I had an interesting talk with a friend of mine.
She was deeply saddened by a number of recent divorces among her friends. Most of these friends were Christians and most divorces were about “incompatibility” or “not being in love anymore.” She was frustrated over why they didn’t work to fix their marriages and upset about the fallout for their children and friends.
… and she has reason to feel that way.
She has courageously worked to build her marriage. She has dealt with her stuff and offered grace to her husband. She has sown faithfulness and integrity into her marriage. The fruit of that is amazing and sweet.
I do understand that not all marriages can be saved. I know first hand about things like ongoing infidelity and abuse. I just wanted to remind us all that there are consequences for the choices we make and we need to take marriage seriously.
Make good choices. Fight for your marriage. Invest in your marriage. Yes, that can be quite expensive in a personal sense, but the benefits far outweigh the cost.
When we fight for our marriages we honor God, we honor each other and we honor our friends and future generations.
No one can go back and change how it started but a new future for any marriage can begin the moment one person begins to invest in it. Fawn Weaver
