Sometime last year, the Lord stirred me about the institution of marriage. Since Harold and I just celebrated our 47th year of marriage … I thought this might be a good time to share.
Now understand this, I’m not sharing because I think we have a perfect marriage because there is no such thing as a perfect marriage.
As a matter of fact, Harold and I have often been asked to write a book on marriage. But, the longer I live the less I think that I know on the subject.
What works for one couple may not work for another.
That doesn’t mean there are not obvious foundational aspects that all marriages need like love and respect. But those are obvious.
However, there are probably just as many myths about marriage as there are foundations … so I decided to address some of those instead.
Myth 1 You will just naturally get along if you are meant to be together
Even if you know God put you together with your spouse…marriage is and always will be an ongoing effort.
Saying all that … there are certain things that can help a marriage last.
