HOW TO COMMIT TO EACH OTHER'S NEEDS


Couple

Couples marry for the strangest reasons. What keeps them married is when basic emotional and physical needs are met willingly and unconditionally. When these needs are not met the rewards of marriage are outweighed by frustrations, neglects, rejection and conflict. The result is eroded trust and loss of intimacy.

Remember that day when you fell head over heels in love with your PARTNER?Remember when nobody could say or do anything of or about your PARTNER?Remember when your PARTNER could do nothing wrong in your eyes? You were so blinded by your love for him/her that nothing else mattered. Far too often we complain my PARTNER has changed. Far too often we complain my PARTNER don't love me. Far too often the wrongs we overlooked in the past has always been there but have become evident of late. When last did we look in the mirror and realize, but I have changed, I have become a monster, I have lost interest.

We are failing our marriages because we have stopped caring about ourselves, our spouses and our marriage. Marriage will always remain constant and will never change, it is us that want to "reinvent the wheel".

Good marriage partners are made and not born - meaning that we constantly have to work at our marriage and ourselves as individuals.

How often did we experienced the following: I had an ideal, it became an ordeal and now I want a new deal? Since when did marriage become an ‘I thing’ is it not a ‘we thing’?How often have we used but seldom understood that word "love"

If love in marriage means anything it must involve caring for another human being deeply, by putting aside self-interest in favor of the spouse’s interests. When this caring is neglected trust breaks down and the foundation of the relationship crack. Trust is essential in order to build  any relationship. 

Trust develops as partners prove trustworthy. Over a period of time each partner learns that the risk of loving, selflessly caring for, and sharing oneself vulnerably with the other will be met with respect, appreciation and unconditional acceptance.

LOVE IS NOT A FEELING BUT AN ACTION - I Corinthians 13.
Be Blessed!!!
