The following are three thoughts on marriage that friends and mentors have shared with me. I’m intensely certain that nothing in life has ever made me more angry, frustrated or annoyed than my wife.
One day she expects me to stay emotionally engaged.However, I wish I’d had a bit more insight on the front end of our marriage to help me navigate it all.According to most research, more than 50 percent of people who say “I do” will not be sleeping in the same bed eight years from now.And though Scripture alludes to the fact that adultery and abuse may be reasons individuals might end a marriage, I’d be willing to bet that most challenges experienced in marriage are the result of unawareness.Most people—myself included—jump into marriage with suitcases full of misconceptions and bad theology, entirely unaware of the unique beauty and paradoxical intentions of marriage.The next, she's looking for me to validate the way that she feels.
The list goes on—but never ventures far from things she perfectly well deserves as a wife.
Unfortunately for her, deserving or not, her needs often compete with my self-focus.
When I decided I’d rather not live without her, I proceeded to ask her to marry me—that is, to officially invite someone who wasn’t me to be in my personal space for the rest of my life.
This “disruption” came suddenly and was disguised as a 5-foot-nothing Swedish-Filipino woman.
I quickly realized my basic goal in life, prior to getting married, was to simply remain undisturbed.
This decision introduced my most significant experiences and most challenging experiences—none of which I would trade for the world.
