14 Days to Finding Meaning in the Mundane: Marriage is Work

My husband and I have been married for 20 years.  My husband helps me around the house, he’s an involved father with our children, we love each other and are a happy couple.  People see this and they envy us, they think we have the “perfect” marriage.  They compare our marriage to their marriage and they just can’t understand why they don’t have what we have.  What they don’t see is roller coaster ride we took to get there.

Finding Meaning

Getting to 20 years wasn’t a walk in the park.  Our first 5 years of marriage were rough.  When we entered this marriage, we did it because we loved each other.  We didn’t worry about who would cook or clean, handle the finances etc.  Trying to identify who would handle certain responsibilities in our home was tiresome and on top we had our first child and that just added more stress to our home.  Throughout the years of our marriage, there were times when we lost our communication and the thought of divorce even crossed our minds.

God never said marriage would be easy.  If you’re looking for a perfect marriage, I hate to tell you that you will never find one.

Ecclesiastes 4:9  Two are better than one because they have a good return for their work.

Marriage is work and has so many fulfilling rewards if you are willing to work together.  If you are currently struggling in your marriage, be patient, seek prayer and trust that God will heal your home.
