A friend of mine shared this very interesting article about marriage with me. I just wanted to share with you all as well. All of it was nice to read, but hIere is a part that caught my attention:
“…I once read a book that alluded to the idea that marriage is the fire of life—that somehow it’s designed to refine all our dysfunction and spur us into progressive wholeness. In this light, contrary to popular opinion, the goal of marriage is not happiness. And although happiness is often a very real byproduct of a healthy relationship, marriage has a far more significant purpose in sight. It is designed to pull dysfunction to the surface of our lives, set it on fire and help us grow.
When we’re willing to see it this way, then the points of friction in our marriages quickly become gifts that consistently invite us into a more whole and fulfilling experience of life. “

Thanks for sharing! None of it was brand new to me, I’ve heard similar things before but I think you can never read or think about it enough. And I def needed to hear all that again right now. I agree with all of the above! 🙂

That’s fascinating. I’ve been hearing a lot lately about how much more elusive happiness can be if we make that our primary goal. This kind of reminds me of that.

Great article. Have you read the Guniea Pig Diaries? He spends an entire month doing everything he wife says, the way she wants him too. End result–he was happier. Great book!

I absolutely love the article…I am older and have learned this quite a few years ago. My FI and I decided that we would put each other second only to God and I can honestly say it changed the dynamics of our relationship. We both stopped acting stubborn and selfish.
We are extremely close now, we know how important we are to each other, and because we made each other a priority it makes us so aware of the other person. We think about each constantly and that conscious thinking makes our behavior and actions a priority to each other.
We changed each others behavior because he/she doesnt like when I act a certain way and I dont want to make him/her feel bad.
I AM GLAD HE PUBLISHED HIS ARTICLE IT WILL HELP COUPLES TO FOCUS AND REMEMBER WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT? EACH OTHER
