My wife, Susan and I have been married for 22 years. I’ve learned so much from her and with her during our life together.
Here are seven truths I’ve learned about marriage:
Truth No. 1. Marriage is not just about two people; it’s about two people becoming one flesh.
Truth No. 2. Marriage is not just “for better,” it’s also “for worse.”
Truth No. 3. Marriage is not always a stroll in the park; it’s a front-line battle in the world.
Truth No. 4. Marriage is not a 50-50 partnership, it’s a 100 percent-100 percent give-it-all-you’ve-got relationship.
Truth No. 5. Marriage is not just about happiness; it’s about holiness.
Truth No. 6. Marriage is not about getting from your spouse, it’s about giving to your spouse.
Truth No. 7. Marriage is not a quick sprint; it’s a lifetime marathon.
