On my way to London from Denver, I met this couple in the plane who have been married for 34years. I said to them, it is a miracle to find people who have been married for that long in this part of the world. What is your secret? The wife immediately said; ‘ Patience ‘. The husband added; “communication” and the wife again said; “Respect”.
It was a bit surprising to hear this from Westerners as many people in the Western world have forgotten about this truth. What many people call “LOVE” is selfishness. Your marriage is sure to fail with preconditions and stereotypical mindsets as well as comparisons.
These things destroy homes. Nothing works except you work it. Love my friends is work, it is intentional; there is nothing magical about love. If you fall in love, marriage will open your eyes and slap you out of that delusion and make you see that love is an intentional decision to stay in a relationship despite the fault you notice in your partner. This is why I was not surprised when this couple first mentioned love as the secret to their 34years of marriage.
My prayer is that we will build the capacity to be patient with our spouse; we will respect and communicate well. Good Morning London! The eagle has landed ahead of London Upgrade conference.
