Harrison on Marriage

Rev. Matt Harrison has some excellent thoughts on marriage. (Click for the whole article)

Three key points from this piece:

The first secret of joy in marriage is that it is God’s own act.

The second secret of a joyful marriage is that marriage is an act of the will.

The third secret to joy in marriage is that with the deep conviction that God has put a couple together, and that couple wills to be together– come hell or high water – the feelings of love and joy, over time, will emerge in a way more powerful and surprising than any words can

possibly express.

I believe that another key to a strong marriage is to remember that the word "love" is a verb, not a feeling. You have to BE love(ing) in order to FEEL love.
