A Growing Trend In Marriage - Part I


There is a growing trend towards marriage in this 21st century!  It is called not being up front!  Instead of taking the time to really get to know this person you say you want to spend the rest of your life with you just get married and hope everything will work itself out.  You even withhold pertinent information that might change your potential spouses mind!  Or you get married thinking I’ll just get a divorce if things don’t go as planned.

No wonder the divorce rate continues to climb!  The marriage vows for many are just words that are repeated!  Loyalty, transparency and commitment are secondary!  How is it that you think that you can make a lifetime decision on a mere impulsive whim?  You cannot change your spouse or potential spouse!  It is important that you share core values in order for the marriage to work!   For many marriage is really just an idea.  It is like test driving a car.   You just take it around the block and see if you like the drive.  But that is not what marriage is all about!
