Boring Marriage

Thursday, May 17, 2018

Good marriages are so incredibly boring. There are no stunts. When things go wrong, people choose to forgive one another and do the hard work to reach the goal of marital harmony. Good marriages also weather storms in life. The storms don’t come to stay so when they lift, the marriage is still there.

Good marriages would make awful movie scripts. Who wants to watch people showing up for one another and carrying the weight of responsibility? Who wants to see a storyline where children are loved well? The foundation of such love comes from a boring marriage.

Good marriages take time to nurture. They are built day in and day out. Results are measured not in social media Likes but in generations of people positively affected by such relationship.

That's the marriage I am going for.
