"Don't become so busy living that you miss the things which bring life"
^_^ I know I'm not talking to anyone who's married, but your parents probably are
and you'll be in relationships in the future, right? So this is still very
good to know.
The joy of Marriage. Rejoice for your spouse is a gift from God!
Regretfully marriage can be a war sometimes, with three main battles.
1. Fights over in-laws and family. A marriage is to be couple-centered, so I'm
sorry but even your old nuclear family has to take a back seat. It is written that
the man and woman are to leave their homes and to create a new one together.
2. Money. Need I say more?
3. Romance/Sex. There is a LOT in the Song of Solomon about just this thing. "How
beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes are doves. Beloved how
handsome you are, my lover! Oh, how charming! And our bed is verdant." Meaning their
bed is fruitful. There is a lot more, very flattering and romantic.
Sex is not a dirty word. It is a beautiful thing designed by God, but there is also
a designed time and place for it. God has a plan, the architect of
life itself is also the architect of marriage and sex.
The Key to Marriage
To invite Jesus into your home. Make it clear and essential. A rope of three chords
is not easily broken. You, your spouse, and God woven together. Intimacy isn't just
used to describe cuddling and being lovey-dovey or to make love. Intimacy also means
to pray together. To open up to God together.
I've said this before. Kids are a blessing but they are not to be the center of your
lives, and not your grand kids either. And If you don't fight hard for the
importance of your marriage or any relationship, no one else will. If kids are the
center then you are doing them a disservice. Giving them a very good chance to grow
up selfish and self centered, which will only make their lives and yours more
The most beautiful relationship is one of mutual submission. To love one another so
deeply that you look for each others needs and interests and seek not to put
yourselves beneath one another, as it is not what the other wishes for.
If you have questions or comments, please don't hesitate. ^_^
