People have different convictions when it comes to getting married or living the single life with no commitment set by the church or by the state law. Others may view Marriage as a MUST before couples can be allowed to live together as part of their cultural creed. While some consider it as another set of worries to get engaged with.
So many opinions revolving about the holy matrimony. The question is, what does the Lord say about what Marriage really is?
Marriage is a sanctified intimate union between a man and woman in which the two becomes one physically. A commitment that nobody can break in the eyes of heaven. It’s how I personally based my definition regarding Marriage. No matter how the human law will define it, whatever amendments of the earthly constitution they may pass to break the union. I’ll stick to my faith’s teaching’s about it.
Today, marks our 4th wedding anniversary, one of the most memorable day with my husband. A celebration I love reminiscing again and again. How did I know I was ready to settle?
If you feel it’s the right time, then it must have been the right decision to finally tie the knot. There’s no formula as to when or what preparations you need for you to know when you’re ready. You can asses it yourself. I knew Mon was exactly the man I was looking for to be my spouse. I just felt it and everything spontaneously followed. I got married because I’m in LOVE. (Awww!)
They say love fades. Partly true! The emotions will always be there though it can be negatively affected by some marital concerns. But when you’re committed to your vow, you’ll strive hard to keep the love fire burning. It’s no longer a choice to shift feelings. Love in marriage isn’t like something you can trade back once you’ve lost the interest to your spouse.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Mark 10:9)
Getting married blessed me with a loyal companion for this lifetime. Through all the seasons in my life, I have someone to share those happiness and troubles in my journey. Someone who can accept all my weaknesses without judging my being irrational, sometimes.
To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part
As the purpose of Marriage is to reflect God’s divine love, it allowed me to draw closer to him. Mon and I continue to reflect our relationship based on His teachings by giving support and inspiring each one to do good. We are far from perfect, yes, I know that. We got so many flaws as humans deviating from His commandments. But those shortcomings can be corrected as we continue to lift both our souls following His Christ-like path.
Marry because of Love..
Marry because you’re committed to be the lifetime partner of your spouse…
Live the married life with God at the center of your relationship…
Happy 4th Wedding Anniversary. I love you ♥
