Eternal Happiness is the stuff of legends if you ask most people, but, it needn’t be that way.
My wife and I just returned from a wedding in Cincinnati. Her first cousin was getting married. He is Catholic and, as such, embraces the doctrine that marriage is a life-long commitment. Funny, most people his age look at marriage as if it were a pair of shoes. If the fit doesn’t seem so “perfect” after the novelty wears off, just cast them aside and find another pair.
People often enter into marriage with the expectation that there will be arguments and there will be hard times. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. If you expect friction, that is what you’ll get. If you enter the Holy state of matrimony with the heart of a servant and the goal of providing happiness for your spouse, then follow through with it, you should be content and find every happiness.
I am fortunate because I have a wonderful wife and she feels the same about me. We are a genuine partnership and truly care about each other. I place her happiness before my own and in so doing, I have been very happy.
May Andrew and Beth find every happiness.
