As sat watching another meaningless episode of Teen Mom 2, I admit I’m a reality TV junkie. I noticed that everyone is always getting a divorce.
I feel that marriage is a sacred thing. When you make the vow to God to love your spouse for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health its a full comment to the other person and to God.
Most people these days only want to be apart of their spouses life when in the good times, when there is wealth, and when the spouse is healthy.
But what happens when you and your spouse fall on hard times, you lose your income, or one of you get sick. Are you going to run for a divorce like they do on reality TV?
I know that I won’t because I take my vows seriously and I will be using these fifteen bible verses in my marriage to get through the most difficult times.
