MYTH #8: If my feelings change or things get hard, it means I must have married the wrong person and I should get a divorce to pursue my own happiness.
TRUTH: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Commit to following God’s plans instead of your own fickle feelings. If every couple quit when things got difficult or feelings changed, then 100% of couples would be divorced! The couples who make it aren’t the ones who never had a reason to give up. They’re the ones who decide that their commitment to each other is always going to be more important than their differences or flaws. Don’t give up on each other. A “perfect marriage” is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other! In the end, persevering through the difficult times creates more love, peace and happiness than quitting and searching for happiness with someone else.
