The Bitter Half or the Better Half? – Balancing the Positive and Negative in Marriage

Human beings are not monogamous by nature (according to biologist David Barash and psychiatrist, Judith Lipton, co-authors of The Myth of Monogamy). “And they lived happily ever after”…so ends every fairy tale, but a marriage is not a fairy tale. Marriage is a sacred ‘bond.’ According to (Matthew 19:6) one of the commands from God was, “They are no longer two, but one. Therefore, what God has joined together, let no man separate.” Strive to protect the ‘core’ of marriage, invest and spend time, effort, and sacrifice, and the chances for (eventually) having a rock solid marriage are quite high.
