My eldest son came to visit this afternoon and we started talking about marriage and life
That turned to the differences he has with his wife, who when he first met was a completely different woman than she is now.
When they first got together she was interested in things he was interested in and now…..she isn’t interested in anything he likes and more importantly, she has become very concerned with living a life for God, and my son doesn’t understand what changed.
She has told him nothing has changed, that she has always loved God.
My son has told me more than once that had she acted this way when he met her or dated her, he never would have married her.
She is very critical of everything he does.
Brian likes to drink, she hates that he drinks.
She has gone so far to tell him, that she will be in Heaven one day while he will be in hell.
My son is frustrated beyond words and as usual I can’t find the words to comfort him or express how important God is and how one day he will need God.
But as usual I failed miserably.
Marriage is a lot of hard work……Marriage isn’t always fun….But marriage is a commitment…….a decision made every day to make it work……
God is so very important to life, for marriage.
Unfortunately I am married to a man who doesn’t believe in God, and while it isn’t a deal breaker for us, I can see how it could be for some one else.
