There are many trials in life
That test the strength of an individual. There are athletic competitions to test one’s sporting courage. There are tests that measure the academic ability of an individual. Then there are business tests that test the worthiness and business acumen of those wanting to be in business.
All of these trials test individuals. They are designed to measure one person’s ability, their strength, knowledge, judgment and courage. They must take those tests alone.
You Are Not Alone
While marriage brings a lot of trials to the participants in marriage, those involved are not alone. You have someone at your side going through the exact same thing. Two people working together can meet the tests and trials that marriage brings.
Marriage is not for the weak
The trials and tests that marriage brings to the participants separate the men from the boys. They expose the flaws and weaknesses in a union. Those trials also expose the character and integrity of those involved in marriage.
Are the participants strong enough, dedicated and committed enough to work their way through the problems and have a successful marriage. Or is their union too weak to survive?
Marriage is not for the weekend warriors. It is not for those who want to play games and it is not for those who are not committed to their mates.
Marriage is for those who are strong
It takes great strength to handle a marriage. It also takes a lot of courage. It is not easy to be committed to just one person. Marriage is for those people who can handle the trials and tests together, without giving up on the other person.
It takes a special breed of person to get and remain married. The question is are you that special breed of person who can love, cherish, honor and work with your mate till death finally separates you two?
Marriage is special
Far too many people do not see marriage as it is. Marriage takes work and it cannot survive without both parties being on the same page. It takes unity to make marriage work.
Being married is like writing a love story. It is your story and yours alone. You get to write it any way you want. But to make that love story have a successful ending, you need to be brave, strong and committed.
Marriage is the taking of two individual lives and molding them into one powerful unit. The participants need to be courageous to handle all the tests that are sent their way.
A beautiful story
Being married is a beautiful story written by those who have the strength to survive and thrive. It is about love, commitment and dedication. It leaves a long-lasting testament to others that marriage can be something wonderful if handled correctly.
Marriage is wonderful because it takes two. No other activity on life can compete when a marriage is done right. It is a beautiful sight to behold.
