More Marriage Myths
- “If he/she really loved me, they would know what I want!”
(Communication is a key ingredient in any relationship.)
- The quality of time we spend together as a family is more important than the quantity of time we spend together as a couple.
(Family time is great, but couple time is needed too. Kids are not the #1 priority in a marriage, the couple is)
- Having a baby will bring us closer together.
(If you can’t get along as a couple, the stresses of raising a child will make things way more difficult)
- Times of crisis make a marriage stronger.
(Crises will occur, but they primarily expose the strength of the marriage)
- My personal happiness is the most important thing in life.
(A Christian needs to remove “I, my & me” from their vocabulary. Following Christ and serving your mate should be your primary concerns.)
We all need to operate under these principles as husbands and wives (and in so many other relationships). Your motivation to do anything should be rooted in love.
