    I Want To Believe

    I am making this a goal.   This is highly necessary, as I am going to school to be a marriage counselor. Everyone always asks me why, at such a young and unmarried age, I already know I want to do this. I grew up in a small town, where everybody I knew...

    Marriage is a huge leap of faith!

    If more people took their vows seriously than there would be less cases of divorce. Anyone who's married know that it's not easy & a lot of work but it is what you put into it as it is a vow unto God that is more than just a piece of paper. I see too many people giving up on...

    I Think Marriage Is Outdated.

    In the days of my grandparents, Marriage was a beautiful thing. To the modern couple, marriage is a trainwreck waiting to happen. The divorce rate (according to the census bureau) was last logged at 50%. Flip a coin. Tails = divorce. Heads still means married. But the census...

    Marriage Can Be Beautiful

    Many people in my generation don't believe in marriage. They feel it's a piece of paper for tax benefits and for a long time I felt the exact same way. That was until I saw how beautiful it was to be vulnerable with another and to give of oneself with love.Marriage is more than...

    The Idea Of Getting Married Agrees With Me

    I don't believe you have to get married to have a good, lifelong relationship with someone.  I'm certainly not of the opinion that couples who consummate relationships outside the bounds of marriage are going to hell, either.  There are things far worse than that that...

    The Responsibility Of Marriage

    I read a question on EP recently, that asked - "How do I tell my husband I need to be submissive sexually", or something like that. It always surprises me when someone asks something like this. Why don't people discuss these things with their partners BEFORE they marry? Things...

    Marriage is at best misunderstood by most

    people. It is a point in life where the natural world and the supernatural world meet. It is something that is recognized by governments and religious organizations but it was not created by them. Consider the fact that during slavery in the United States, slaves married each...

    I believe a wedding is about dressing up

    and having the most beautiful day of your life. But, I believe marriage is where you should learn that growing, changing, helping, asking for help, communicating, exploring, discovering and loving can all happen at once. I don't believe any marriage is perfect, but they can be...

    I believe that couples will be happy

    if they keep their vows. I don't think I can be with a guy who makes up some excuse not to marry me because 'we don't need to get married'.

    I Love Him, So Of Course I Believe

    I believe that love is not just a feeling. It is a decision! I choose to love him even when he is rude or insensitive. I choose to love him even when he is angry for nothing. I choose to love him because if love is only a feeling, no marriage would survive. Choosing to love...

    Commitment

    I believe in marriage as a commitment. If and when I get married my marriage will be my priority - I will want to make sure my husband is happy, and that our relationship is strong. When the going gets tough I want us to remember our love and promise to each other and try and...

    Marriage There are two kinds of things in life,

    basically: logical, and emotional. Emotionally driven things tend to turn out badly, for me anyway. I’ve been in love 7 or more times, and divorced twice. Strong emotion is not sustainable. Successful acquisition of practical things – like deciding which vehicle to purchase...

    Despite Where Society Is Right Now

    It seems that marriage from a societal standpoint is no longer encouraged. We see fewer and fewer individuals, who are deciding to get married to their loved one. Part of this growing trend, can be attributed to the rise in divorce. Most statistics show, that the overall...
