Myth # 1: “If I could just marry the right person, my marriage would be great.”
The question you should be asking yourself is not did you marry the right person, but are you becoming the right person? God’s word tells us to become the type of person you are looking for and everything else will fall into place. Focus on being the right person and you will have a faithful marriage. Only Jesus is “Mr. Right.” So, to answer your questions…. If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, then YES, you married the right person.
Myth # 2: “Physical attraction is the key to a great marriage.”
You can be attracted to millions of people in the world. However, attraction is only an initiator, it is not a sustainer. For attraction and passion to continue, it has to be developed. Boobs and butts will turn a guys head, but it won’t turn his heart. So ask yourself, are you helping that person become more attracted to Jesus, or only to yourself?
Myth # 3: “Compatibility is crucial for a healthy lasting marriage.”
The divorce rate today is more than 50%. Pre arranged marriage divorce rate is only 4% because they have a different value on marriage. Thats Crazy!! In a healthy lasting marriage, its about spiritual chemistry. If you both love God, follow Jesus, encourage and strengthen each other to go deeper in your relationship with Christ, you will have a healthy lasting marriage. Your husband won’t become the Christian leader you want them to be by nagging all the time. Instead, if you follow, encourage, and submit despite their failures, you will help them reach their potential.
