Describe your parents’ marriage. What was great about it, and what do you wish had been different? What are some ways you can clearly see that their relationship has influenced your own marriage?
My parent’s got divorced when I was two and the entire thing, until the day my dad died, was a mess. My mother was not a good role model. She has been married, and divorced, five times.
Unfortunately I am a statistic in the fact that I have been married and divorced…following in the footsteps of those before me. However, now that I am saved, and married to my current husband – we both agree…divorce is NOT AN OPTION. PERIOD.
How would you like to see your own marriage improve? What are you personally willing to do to start making those changes?
My husband and I agree that communication is still an issue in our marriage – we just both have a difficult time. I’m not sure how to make changes, unfortunately. If you have any suggestions, I am sure open to hearing them!
Describe the kind of marriage you would like your children to one day experience. How are you helping prepare them now for those relationships? How are you praying for them and their spouses?
I want my boys to have a biblcial marriage – a marriage designed by God Himself. A loving, caring, sharing relationship. I believe my husband and I are showing our boys how to work through different things in marriage. We are FAR from perfect but I feel, overall, we are a good example. I have been praying for my boys’ spouses since being saved…although this has reminded me I need to do it more…it has been awhile since I’ve prayed that prayer.
What interactions and habits in your marriage are worth imitating? What interactions and habits in your marriage are not worth imitating?
Worth imitating: love and laughter, kissing, holding hands, going for walks, reading our Bibles and praying together, forgiveness
Not worth imitating: lack of communication, emotional outbursts (by me)
