The keys to a successful marriage: Be faithful, have great s-ex and do the dishes.
So says a new survey of Americans, who have elevated helping with household chores to the level of fundamental requirement in a good relationship. Men and women shared similar views on the issue of helping around the house.
Doin the dishes eh?..Hmmmmmm.
We know that a good marriage doesn’t magically evolve out of a marriage ceremony.
A strong dose of knowledge, commitment, love and sacrifice always seems to facilitate closeness.
Couples who bring into play God–given truths instead of just following human instinct, which tends to be selfish in nature, tend to find long lasting happiness.
According to the Bible, Marriage is to honored and protected.
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
Of course, it never hurts to bring a few “social skills” into the relationship eh.
Politeness, a bit of humility, (yea, even for you macho bravado dudes..heh) sincerity, sacrifice, empathy, concern, purity, devotion, hearts, flowers and chocolate go a longggggggg way. Heh.
Secularism and PCism has succeeded in destroying the cultural roots of our lives that preserved our fundamental social behavior. Cursing, porn-ography being mainstreamed and normalized, not to mention scantily clad women everywhere, even in the workplace, do harm to the sanctity of marital unions.
The only type of “intimacy” pop culture pushes is the pseudo-closeness people get from physical intimacy with someone they oftentimes hardly know.
True and honorable physical intimacy is based upon being intimate with your husband or wife’s heart.
What say y’all friends…what does make a good marriage?
