marriages aren't made for heaven!
Yet again Sam in the City has some things to say on relationships and marriage. This makes me sad, I can hardly believe this is what some people think, but why am I surprised?
It's everywhere, all around us.
Marriages aren't made for heaven!
I believe that here on earth God has given us the gift of marriage and when we get married, it isn't just "for as long as we continue to love each other", "for as long as our love shall last" or "until our time together is over". Grrrr.
I do understand that some marriages can be complicated and that sometimes things happen which are out of your control, but God does intend it to be 'til death do us part'. It isn't just for Christmas it is for life, or at least until Jesus returns. Marriage isn't always a walk in the park, it is hard work (with my many months (10 mths) experience) I should know. It's not only God who tells us what is best when it comes to marriage, statistics have also proven that people who are married are more likely to stay together than those in a defacto relationship.
Marriage is a gift from God, not to be entered into lightly, it is for life. It's hard at times but an absolute joy at times too.
