The Gritty, Raw Dance of Marriage


Marriage is hard. Pretty pictures and bite-sized highlights might give you a false impression that it only takes sparks and looks: but the gritty reality is work, tears, and sacrifice. It’s a dance, everyday, to compromise and serve. In the depth of this tough humility, there can be great beauty. Real joy requires a fight from our very best.

  1. After nearly 40 years married (to the same woman!) we keep to our promise – it is for life. Struggle through it, but together. Everything is to thicken the glue, not flake it away with indifference or selfishness.
    By the way, I like the photo – so serene.
    Peace
