Romantic love is the most intensely blissful emotion our heavenly Father has given us. When we are cherished and adored by our new husband, the man we’d dreamed about since childhood, we soar in giddy happiness and flutter about our tasks with a silly grin.
Nothing can give us more pleasure than to be in love.
But how soon we fall from the heights of untested love the moment our husband finds fault with us or is unkind! The farthest desert isle is not far enough away to escape the sadness and betrayal that settles upon our heart.
Coming off the high of marital bliss, most of us are unprepared for the reality of how men mentally function and verbally express themselves.
We haven’t a clue of the self-sacrifice required of godly love.
We’re just plain shocked to discover marriage wasn’t what we thought it was.
Yes, the state of being married is a wake-up call for husbands and wives alike. We deeply affect each other emotionally, mentally, physically, and most importantly, spiritually, more than we know. . .
