“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” â€“ Genesis 2:24
How can a stranger tell if two people are married? When eight-year old Derrick was asked this question he stopped to think for a minute. Then he replied most seriously, “You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.”
Kids really have a way of making us laugh, reflect, and, yes. . . sometimes yell, don’t they? But young Derrick hit upon a very important fact: marriage can be tough and that’s true regardless of whether or not you have kids.
Finances, communication, intimacy, and sometimes-even kids can become sources of tension in your relationship with your spouse. Nevertheless, God’s intention for marriage is that it be a source of joy, encouragement, comfort, and grace that gives richness to life.
“Marriage is the state or condition of a community consisting of a master, a mistress and two slaves, making in all, two.” â€“ Ambrose Bierce
