A couple of weeks ago, at bible study, My husband (pastor Eric) and I had everyone sit in a circle. It was our way of making everyone feel part of what we were about to discuss; marriage. It seems, lately, that we are having more and more married couples complaining about their relationships. The problem seems to be, that too many couples have lost sight of how much work we are actually supposed to put into our marital relationships in order to make it the marriage that God intended.
Eric and I have been married for 27 years. We were both young when we married. I was 19 and he was 21. We started having children immediately and quickly realized, that our “feelings” for one another was not enough to get us through all the hardships we were going to endure. If it had not been for our desire to please God and our love for Him, we would not have come this far. I could pretty much guarantee that we would have divorced more than 20 years ago.
