The magic isn’t in getting married, it’s in staying married

“We are a team”, I’ve heard that statement proudly proclaimed by married couples more than I care to say. Teams play games together, they work on projects at work together, they even tear down things together. Marriage makes you one (1). The bible says, “And the two become one flesh, so they are no longer two, but one flesh (Mark 10:8).

My husband and I watched a great movie called “Baggage claim”. it was a nice date night movie that had a great message about finding love. There was a line in the movie that I had to include because it was so profound. “The magic isn’t in getting married, it’s in staying married”, marriage is hard work at times, and too many couples don’t seem to be willing to put in these days. Be patient with one another, talk, talk, talk through issues, respect each other and love just as you would like to be loved. It helps you to see past the small things. So love deeply, because love covers a multitude of sin” (1 Peter 4:8).
