I can't answer for everyone, but I crave the intimacy of marriage. I've been told that what I want can be found outside of marriage, but I've found that, two divorces later, I still crave the security and intimacy that a great marriage can have.
As a little girl I read a scripture that sent me on the search for a man who would, or could, or had the desire to love me as Christ loved the church and gave itself up for it. I believe that marriage at its very best - is the ultimate high!
Certainly there are problems in all relationships, but there are those that are truly specific to marriage. I, for, one do not mind dealing with those problems. Communication, honesty and transparency can help to alleviate the frequency and seriousness of these problems.
I crave the little things in marriage. I crave the arms to hold me in the middle of the night, I crave the spiritual connection.
I crave what I truly believe I can only find in marriage - a man who will give himself up for me.
