THE MARRIAGE BOX

AUTHOR UNKNOWN

 

“Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they have longed for: Companionship, Intimacy, Friendship, etc.  The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box.  You must put something in before you can take anything out.  There is no love in marriage, love is in people.  People put love in marriage.  There is no romance in marriage, you have to infuse it into your marriage.  A couple must learn the art and form the habit of GIVING, LOVING, SERVING, PRAISING, AND KEEPING THE BOX FULL.  If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty.”
