When You Marry Someone Who Does Not Understand Love! - Part 1

5 years ago

Marriage is for an emotionally mature man and woman who desire to grow  together with a spouse as a life partner!    The age in which one  embarks upon marriage maturity varies greatly!   You can be young and  ready for marriage!  You can also be older and still not be ready for  marriage!   Marriage is about working together to build the ultimate  partnership! It is the ultimate relationship of "oneness!" Marriage is about  growing and learning how to love!

 Love is one of the most misunderstood emotions, feelings and or state of  being!  Love does not always feel good nor does it mean that things will  always go well!  At times you will have to say and do some things that may  not be well received by one another because you love them. Yes, at times you  will have to chastise one another!   When you love one another you  should want what is best for the marriage! Love is encouraging healthy  boundaries and sharing transparently to build an intimate partnership!   Love   encompasses being disciplined and making sacrifices!  When  you truly  Love someone you love them for who they are!    According to the Word of God, “Love is patient, Love is kind!”

Marriage is wonderful but at times it can be difficult!   You are  two different individuals who have agreed to learn how  to grow  together as you share life!  At times you will clash!  This is why you  want to marry someone who will be there for you through the thick and thin!  Someone to weather the storms of life with you as well as celebrate the good  times!  Someone who loves you for you and not for what you do, or for what  you have, or what you can do for them!    Actually if either  of these is the case it is not really love at all!  It is what I have come  to call “intoxicating affections” it doesn’t last!  It  merely mimics true love.  Marriage should consist of mutual respect!
