“How do you stay married in this day? Everyone says it’s hard. Isn’t it hard?” the waiter asked.
We looked at eachother. No…it’s not hard to be married. It’s been good.
We grew up together.
We’ve wondered over the years why we have the relationship we do…
Honestly…we both want the same thing.
Sure, there have been struggles, terrible struggles…life is hard.
We’ve experienced the lowest of lows, but the love is steadfast.
We want the same thing.
We want to live for God.
In living for God, we serve one another.
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body. FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband. ~Ephesians 5:21-33
