WHAT THAT VOW MEANS

From FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
TODAY Wednesday July 16, 2008

By Dr James Dobson

Remember when you promised to stay together no matter what during your wedding vows?

Couples don’t promise to stay together because they think things will never change.

They promise because they know things will change. And unless their commitment to the marriage is solid, those changes will likely come between them.

Life is made up of a series of surprises and alterations. Nothing stays the same for very long.

Jobs change, people get older, children grow up, parents die, friends leave and other friends take their place. Few people go through more than a few years without feeling drastic changes in the way their lives operate.

Unless couples go into a marriage understanding that fact, they’re likely to struggle with each new change.

That’s what a wedding vow is all about – it’s a promise to commit, no matter what.

So, unless you plan to keep that promise, think twice before heading to the altar.
