THE BEAUTY OF MARRIAGE
Some people are afraid of marriage because they consider it to be a burden or bondage.God's blessing add no sorrow to it [Prov. 10 vs 22].God does not create problem for people,He relieves them of their burden.Jesus put it this way-come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden,and i will give you rest.Take My yoke on you and learn of Me,for I am meek and lowly in heart,and you shall find rest of your souls.For My yoke is easy,and My burden is light [Mathew 11 vs 28-3].
What sometimes make people to see marriage as a burden is the sacrifice that a successful marriage demands. But there is no love without sacrifice[1John 3 vs 16].Marriage brings the additional responsibility of always weighting individual interest against family interest unlike what obtained before marriage.For instance,the married woman may require the consent of the husband to go for an outing just as the husband would now need to factor family needs into his monthly budgets.Some old habits may need to be dropped for the sake of one's partner in order to promote peace in the house. Your opinions or position on issues may be questioned or challenged in a way you did not experience when you were single.
Notwithstanding the sacrifices that marriage demands,its benefits are innumerable marriage fulfills God's legitimate sexual need and makes room to share problems in a very intimate way.Moreover,marriage forms the basis of the family which is the primary unit of society.Where marriage flourishes it blesses both the couple and the world at large.
My we experience a beautiful marriage life.
