Just wait... the honeymoon phase will end
Just wait... one day you won't be able to stand eachother
Just wait... all the kissing and hand holding won't be there
Just wait... this does not last
Just you wait... you will see
I really want to write a snippy come back to the comments of late. It is really hard not to be angry at someone saying these ugly things about my marriage.
My heart hurts just writing those things. I realize marriage does not come with out challenges. But geeze... how miserable are you to say these things? Or maybe your view of marriage is skewed....
I think that to make your marriage be something more than a miserable thing your stuck in, you need to make a CHOICE to make it better or how about never letting it get to the point where you can not stand each other?
Listen, J is not perfect and neither am I. One thing I can tell you we have almost been married for a decade. We are going on our 7th year. We are mindful of our marriage. God put us together, there is a purpose to marriage. It is to glorify God. It is to show just a little of how much God loves us.
Think about a marraige that is so broken you can not stand one another. Think about how many selfish steps you and your spouse took to get to that place.
Are all death sentences to a marriage.
I understand that there are difficulties, but being married for a little bit I think I have some insight into this marriage thing. These are just basic things listed here, but take an evaluation.
1. Where are you with God? Is he apart of it? We are human full of error to correct that we need the help of God. I realize my need for him, without Christ I nothing. He needs to be first. Only he can heal your marriage. And heal your broken places.
2. Look in the mirror: Take responsibility for your actions.What have your contributed to your problems in your marriage? Do you hold resentment and try to "get back" at your spouse? To make them hurt. Do you contribute by the problems I listed above?
3. Are you open? How is your communication with your spouse? Do you expect them to read your mind? Do/Can you communicate your feelings without the listed things above?
This is in no way a comprehensive list. But just a basic checklist.
So here is my rebutle for all those negative comments about my marraige
Just wait... J and I will always be on our honeymoon. Because frankly he is my beloved and I am his
Just wait... We will continue to love being with each other. We love to laugh and hang out. He is my best friend
Just wait... We will be kissing and holding hands until death and then in Heaven :)
Just wait... Our marriage is forever
Just YOU wait... You will see
