Marital Thought of The Day #1
I wrote this on my blackberry while sitting in the Emergency room with my wife after she had another migraine attack. I was reflecting on how in times of stress and desperation the daily marital complaints/issues become insignificant. Because I am a very scientifically minded person I felt I would express how I intellectually and emotionally felt about Marriage.
Marital Thought of The Day - I
Sometimes marriage is bigger than the number 2.
Sometimes it is an exponential quotient of sum of the parts.
Life’s most complex mathematical equations are pursued, theorized, and
reveled not simply for the solution; but for the journey.
The question then remains not only are we capable of reaching a logical conclusion, but are we strong enough to weather the illogical persistence required.
When we are attracted to our spouse, we crave the adrenaline rush from the anticipation of emotional, sensual, and sexual sustenance. Over time,like any prescription or non prescription drug, we develop a tolerance. We crave more and more until the tolerance has consumed us and frustration builds. Feeling arid and suffering from withdrawals we seek out alternative treatments.
Ironically just as with any medication designed to treat issues, they rarely provide a cure. They patch and fix. It is not until we address the root cause within thru examination and occasionally direct surgical intervention that we can be satisfied and content.
We ALL fight it, but God always has a way of turning focus back to ourselves no matter how hard we try to seek out external remedies for internal imbalances.
