True or false…and define
True. I once heard about a true story of a woman who developed cancer for which they had to do some reconstructive surgery on her mouth, but still left it somewhat disfigured. She was lamenting her ugly appearance to her husband in the hospital. He instinctively bent over and formed his lips to adjust to hers and kissed her.
Absolutely and obviously true – but I do question the use of the word “perfect” in your description. I would call it simply “successful”.
I have heard the old movie line of “love is never having to say you’re sorry.” = B.S. IMO
Love, and a successful marriage is being wiling to esteem your mate higher than yourself – which from time to time requires your sincere apologies.
@LBD – Yes, I understand. I view “perfect” as a play on people’s romantic views about utopian love and relationships. The grass is always greener on the other side of fence…in someone’s manure patch.
I love this quote from Dave Willis, “Real love is when you are completely committed to someone even when they are being completely unlovable”.
- I like this idea in principal, but sadly, there can be reasons to give up. I am of the “we are getting married and the d word is not an option type”, but there are things that will destroy a marriage.
- A perfect marriage is one that God intended it to be. He is the designer of humans and the designer of marriage. A marriage can glorify Him if it is a proper picture the Jesus and His bride, or it can fail to.
