And the reality of it all is just that…
It is a reality.
Not a reality show.
Do you see the irony in what we call these shows?
What the bachelor is blaring into the homes of America is not reality, people.
Not by a long shot.
I wish that we would stop portraying important aspects of our lives like
as something that comes and goes.
As something that you do just because you think someone it sounds like fun, or makes you look good.
As something that works when you take one beautiful, skinny, rich person and pair them with another beautiful, skinny rich person.
Ugh. If you’re gonna do a show like that, can the end result not be marriage?
I mean, call it something else!
A good marriage is a selfless marriage.
A good marriage is a loving marriage.
A good marriage is a self-sacrificing marriage.
It’s never all about me and my needs.
It is always all about my husband and all his needs.
It is not 50/50.
It is 100/100.
When I give everything in me to serve, please and love my husband…
and he gives everything in him to serve, please and love me – that is when we have a good, solid marriage.
Let’s be teaching our kids what marriage really is.
When 2 people are so focused on pleasing God that the only obvious response is loving their husband or wife with an unconditional love…
That is what marriage should look like.
Sorry ABC. You have it all, all totally wrong.
A happy marriage is a Godly marriage.
