Thoughts on Marriage:

We human beings get so confused when it comes to love.  In a relationship, we start out finding all the things we have in common.  We fall in love with our sweetheart because they are just the “same” as us.  They like the same things, think the same way, value the same priorities, do the same activities.  After a while we can’t help but discover that we are different…but we are so surprised, even disappointed.  Were we looking for our clone?  Perhaps.  Our differences can bring shock and disappointment if we are expecting our spouse to be our identical twin.  If, however, we can see the richness of our spouse’s differences from us, how they can add to us, we can learn to welcome our differences and even cherish them.
