marry for the wrong reasons.
You decide that the things that matter do not really matter. So you chose other matters that cannot even stand the test of time. You decide to marry her because she is extremely beautiful and looks good on your arm. You however forget she is “Human”, and very Susceptible to change.
B. You decide to walk the straight line instead of building a triangle. You base all your strength and support system on you and your spouse and you remove the place of God. The straight line becomes shorter and shorter until you are at each other’s throat.
C. You chose to dream instead of visualizing your marriage. You hold strongly to your dream as a child to become the King Kong of your home. Providing,Sheltering and feeding your family was easy in your dreams. You however fail to visualize the hard times that may follow and the days you will need her to take the wheels.
D. You said it would. Have’nt you read? The power of life and death is in your tongue. Each day you wake up,you look at your spouse,think in your heart and say it out loud “This cant work,you can’t afford me”,”you aren’t in my class”. Instead of him becoming better,he only grows worse. After all, His wife has said “This cant work”.
E. You give yourself options. “If it doesn’t work,i’m outta here”. So every time arguments ensue or the days are unromantic and dry or the in-laws come seeking and intruding; You call up your lawyer and tell him “GET ME OUT OF HERE,I’M DONE.”
May YOUR MARRIAGE WORK.
Have a terrific Week.
