HELP!! - My Perfect Wedding Partner has Turned into a Frog!

Have you ever wondered what happened to that “perfect for me” woman that walked down the aisle looking radiant, or that very handsome man standing at the end of the aisle waiting breathlessly for your arrival? Guess what - that person was camouflaged perfectly to “bag” their prey by making themselves look irresistible. I can say this because that’s what my wife and I did, thinking “ After we’re married I’ll change my spouse into the person that completely satisfies me.”  

The reality is, that the person you wake up to every morning and share the bathroom with is, in fact, the person you married. This reality is called marriage, and requires a lot of deference, forgiveness, acceptance, and stamina to survive. But before you throw in the towel in surrender to mediocrity in your marriage, read on.

In my marriage, that has survived and blossomed for almost 60 years, my wife and I went through some deep mud, hit some huge obstacles, and endured a lot of temptation. Yet today I can say without hesitation, that my wife and I are inseparable, deeply in love, and still feeling like two people that have been given the perfect gift of a mate that compliments and completes us  

So now you ask - “How did you transform your marriage from a battleground to the place where indeed the two of us are now one! The answer is simple - we didn’t, but God did!

So if you’re willing to continue reading this blog in the future, I will share God’s plan for marriage, his provision for continued development of intimacy, and His promise that, if you do marriage His way, you can’t fail. I need to warn you that a great marriage doesn’t come without discipline and perseverance, but the work and sacrifice are rewarded with a relationship that can’t be described or reasoned out, so let’s get started!
