So, why did I start this blog? Well I wanted to share with you all my thoughts on married life because I can honestly say that marriage is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I fully intend to fight like heck if need be to keep it maintain this opinion for the rest of my life. I have been blessed to have an impression of marriage that most people don’t have (and if they did the divorce rate wouldn’t be so high in the U.S.). A lot of my unmarried friends are continually falling into this conditioned way of thinking that marriage is somehow a very stressful, boring, sexless beast full of complacency. I will admit, a lot of marriages do turn into all of those things but my personal opinion is, “Marriage is what you make it!” Without getting too mushy I will say that I respect my husband and love him more than anything. It is that respect and love that makes me sure that I am doing what I can to make my marriage the best it can be (with The Hubs’ help of course, because it takes two!!!). My impression of marriage thus far is that it is exciting, sexy and very scary. Marriage take a lot of work and you have to be committed to keeping the fire burning within.
Why does this blog’s appearance or look seem like I’ll be talking about science when its really a blog about marriage? In terms of the theme of this blog you see a couple doing a science experiment together. I wanted to used this type of theme as a means of getting my point of across regarding the most important thing that husbands and wives bring to the table in marriage, love and respect. The wife is pouring respect and the man is pouring love in to a flask that represents their marriage. Essentially the Word of God says wives are to respect their husbands and husbands are to love their wives (Ephesians 5:22 and 5:25). When we as a couple are living our lives so that we can try our best to be in line with what the Word of God says we can so to speak clone “til death do us part” marriages. This means when we exhibit the biblical qualities of husband and wife we are shining examples of God’s love and service. We can therefore influence others by the way we live our own lives and essentially teach them how to have marriages that stand the test of time and pass that lesson down from generation to generation essentially making “clones” of beautiful marriages. Now I don’t mean “clone” in the literal sense that all of our marriage should operate exactly the same and be identical to one another. What I am saying though is that as often as I can I will try to share with you some fundamental principles within marriage that we should try to imitate, copy and strive toward.
