The Wedded Life And What It Requires
Marriage is the highest form of intimacy between a man and a woman and people getmarried when they think they found the right person to share that intimacy with. But even couples who seem to be so in love with each other at first end up in shaky or worse, broken marriages.This usually happens when both of the couple's eyes are opened to the reality of married life.
Nowadays, more and more marriages end up as failures. Couples just can't sort out their own differences and accept their partners for who they are, resulting in conflicts and eventually divorce.
One of the most common differences between couples is religion. Religion is a very sensitive topic and if not dealt with properly with an open mind, may result to debates and arguments inside the home. A husband just can't force his wife to believe what he believes in. And the same thing goes with the wife. She can't force her husband to come to church with her or attend a women's meeting and nag at him if he doesn't.
Another factor concerning broken marriages is problem in communication. Men tend to keep quiet when they are supposed to stand on their ground and speak up for their ladies. And women, struggling to take control of the relationship, nag their husbands incessantly.
Let's go to another one. Cheating. Nothing gives you the feeling of being stabbed in the back than by being betrayed by your husband or your wife. Most marriages end up as soon as one of both sides discover they are being cheated upon.
Every woman wants his knight in shining armor, and every man his damsel in distress. But even though couples sincerely desire to have a happy and successful marriage, they just can't avoid some of these negative things to happen in their life. So how can you get rid of these troubles? The answer is you can't.
Facing marital problems will be a lot easier if you have people around you who will support you and give you godly advices on how to keep your marriage. The best thing to do is to surround yourself with friends. Pour out your emotions to God and do not be afraid to say what you feel to get rid of any bitterness and heaviness in your heart. This way you will have the strength to love your spouse unconditionally.
