tonight in the car on the way to the house party, my husband looked over at me and said, "one day i want to do marriage conferences with you on how to have a happy, healthy marriage." i've said before how lucky i feel to have a man like lorin to share my life with, but in that moment, i was his all over again. he and i have been blessed with an amazing relationship, which did not come easily. there have been so many obstacles that stood in our way, and by no means would we ever have been able to get through without the strength we receive from God. i saw the cover of a magazine today that had 3 pictures on it. in one corner was jennifer aniston - will be legally divorced in october from brad pitt. in the center was renee zellweger - having her four month marriage to kenny chesney annulled. on the bottom was tori spelling - also getting divorced after a $1 million wedding. i don't know all the reasons these marriages failed, but i can guarantee you one: God was not involved. God created marriage. He knows more about it than anyone. wouldn't you want his input on the topic? stars seem to get married as often as most people eat food. do they even know what it means to be married? marriage has become so demoralized because of our society and with what has become acceptable. my parents got divorced when i was 9 years old. i learned so much from their mistakes, but it seems like more and more people are learning that if it gets to difficult, you can just bail. whatever happened to marriage being a lifelong commitment? if you aren't willing or ready to work and fight for your marriage till the day you die, i suggest you take some of matt's advice.
geez...that's like the 4th post in a row i've referenced matt!
