Marriage…it’s a beautiful union. Then why is it so hard?
Each of us is created with a specific and unique DNA that is only used one time. No one else is exactly like you. And with that, comes different personalities, characteristics, and temperaments. Even our brains process different from others.
There is more…
Next, we have our backgrounds and the way we were brought up. Our beliefs, our morals, and values, our dreams and hopes. There is a chance our spouses’ culture is different from our own. In addition, you have those who grew up in a wealthy home and those whose families struggled. THEN… the final, and possibly the most challenging, is the difference between a male and a female. Oh yes… this alone can do us in.
Well, NO WONDER!
With all the differences we just talked about, it is no wonder that we struggle with our marriages. So many obstacles that are in our way can lead to an unhappy marriage, one that is broken or even hanging by a string.
So what do we do?
We are glad you asked. It is important to have tools and to know how to communicate, how to fight so as to work through the challenges that threaten marriages today.
