Marriage is potentially one of the most intimate
relationships we may have. It can be intimate physically, mentally and
emotionally. In Australia we usually start our marriage because we are in
love….attracted to one another physically, mentally and emotionally. From
this point, there is always change. It is possible that both parties may
selflessly pursue the giving and receiving of intimacy and this will see the
marriage be enriched and grow in love and blessing. This perfection is
seldom experienced. There are usually things that mar, disrupt and spoil the
beauty of a loving marriage; such as worry, jealousy, focus on material
possessions, selfishness, addictions, pride and lust to name just a few.
Marriage sometimes deteriorates into a resigned acceptance of mediocrity at
best and a sea of hate at worst. But it needn’t be so…….
