The tally amongst my own four children so far: Divorce because of domestic violence and gambling, Separation because of incompatibility; Divorce because their spouse turned out to be emotionally unstable; Separation because their spouse had a severe personality disorder, and refused to take the prescribed medicine; Separation because of money being used as a means of manipulative control, and because of unrealistic expectations; Separation because of apprehended violence, manipulation and gambling. To me, the rough road represented life with Christ but without Bob. I guess I was treating marriage like a two-legged stool (just Bob and I) and expecting it to stand up! Here are some issues I now know I should have considered or that I would have had to consider if I were to marry in this present era.
The good road represented life with Bob, (whom I could see and touch), but without having to put Christ first in my life. And speaking of the children, will your husband agree with your sending them to Sunday School, taking them to church, taking part in whatever rites your church practices; or will he say that children should not be brain-washed with religion, but should be allowed to wait until they are adult, and can then make up their own minds?
If you going through a time when youre not on speaking terms with God, how will you explain to your husband why you are down in the dumps, and dont feel like talking?
Because if you try to tell him, he wont be able to understand, because in 1 Corinthians the Bible tells us: Will there be any disagreement about the way you celebrate Christmas and Easter?
I had just picked up vibes from comments made about someone elses forth-coming marriage.
But Gods word about the unequal yoke is plain having once read it, I couldnt deny it.
Most likely he is also thinking he will change you or that your religious zeal will mellow after marriage.
