DEALING WITH THIRD PARTIES
“Too many cooks spoil the broth.”
– English Proverb
Marriage, although made in heaven, is assembled on earth. Therefore, for it to actually stand the test of time, the couple must set the desired goal and work together to achieve it. In a bid to do this, you’ll have to set boundaries for the benefit of your marriage. This is important because you both have different backgrounds and influences.
Marriage is a call to servanthood, friendship, and a lifetime commitment. We must remember that commitment can carry a relationship and keep it alive when the romantic feelings fade. We often wonder how a couple who were head over heels in love with each other can only a few years after speaking about divorce due to “irreconcilable differences.”
The fact remains that when we don’t understand the changes that happen in individual development, personal identity, and values, we tend to exhibit insecurity and in essence develop what people call “irreconcilable differences.” These are the differences that lead to crises in marriage and ultimately, divorce. Therefore, to enjoy the good fruits of marriage, we must nurture our marriages by watching out for militating factors that break homes in our world today.
In this course, we will be discussing the factors to watch out for to keep your future marriage strong and solid.
