SUSTAINED MARRIAGE

And Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man” Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh (Genesis 2:23-24).

Remember that a successful marriage depends on two things: (1) finding the right person and (2) being the right person. Albert Einstein said “Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed”

More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse. The marriage principle stated here is based upon the dynamic of oneness yet distinction.

A man and wife can truly come together in a one-flesh relationship, yet they must be joined. It is a spiritual fact, but the benefits of that oneness are not appropriated by accident or by chance.

Adam recognized that though he and Eve were one, she was not the same as him. He understood that two different people were becoming one.  Whatever your partner does to make you happy should be valued. Never underestimate the value or effort of your partner. It gives a bad face-off to your relationship. Just make your partner feel important and special, and you would be sailing on the ship of a happy marriage all your life!!

1 Peter 3:7 tells husbands to recognize that they are one with someone different, someone whom they must understand: Likewise you husbands dwell with them with understanding, giving honour to the wife, as to the weaker vessel.

Finally, You have to understand that every person has a limit of tolerance. Once you push the person beyond that level, trouble occurs. Don't keep nagging your partner to do things the way you like to. Just because you are married to them does not mean they can't think or do things their way. Just say what you have in mind and wait for your partner to respond. You will be surprised to see the results.

Respect your partner's feelings and you will have much more years of happiness in your life.
