I wanted to start a blog about marriage mostly because I love my wife and I love being married to her. I can’t imagine another life. We love our life together. We complete each other and we feel that us two have become “won.”
That is not to say that we have a perfect marriage. I think that concept is impossible when you consider that none of us are perfect and two imperfect people cannot a perfect marriage make. In addition to our imperfections, the most striking aspect about our life is that we both come from broken marriages. So how is it possible that two people with such a past have been able to form such a happy union?
Well, there is no short answer to this question. But first and foremost is that God is at the center of our marriage. In addition, just like an athlete who may have incredible physical gifts and abilities can’t become great at a sport without practice, a happy and successful marriage isn’t possible without work.
Why start this blog? Because having come from a broken marriage, I know the pain that is involved when ones parents’ divorce. Because I wish my parents would have had some tools in their “marriage bag” that may have been able to repair what was broken. Because I wish my father would have understood what it means to be a leader in the house. But most of all, because I would like everyone to be able to say that they have “won” in their married lives.
