Married myth

Most people get married believing a myth - that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they have longed for: companionship, sexual fulfilment, intimacy, friendship.

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, and people put love into marriage. There is no romance in marriage; people have to infuse romance into their marriages.

A couple must learn the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising - keeping the box full.

If you take out more than you put in, the box will remain empty, never filling up to its potential.
