#AskBrotherWord - Marriage Material

Yesterday, one of my readers questioned whether or not they were Marriage Material.  It’s a bit alarming the rate at which divorce happenes these days and with marriages falling apart daily, it’s easy to understand why so many have lost faith in marriage.  As I expressed previously, marriage isn’t broken, people are, and as such, we have to find ways to mend ourselves in order to posiiton ourselves for our future spouses and properly prepare for the work that will determine the longevity and prosperity of your marriage.  You train to run a marathon, you take continuing courses and learn new skills to be proficient on your job, and you spend hours honing your craft.  So, why should it be any different in your marriage?  What you put into is what you will get out of it.

Brother Word,

Sincerely,

Jumping In Place
