Marriage should be a lifestyle, not a casual relationship that can be terminated on a whim. Therefore it should not be entered into lightly or taken for granted. Once entered in, handle the marriage with care and remember why the decision was made to marry. This should be a careful decision because marriage ain’t no punk.

Marriage is a covenant between you, God, and your spouse. The requirement is that you keep the vows you recite to each other before God. No matter if the vows are traditional, spoken by a clergy-person or if you decide to write your own, it is assumed they will be honored.  If you are not the kind of person that values promises, marriage ain’t for you.

Marriage sometimes gets stressful to the point that you are going to feel like giving up. Don’t give up; you have to fight for your marriage. It takes two to fight, so there has to be a collective effort to make the marriage work. If you are not willing to go the extra mile, feel like you cannot apologize even if you are not in the wrong, and cannot humble yourself, marriage ain’t for you.

Marriage is a monogamous love affair between husband and wife. Before you decide to spend the rest of your life with someone, keep in mind that you are expected go to bed and wake up to the same person every day.  If you feel that you need “variety” and all you really want is a “hit and run,” marriage ain’t for you.

Finally, take your time to decide if marriage is for you. Maybe you desire to get married, but feel you are not ready for the commitment. That is ok, marriage should not be rushed. Take the time to complete the goals you want to achieve while single. Once you are ready and have found the one you want to spend the rest of your life with, be prepared to keep your vows, fight for your marriage and enjoy your life partner, because marriage ain’t no punk.

    Diane, I’m sorry the first marriage did not work out but know that all things work together for your good according to Romans 8:28. I will stand in agreement with you that your next marriage will be everlasting! -LaToya

    Lakiesha, do both of you want to stay in the marriage? Everyone makes mistakes in marriage. The question is, are you or your husband willing to forgive? Let me know. You can also email me at enjoyingyourmarriage.com
