Marriage is washing his dirty laundry, sharing a bathroom, a toilet, a bed. It’s seeing your wife’s body change when she’s pregnant and giving birth.
Love goes through phases and stages, and you don’t always have that fluttery feeling, but that doesn’t mean that love’s not there.
My constant prayer is that our earthly marriage will end by death or by Jesus’ return, marriages end for so many reasons other than those two things.
Even if we’re practicing good habits regularly, it is easy to derail our relationship by succumbing to bad ones. The good news is there are solutions.
I have seen a similar pattern in healthy Christian marriages: they are intentional with relationship habits that anyone can apply.
