|THE MARRIAGE BOX
THE MARRIAGE BOX
Most people get married believing a myth; that marriage is a beautiful box
full of all the things they have longed for: companionship, romance, sexual
fulfillment, intimacy, friendship, laughter, financial security.
The truth is that marriage, at the start, is an empty box. You must put some things into it before you can take anything out of it.
There is no love in marriage; love is in people, and people put it into their marriage. There is no romance in marriage; people have to put it into their relationship.
A couple must discern what things work to improve their relationship and form
the habits of communicating, giving, sacrificing, sharing, loving, touching,
serving, and praising. In other words, keeping the box full. If you take
out more than you put in, the box will always be empty!
