“I didn’t marry you because you were perfect. I didn’t even marry you because I loved you. I married you because you gave me a promise. That promise made up for your faults. And the promise I gave you made up for mine. Two imperfect people got married and it was the promise that made the marriage. And when our children were growing up, it wasn’t a house that protected them; and it wasn’t our love that protected them – it was that promise.”
~ Thornton Wilder, The Skin of Our Teeth
None of us married expecting failure. We expected to stand by one another for a lifetime. However, we were ill prepared for the challenge. Because of our own insecurities, we said and did things that hurt our spouses. We built a wall between us that now seems impossible to cross. We feel like giving up.
The good news is that it’s not too late not only to save your marriage, but to make it all you hoped it would be on the day you made your promise. We’re here to help.
May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
~ Proverbs 5:18
