So… Commitment is a major ingredient for a stable marriage. This is staying dedicated to someone long after the feeling under which you promised to do so, is gone. When we start a relationship and get married, those lovey-dovey or romantic feelings make us say some beautiful things. In fact, many of us make some heavy promises.
The truth is at the point when we say them, that’s really how we feel.
Then reality sets in! Perhaps challenges come, which put a strain on the marriage. Or that same man or woman you considered to be amazing begins to irritate you with their quirky little habits. The reasons are unique to each couple.
It has made some think, “What was I thinking when I made all those promises?” or “I married the wrong person.” Thankfully, some are mature enough to respectfully resolve differences, unfortunately, others have gone their separate ways.
Those promises we make are great and actually show the level of our intended commitment with our words but as many of us learn in marriage, it’s not just about saying it. Commitment requires us to prove it; it means we’ll love, we’ll forgive, we’ll compromise, we’ll overlook offences, etc particularly when we really don’t FEEL like it.
It means we don’t get to pack out and end the marriage because it’s different from what we expected. It means we are willing to do what it takes (relying on God’s help) as much as we can, to keep our homes standing. This is why single ladies and gentlemen should really understand what they are getting into before they say “I do.”
Please be willing to still do what you promised even when the feeling is not there. That can actually provoke the long-awaited change you desire in your home. Your commitment determines your experience and God is committed to our fulfilment in this great institution. But we MUST cooperate with Him. Be sure to seek godly counsel if you need it for your situation. Wishing you God’s best in your marriage and family life! Blessed weekend. Cheers…
