Here’s the bad news…many will end up broken hearted and divorced. On the day they stand before their friends and God, they are sure their lives will be wonderful, but the truth is LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH.
Dr. Gary Chapman wrote a book called “Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Got Married.” It’s a great book on the realities of life. What do you do when trouble comes your way and the warm fuzzy feelings start to cool? That’s when COMMITMENT comes in.
Life happens! Jobs are lost, children are sick, money is tight, and the list goes on and on. Many decide that’s not the kind of life the signed up for and jump ship. Then they go from relationship to relationship trying to find utopia only to find that place doesn’t exist.
Before you take that giant step, examine your commitment to this person. Can you hang with them through thick and thin because those “thin” times will happen? Can you hang with a chronic illness? What about when everything goes wrong?
Love Heart, marriage will have marvelous and miserable days. Check out Dr. Chapman’s website at www.garychapman.org for some valuable advice from a man that held his marriage together through some tough times. Gwen~
